WELCOME TO WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS
Happy New Year to all of our patients, friends and family of Coastal Carolina OBGYN.
Thank you for choosing us to be your gynecological and obstetrical provider. We appreciate you and we will continue to strive to provide you with the very best and most compassionate care possible. Excellent medical care however, does not only deal with treating ailments of our physical bodies, but also talks about prevention, nutrition, and mental and spiritual health. I have found that the latter three topics are as important as the first two, and I encourage everyone to make 2019 the year of mental and spiritual healing as well as beginning a path to wholesome nutrition.
Starting today I will share with you a monthly Wednesday Wellness blog, which I hope you will find beneficial.
Mother Theresa is often accredited with the poem “Anyway”, but it actually originated from a 1968 leadership book by then 19-year-old Harvard student, Kent M. Keith. He called it “The Paradoxical Commandments”. Mother Theresa found these commandments so inspiring that she hung them on the wall in her children’s home in Calcutta, and thus they became famously known as the “Anyway” poem.
I would like to begin 2019 with sharing this poem and invite you to meditate on it, and encourage you to forgive, be kind, succeed, be honest and sincere, create, be happy, give your best, do good and always love anyway.
People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centered
LOVE THEM ANYWAY
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives
DO GOOD ANYWAY
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight
People really need help but may attack you if you help them
HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU GOT ANYWAY.
