“What is Your Joy?”

Last weekend I went to a new Primary Care Doctor appointment. This is a big deal for me because I have not had a Primary Care Doctor for over ten years. I do the maintenance; the OB/Gyno appt., my mammogram, I get blood work through my employer.

I reflected, “I’m getting these wellness labs done, but unless I discuss it with a primary care dr., no one will ever see my results, no one will help me make possibly corrections that I may not know I need to do.”

While I was at the doctor, we ran through a checklist:

1. Have you had your flu shot?

2. Do you have your appointment with your OB/Gyno?

3. Is your mammogram scheduled?

4. Have you had a colonscopy?

5. What’s your Joy?

“WHAT?!?!”

I think about that all the time, “Finding My Joy”, but here I was at my doctor’s office and he was asking,

“What’s your Joy?”

At first I thought it was a trick question! It seemed weird to me initially, but our emotional wellbeing is as important as our physical wellbeing.

I find Joy in my family, in my work as an educator, which is helping and connecting with kids everyday, in nature, in simple things; a bird at our bird feeders, in vegetables growing in our garden, a sunset or sunrise, in harmony and balance.
