My cousin shares words of encouragement via text EVERY morning. It is a wonderful way to stay connected and to start the day.
I look forward to starting my day on a positive note. And, in turn, I share these words of inspiration and encouragement with nine others.

I went to acupuncture last night and felt relaxed.
I realize how lucky I am to receive care from a community clinic that makes this treatment affordable to everyone.

I am able to go to the grocery store and purchase food that supports my health.
It reminded me that not all people have this luxury.

Even though I wasn't feeling well and was having a grumpy morning, my husband made me a breakfast burrito, a coffee to go, and told me I looked beautiful.
My morning felt less difficult and I felt loved.

My wife took two days off from work so she could make sure all the procedures were accomplished to acquire our new used car.
After our car was totaled by a collision with a deer. My wife found the new used car and made all the arrangements to acquire the car. We now have a car with all the modern bells and whistles she wants.

He snuggled my doggie and gave her bacon treats.

A group of AMAZING women and I went out into the community of San Diego today to vaccinate some of our city's homeless population with the Hepatitis A vaccine. It was truly inspiring to see! The individuals that we were supporting were extremely grateful for our attention and took advantage of asking questions of our nurses that come from various disciplines. Each person volunteering their time gave in their own unique way - we had one non-nurse leader out circulating among the crowd to encourage people to take advantage of this service, while one nurse that is bilingual circulated among the Spanish speaking, and one nurse leader became the token baby sitter, while moms got their vaccine. My cup run over - I was and am truly grateful to work for Kaiser Permanente!
The contributions of many made the work less taxing and far more rewarding and inspiring. It truly started my week off right!

Despite uncertainty, yesterday I handled a situation that some time ago would have really troubled me. The person that was going to help me with the last details of a project couldn't come with me, and pretty much nobody else could lend a hand.
But that obstacle actually served for the best, since I got to spend the evening with a friend (who helped me) that I have not seen in quite a while. Whole experience made me feel grateful for being a little more serene that before.

My coworkers surprised me with a flower delivery to say great job on my show and they feel lucky to have me as part of our department
The flowers brighten my day and the kind words gave me a sense of joy, pride, and humility. Being appreciated and acknowledged lifts my confidence and morale.

John treated us to a Monday night dinner at BJ's! Even better, both Mark and Jack ate and were well-behaved!
My heart was full of love at the dinner table and I did not have to cook or do dishes! :)

My co-workers wrote 40 things they appreciate about me for my birthday.
It reminded me of how many people our lives intertwine with, how our interactions affect each other, and the importance of living out what we value.

That my workshop went much smoother today, and on top of that, someone took it seriously enough to seek me out afterwards to ask me a question.
It made me feel like the hard work and time I put into the workshop was worth it, and that there are people who care about the topic.

Another educator on Twitter has long been an inspiration to me but recently we have had the opportunity to speak and potentially work together. Her validation of my approach to education and interest in our work is something I'm truly grateful for.
In addition to adding to my collective resources to push for positive change, her validation of our work will continue to motivate our team and myself personally.
