Thought for the Day

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

One of our teammates shared the below message with me and asked to remain anonymous, but I love how this person tackles each and every day with a positive filled mindset.  Thanks for sharing!!!

“I have severe Central Sleep Apnea, translates to I haven’t had a decent night of sleep in 20 years and I always feel pressure in my head from lack of sleep every day. This is how I tackle each day.

Happiness and depression simply doesn’t happen. It is choice of attitude. In the evening as my mind is racing, I think how wonderful it will be to be sleeping. I prep myself to be tired at bed time. When I go to bed I think about how great I am going to feel in the morning and what a great day I am going to have. Not to prepare myself means I wake up groggy and annoyed at the alarm. Preparing myself I wake up to the first hint of alarm, hop out of bed and excited for the day. This, despite I never had more than 45 secs of uninterrupted sleep the entire night. Despite the pressure in my head from the poor sleep, I don’t acknowledge it. I am so excited for the day. Throughout my day I throw smiles on to my face and raise my arms in excitement.  All day long I am so pumped and excited. It is an underlining feeling I always have. I may yawn all day, but it doesn’t bother me in the least because I am sooo happy all the time.

I could be depressed from my lack of sleep and just be in the mood of frustration daily. But why do I want to do that to myself. What did I do to deserve that? Why do I choose to suffer? To be happy or depressed is a choice. It doesn’t happen. We program our subconscious to produce the chemicals that are body reacts to. Do you care about your lot in life relative to the possibilities or expectations? You could be justifiably upset with your lot. So? Why choose to suffer. Your lot does not have anything to do with being happy or sad. If you are in pain, that is because you choose it for whatever reason. No one but you will feel your pain, unless you gripe about it. Then others simply want to get away from you. Why not despite how life is going for you be awesomely excited and happy. Sure makes a long day go quickly and who knows with this can do attitude maybe you can make your life better for you and those you love.”

Because Dermatologists treat more than just skin cancer!
