I'm not a vet, I am actually an RN, and I stumbled across your article thanks to a search on Google - your words ring so very true that I am printing this to share with my co-workers! I work on an orthopedic floor, and most days at work I wear many hats - nurse/confessor/babysitter/waitress/cheerleader and more - it can be exhausting to keep that positive attitude...but it is so very worth it! I can't tell you how many times I have seen a very discouraged patient smile and start to feel better about their situation - and in the end, when they are up and walking again and finally get to go home and thank you for all that you have done for them...well, it's just the icing on the cake! Also, you are so right about attitudes being contagious - we work in pretty tight quarters, and all it takes is for one of my co-workers to have a bad night for the rest of us to feel that we are getting sucked right into that vortex of negativity! Happily, I am (and hopefully always will be) a glass is half full kind of person - life is too short, and I want to enjoy every moment of mine! Let's face it, we don't laugh enough as it is - I don't want to spend my life being a cranky, miserable woman! Here's to happiness!!
