I usually try to embrace positivity no matter the circumstance. But let’s be honest—on the first Monday back from vacation, this is how I really feel. I saw this quote in an email newsletter this morning and totally identified, especially since my Mondays are double-filled with work and physician shadowing. At least I enjoy what I do and have a pretty white desk underneath. 😊 And coffee. ☕️ “This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
True meditation is a spiritual practice, but on a daily basis its rewards are less than omnipotence. It is meant to change one’s perception of reality, not reality itself. When we close our eyes to meditate, our mind does not go completely blank, void of all thoughts, at one with the universe, because just as hearts are meant to beat and lungs to breathe, brains are meant to think and will not be completely devoid of thought, perhaps until we are dead. If done consistently, meditation is a spiritual exercise that allows the meditator to control his thoughts, not walk on water or shape shift. … The point is that when you open your eyes from meditation the world will not be different, you will. This change is simple and easily missed, but very profound. 😊

The first beneficiary of compassion is always oneself. When compassion, or warmheartedness, arises in is and our focus shifts away from our own narrow self-interest, it is as if we open an inner door. It reduces fear, boosts confidence and brings us inner strength. By reducing distrust, it opens us to others and brings us a sense of connection to others, and sense of purposes and meaning in life. 🌿 Dalai Lama 🙌🏼 Have a happy day ☀️😊#hellohappiness#liveyourbestlife

We all chatted about our favorite parts of our vacation on the way home. We literally chatted incessantly about all the wonderful memories we made throughout our first beach trip in three years. I tried to write down all the fun things we did about halfway through the trip, and I filled a whole sheet of paper with fun memories. It was non-stop fun and relaxation. But hands down, my favorite part of the whole trip was having so much uninterrupted time with my family. It was something we all needed, and I feel like we came back as a stronger team ready to do another year of life together.
