I had lunch today with a girl I know from a neighboring lab - the lab I bring some of my samples to for processing. She told me that some of her labmates had labeled me one of the happiest people in the hospital. Apparently, I always have a smile on my face.
That makes me really happy. No matter what kind of mood I'm in, I always strive to be in good humour when I'm at work. Since I work at one of the leading cancer centres in the world, I know that many of the people I encounter each day are going through a particularly hard and trying time. Me? I have nothing to be upset or angry or cranky about: I have an awesome job that I get paid well for, I work with a great team of girls, I have my health, I have a loving family and home life... I am incredibly lucky and so, so blessed.
Smile. It's worth it.
