My thoughts about last week's tragedy

Hello dearies, happy new week to all of us. Am actually writting this post from the theatre lounge, as i have a few minutes before the next procedure will begin.
Last week was very emotional for me. Aside the fact that I am naturally so emotional,
we lost a patient ( a colleague from another hospital).
Loosing a patient is very heavy and trying, mainly because I have dealt with a loss before and it keeps taking me back to that moment and also because you have had time to bond with your patients that you feel the pain when they pass on.

I can't discuss the diagnosis or what happened here because its confidential but I won't fail to share what I took away from it with you.
As his pulse vanished after repeated efforts to resuscitate him and the time of death was called.
I couldn't help feeling sorry for the relatives who couldn't contain the pain.
It brought me to the harsh reality of life, as I went back home that day I kept wondering to myself
That's it?
 That's all to life? 
We work so hard, stress over a lot and in no time that's it?
Life! Life! Life!
Why do we worry so much?
Why do we let things bug us so much?

From henceforth
I choose to be happy every chance I get,
I choose to thank God instead of complaining.
I choose to love me and all around me.
I choose to live my life the best way that I can,
I choose to smile,laugh and celebrate life.
I choose to quiet the voices in my head and outside of it that remind me of what I don't have and instead replace it with thoughts of every reason I have to smile.
I choose to make peace with God and enjoy the peace that he alone can give.

While we do our best to take care of our health by eating right,exercising, stopping harmful habits and getting our health check from time to time, it is God who gives life.
You are saved not because you are a doctor,nurse, politician or because you neither drink nor smoke not even because you are physically fit but because of his grace and mercy.

Are you living your best life?
Do you thank God enough for your life?
Are you doing your best to be happy no matter what?
Have a blessed day darlings

Thanks for stopping by

XOXO

  1. It's always sad losing patients because we doctors have feelings too. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace, Amen! I concur with the lessons u have learnt from the incident. We do not know when our time will be up and so we should always try and be at peace with God and use every opportunity we have to affect the lives of those around us positively.
