Last night we had a regional meeting with some amazing Chiropractors and their amazing Chiropractic Assistants. It was a great meeting. We focused on the importance of goals, but how goals don’t “drive” us, it’s the purpose behind the goals, the WHY that truly drives. I was honored to speak at the event on the subject and even more honored to be a part of such a special group of people. We don’t get together to discuss billing, or insurance, or xrays or etc. We get together to see how we can serve others better. Our missions “jive” in that we just want to help as many people as we can, and we get together to help each other along that path!
The past week or so has been kinda “blah” on the energy front… It happens to us all. And it can happen for a looooooong time if we let it. The choice is ours to make sure a fluke in mentality doesn’t become a full-on-funk.
I am grateful for great books that help switch my mental state to a positive one!
I am grateful for great music that makes my heart bounce, and my energy flow!
I am grateful for amazing friends and family that make my soul shine!
I am grateful for nature and immersing myself in it (whether that be for a minute or 60+) has a way to re-energize and revitalize.
I am grateful for all these things/people that are within inches from me at any given time, all I have to do is reach out and let them in :)!
This week, I have had quite a few patients hug me. A couple of patients came in, not even to get treated, but just to give myself and my awesome staff hugs. I am so grateful for what I get to do, and the fact that our patient’s lives change so much through Chiropractic that they just want to hug us to show their appreciation… that’s pretty dang AMAZING!!
Sheri and Isaac were at a Boy Scout camping trip Sunday-last night. Payton had spent the night at Sheri’s parents and then at a friend’s house Sunday/Monday. I am so grateful to have my whole family back! We head out to the Lake of the Ozarks for a long 4th of July weekend beginning Friday and I am just so thankful to have everyone together and to head on another adventure soon! (Sheri dubbed this the “summer of adventure” and so far it is living up to its moniker.)
Saturday was the 9th Annual Shawn Micheal Hall charity horseshoe tournament. It is an event I look forward to all year. Great friends we haven’t seen in at least a year. Great conversations about our amazing friends that were taken too soon. Laughter, horseshoes, libations, camaraderie, family, connection and just absolute fun. I am grateful I be a part of it and to be connected to such amazing people!
I have a great friend (probably worthy of “BFF Keychain” status) that I have known since Middle School. I have lived in Kansas City while he was in Denver, He has lived in Michigan and now North Carolina while I am in Broomfield, Colorado. We still have remained very close, texting weekly, even talking every once in a while ;). I consider him one of the best people on the planet and I am truly grateful for our friendship that has stood the test of time and distance. Yesterday, he called me to ask if I would be his newest son’s Godfather! I am completely honored and humbled! So thankful!
In the past couple years, I have become great friends with Blake. We’ve lived in the same neighborhood for a few years, our kiddos are best friends. Sheri and Erin (his wife) are great friends as well. They would come over spur-of-the moment for barbeques or vice versa, we brew beer together. All in all, pretty sure we are kindred spirits :). They are moving to Golden, only about a 30 min drive, but won’t be as easy to “pop on over.” I will miss that, but I know our friendship will also endure. I am grateful!
Sheri has been best friends with Kim(my) since I think elementary school! Kim has lived in California, New Zealand, even Antarctica! They have remained best friends through it all and still turn to each other for guidance and connection! It is truly amazing to see and I am grateful!
