I've had a couple of medical bills on my desk I had been avoiding since the beginning of the week. I finally decided to tackle them today before the mail man arrived. I glanced over them and thought "Blagh! I'd much rather be using this money to..." then I paused. The bill I was looking at was from my dentist. I actually happen to like my dentist and my smile. Thanks to him, I still have a nice set of pearly whites...a few fillings, root canals and crowns, but I still have all my teeth and for that, I am very thankful. I smiled with gratitude and realized that looking at things positively completely changed my attitude! Instead of complaining, I thought about sending him a little doodle to express my gratitude.
I used a sheet of yellow paper that I found on my desk, cut it in half and began to doodle. Once I was done, I snapped a picture of course, then I folded it in thirds, placed the check in the center, folded the flaps inwards, and enclosed it in an envelope along with the invoice.
I'm sure it'll surprise whoever processes the payments. I mean, how often do people include little notes of joy with their payables? Not many, I would think. I hope my little dose of positive energy makes them smile, the same way I smiled when I realized how blessed I am to have the money to care for my dental health, and how blessed I am to have a dental provider like him and his very caring staff.
