Attitude of Gratitude

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

      -Brian Tracy

I probably should have read this quote this morning. My day would have been much less stressful. I have screened many resumes, interviewed several people, had them complete pre-employment testing; but I haven’t found the right people- yet.   Sooo, today was completely chaotic. EMGs and Botox injections all day, plus turning rooms over, drawing up  Botox, keeping up with everything clinical, writing notes, dictating EMG reports, and so on and so on and so on.  Still here in fact, but I needed a break.

So I figured now would be a good time to consider that for which I am grateful, so I can change my attitude, that has been admittedly foul all day.

I’m truly grateful for the presence and patience of my husband. An electrical engineer (with a master’s from Vandy’s Owen College of Management) who left his career as an engineer when I opened my second location and needed someone like him to help (but I couldn’t afford anyone with his resume and experience). With no background in healthcare, he jumped right in and assumed responsibility for more than I can itemize. And to top it off, he is not too proud to work the front desk when needed or clean the floors when needed. My family actually thanks him for putting up with me- literally right in my face- they thank him, lol!  He calms me down when I’m acting a plum fool in the nurses station during clinic when I get angry and frustrated.

I am also still grateful for the clean slate I have been given.  It makes me crazy when things are chaotic, and I make it worse by yelling at the only person in the trenches with me in my Franklin office; but I know that this is a step forward in achieving something “bigger and better” than my current situation.
