Is it chance or destiny????

So, as I have stated in previous posts I work as an EMR specialist all over the country. This job allows me to meet some of the most amazing people and especially some of the most amazing women. One such woman was a physical therapist named Susan. Now Susan would come in every day and make sure to give a smile and a bright shiny hello and handshake to everyone she saw. She would ask about your family, your likes and dislikes and everything in between. Getting busy as work tends to do I would often smile and greet her but never really got the opportunity to sit down and really have a conversation with her. Well on my second to last day in a random moment she walked in and sat across from and struck up a conversation and little did I know that conversation would fill me with so much energy I feel like its radiating off me as I type this.  We began the conversation with the basics,” How is your day going?” and “How long will you guys be here?” Then she hit me with the whammy,” So traveling all over and studying alternative medicine what do you think is the biggest fall down in our health care system?”  Now those who know me know I am never at a loss for words but I really had to take a moment and consider what she was asking me and where I stood on the issue. I then explained the propensity of healthcare to treat symptoms not origins and the impact of big pharma and how these two-issues coupled create a society where patients are the ultimate consumer and thus never truly achieving real health. As the conversation continued to deepen we got to the topic of energies and passions and I told her the story of the holistic medicine doctor who changed my life and how I believe that meeting her was the start of a true ordering of steps in my life centered around women and motherhood.  As she listened she interjected with stories of her own and then she says to me that I bring such a calming spirit to the room and such a positive energy that she can tell that it draws good thing and good people to me. As I laughed thinking of all the knuckle heads I encountered I realized she is right. Since beginning to truly embrace the energy that drives me many things good and bad have manifested themselves and even the bad turned into good life lessons. We began talking about health disparities among women and children based on demographic and that is when she introduced me to http://www.gwhi.org/ the Global Women’s Health Initiative.  This organization has a very simple idea, promote education, resources, choice, and rights among women and children and eventually that culture of health and well-being will spread across the population and the world as women are the roots. I am paraphrasing of course but doesn’t that seem like such a simple but impactful plan? Create a society of healthy women, who teach children to be healthy, give them resources and education on overall health and let them “infect” the communities they live in. I looked at her and just smiled because it was like she was reading my spirit. This woman I have known for five seconds had encouraged me, educated me, forced me to think deeply, engaged me, and challenged me and did it all with a smile. She was having a small issue with her own moral compass regarding some policies and I gave her some tips and at the end she said,” just having someone like you validate my feelings and hear me makes my chest hurt a little less and my anxiety ease some knowing my 30 years of practice has given me good intuition.” Just being able to give her something small back after the amazing gifts she had given me reminded me that as hard as it is to be on the road these connections are pivotal on this walk I’m on and resurged the gratitude I feel for the many women that pour into me on the daily basis. She had me in here speaking pure affirmations over my life and for that I am eternally grateful. I don't know if it was a chance encounter or if it was destined but either way I am humbled by it.  Thank you, Susan, for being the woman, mother, and human being you are. I will never forget you…
