Disappointment

Disappointment is defined as the sadness caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s expectations. When we measure by worldly standards, we are disappointed everyday. Today I was disappointed many times. It started with expecting someone to do his job in a timely fashion for the sake of patients. Unfortunately he chose to do the minimum that would not break his contractual obligations. Patients and staff bore the burden. Then someone else interfered with my care of a patient by literally practicing medicine without a license. Instead of being commended for calling them out on their behaviors, I received negative feedback for expecting too much. Wow, I already have my own self worth issues and this kind of nonsense only feeds that lie. Thankfully I know that these events are part of the enemy’s lies and I hold on to the one true Hope.

Positive Attitude

Every day I battle with the stresses of life and maintaining a positive attitude. It seems that the world is collapsing into a chaotic quagmire of anger and hatred and hurt and pain. But I try to remember that focusing on the many blessings in my life always allows me to see with rose colored glasses. Then I realize that changing my circumstances starts within me. The Spirit inside me ultimately guides me to do the right thing, despite my contrariness and my inherent laziness. Life is a journey that should bear good fruit.
