Expressing gratitude


Many times at my job (or any job), it is easy to focus on negatives. 

I just got yelled at by my patient and his family about issues out of my control.

I have to work on Christmas while most of the world is drinking eggnog and unwrapping presents.

I don’t look my age so I don’t get treated seriously.

And then there are days that you get a thank you! A hug from a patient that finally feels better and is able to go home.  A complete turn around.

It really reinforces to me how empowering expressing gratitude can be. It means everything.



And obviously sweets don’t hurt.


How do you express gratitude?
