It’s a good day to have a good day

Sometime last year I was wallowing in irritation about my neurologist deciding she was going into telemedicine and so lucky me needed to find a new doc to treat my migraines. I picked one, close to home, I really liked her a lot, but as with all new doctors – you KNOW how they are – she wanted to take “a baseline of tests.” You know…. ALLL the tests. Blood tests, MRI of my brain, blah blah blah blah. In my heart, I knew everything was fine but I was super annoyed that I had to do the MRI.

Like SUPER annoyed.

If you’ve never had one, the pre-call scheduler will tell you it takes AN HOUR AND A HALF that you’ll be in the tube inches from your face, not moving. (This is not true by the way, the hour and half part.)

So I was totally stressing about that. He suggested medicating so it would be not too anxiety laden, but then I would not be allowed to drive for A DAY to let it all the tranquilizer work out of my system.

Clearly, he needed his own head examined. As fun as he made it sound, I wasn’t doing that either.

So all this was getting me worked up and the hubs was needling me with jokes that made me more mad and finally…. I decided to cancel it, and then I changed my mind again, and decided that it was literally all in my head. Literally.

What I needed to cancel was my attitude. Enough complaining and worrying. About all of it.

I was lucky to be able to have a doctor, and insurance, that would allow me to have this level of care at my convenience. I needed to get over my spoiled self. I didn’t HAVE to do this. I was able to do this. It was a privilege to have this health care system because we’ve all heard the stories about our friends in other countries and how long they have to wait for this and that.

That was kind of a ah-ha moment for me. From then on, whenever I found myself having stinking thinking about something, I reminded myself that there were probably people in the world that wished they could do what I was doing – or that there would be a time in my life when I wished I could do whatever it is again – like those hour-long winter music concerts at school or work parties with the hubs. 😉 Just kidding, those are fab.

Anyway, when I saw this sign come up for the Décor Steal of the Day, I had to have it because it’s pretty much my mantra, right? It’s a good day to have a good day. It’s all in how you look at it.
