Hospitals Outlook

Recently I have spent more time than I have anticipated or wanted in hospitals looking over people I love. When walking in to a hospital our sudden mind process is dread, nerves or just seems to be a sudden jump to general negativity, understandably of course.

Hospital staff running around, relatives waiting for staff to arrive to there relatives, people crying, people shouting, people hugging or people smiling, it all happens within the walls of a hospital surrounded by the staff of the NHS. Hospitals have a spectacular way of bringing a families close together, bringing people who wouldn’t necessarily be together, together. Each person’s priority becomes the same one, we work as a team, we communicate as a team and we support as a team. Family members visiting walking is seen as ‘normal,’ however, not all patients will have a family around there beds/bays. (If you can pass a smile to a stranger on a hospital bed, then do so, it may be the only smile they get all day, be that kind person you know you rock at being.)

Hospitals bring people closer, hospitals and the staff within the walls help patients get better, help patients eat, help patients function throughout there days and help us be able to keep the people we love around us.

Don’t take a second for granted, don’t take the NHS for granted and certainly try and walk down the next hospital corridor noticing not only the sad parts but also all the love surrounding the walls, surrounding the bays and surrounding the patients, it’s magical when you look at it from that perspective.

Shining

Hey guys, I haven’t blogged in the last couple of days and I can’t today (fully.) I am having a day of pure happiness and I don’t want to waste a second of it, I am choosing to not write fully today as I am reunited with a special person in my life, I am choosing to eat ice cream, laugh my way down the road singing songs loudly instead. The message I want to get across in a short sentence is that it is important to choose ourselves and our mental health over anything else as remember, we only have ourselves ultimately. Surround yourself with positive people and positive vibes and your life will automatically become a better experience.

P. S anyone who is having a low day or gets them (as I do) that’s ok, it’ll be your turn to have a happy day tomorrow maybe, hang on in there, keep on going and remember, you do YOU. Self care is important for each individual, we all require a dose of self love so be kind and give it to yourself.
