The Lengths We’d Go

When someone matters to us, we’d go to any length to show them how much we care.

And fun fact, when we matter to ourselves, we do the very same for ourselves! Have you done something out of your way for yourself as of late? If so, awesome! Keep it up! If not, that’s okay, too. Set a holiday intention to give yourself that caring, thoughtful gift.

Whether there is one person or ten people who matter this much to you, hold them close and cherish every minute you have with them ♥ Show them how much you care, and thank them for always being there.

To my ‘people’ in this beautiful world, and to my community on this blog, thank you for always being there.

You Are A Gift In This World

I said goodbye to a patient recently. We both were overjoyed in a way, having completed the patient’s comprehensive oral health care to a point of maintenance and prevention!

What a gift it is to see someone return to oral health!

(Thank you to my patient ♥ I am so proud of how far you have come.) But the goodbye was bittersweet, the reasons for the patient leaving being challenging, to say the least.

In saying goodbye, I was reminded of what strength we all have. It’s so easy to get lost in the run from task 1 to task 2, and to grow overwhelmed by our challenges. It’s easy to forget all of the beauty around us and all the strength within us.

Today, I send thoughts of strength to that patient to find the next step in life’s journey, and send a reminder to myself and my friends of what strength and beauty we each bring to this world. Cherish that strength, live in the moment, and, at every turn, treasure one another.
