SACRED HEART HOSPITAL 900 W CLAIREMONT AVE EAU CLAIRE, WI 54701-5105 This publication in no way seeks to serve as a substitute for professional medical care. Consult your physician before undertaking any form of medical treatment or adopting any exercise program or dietary guidelines. BY EMMY B. Inspirations AT THE END OF THE DAY… TAKE A MOMENT FOR YOURSELF AS YOU WRAP UP A BUSY DAY AND ENJOY THESE POSITIVE THOUGHTS FROM A HSHS SACRED HEART HOSPITAL COLLEAGUE. I RECENTLY READ an essay that posed this question: "What would you love to tell yourself if you could travel back in time to give your 18-year-old self some advice about life?" I was able to quickly come up with quite a few pieces of advice! Here are my top 5: 1. Find a profession you love. Pursue your interests and talents, because you don't want to find yourself years later working in a field you don't feel any passion for and wondering, "How the heck am I going to do this for the next 30 years?" 2. Discover simple joys daily and appreciate the blessings in your life. Don't take for granted those things that other people may be praying for. 3. Be the best possible you. Don't tie yourself up in knots trying to be the person you think everyone expects you to be. Follow Judy Garland's advice: "Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." 4. Don't let fear make choices for you. The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you're too scared to make a mistake. So don't doubt yourself. In life, it's not so much about getting a chance, but rather taking a chance. 5. People aren't mind readers, so tell them what you're thinking. Good communication will be key in so many areas of your life. Note to self: It's never too late to take some good advice! For more "Inspirations at the End of the Day…," visit >
