I had a doctor's appointment today and on the way to the med center, I was thinking happy thoughts and marveling at the fact that at my last appointment I noticed how the staff were so friendly. I was so impressed. So when I got to the registration desk, I was met with a warm smile and it was pleasant.
My name was called into the area where the nurse would take my blood pressure and she had a mean mug and in addition, she was very curt. So try as I might to crack jokes and be upbeat she continued on her diva attitude. What took the cake is when she bid me goodbye with a matching, "you're all set" dismissal.
I could just as easily have been as curt to her but I was too happy with my initial expectation, now deflated, but did not want to let one person really steal my joy today. It's bad enough that my blood pressure read a bit on the high side, so what the heck.
There will be days like these only because we are not in possession of magic wands to make life a bed of roses, so it really helps that I have this outlet to share my thoughts about it. If I didn't have a blog, no biggie, I will probably have a journal. It helps to let it out even to pour into words because one person's apparent problems is like a virus to all who they are in contact with especially when they don't really know how to just let it slide. I am by no means perfect when it comes to this but when I happen to be a recipient of such a dismal attitude, I try to let it slip off me and refuse to get infected. I post this artwork I did a while back because she reminded me of the face this girl made at me today. I would have rather gotten a smile instead.
Till my next rant.... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
