As my normal routine I would turn in my iPhones iPod and it would play a random song on my list coz I have it on shuffle. Today, the first song that played was Daniel Powter's song Bad Day (yah! Remember that American Idol Farewell song seasons ago?).
I immediately skipped the song and refused to get sucked into the message of the song, hence, it's title. I did my normal morning routine, took a shower, put my make-up on, blow dried my hair and with extra time I got to curl my hair. I would normally go to work with my hair barely fix and just down and straight. I got compliments from the people at work and gladly thanked them. I've been growing out my hair since I got over going crazy with the "emo" look with 5 different short layers and just messy hair and wanted to rocks some beach waves for this summer. And why not start today, where everyone was waiting for the day to come to actually feel like summer in Seattle where everybody has been really excited for the 77° weather. haha!
My normal work schedule starts off opening Radiology Admitting at 630am, but before going to my desk, I would stop by the emergency room where I would have my morning talk/catching up with a good friend of mine Eiryl who moved to graveyard shift because of school. We used to hang together all the time at work when she worked in the morning but she had to make choices. This time was different, after not seeing each other the whole weekend and an extra day off for her, she told me that Jael, who works for Radiology has called with a patient who has been somewhat complaining about being asked to be there early for check in but felt like he was not being entertained from his needs. I rushed going there so i can attend to the patient right away and as soon as I got there I saw my patient and he immediately gave me a look. As soon as I call him to go to my desk so I can check him in, he immediately said "I don't know why would they ask me to come in early for check in", I quickly responded and said that his appointment is not until 730am and they just want early check ins just in case there's other things to be done before a procedure. He was definitely one of those "difficult" patients but that would not ruin my early day. I calmed him down and apologized for the inconvenience and politely explained his next steps. I suddenly remember my friend Nate from SoCal, he always have these nice and inspiring words on his Facebook page every morning and I always looking forward on reading them. I remember he once said that your positive attitude would feed in to other people. I think I just did that with my patient. Thanks Nate!
After getting my breakfast and moving to the emergency room at 830am, my coworker Michele and I would go out and do our morning routine but again today was different, my day even got better coz Eiryl stayed for some overtime then Rizza ended up working with us since one guy called in sick. I get to hang out with my chicas all day at work!!! YAY!!! To make my day even complete, my Poppa Twinky surprised me at work today!!! I love it when he does that! And mind you, every time he surprises me, I would just so happen to look outside my window and see him from a far walking, almost like I can feel him around. haha! Super corny but true! I have been wishing him "Good luck" with his new job since last night and this morning and im happy I got to do it again but this time in person. Poppa used to live 2 blocks away from my hospital and he still gets to park there by permit. Maybe this means I'll get morning visits from him from now on. Haha!!!
Today was a really good day. I was thinking positive all day and brushing negative thoughts away. I learned that its true when you think positive thoughts and energy it would feed in the rest of your day. I hope this continues!
