I woke up this morning and the first message I read was from Mariam Lakdawala. It brought a smile to my face as there couldn’t have been a more #positive start for this #NewYear!
One of our old patients had shared with us that she had finally been able to conceive after a long struggle. 3 years ago, we had performed bariatricsurgery with this goal in mind and her wish had finally come true.
As doctors, we also need some inspiration and motivation from time to time. I am extremely thankful to her for sharing this wonderful news with us and it is our privilege to be able to play a small part in her journey.
And so, here I am, smiling to myself on this New Year morning, feeling happy and positive! A little satisfied that what we do, helps someone and has the power to bring joy to them in so many different ways.
Life may not be easy and all of us face many struggles in our daily lives. All we need is a helping hand some times. In my mind, a little bit of understanding, a little patience and loads of love is the perfect recipe for the coming year!
And that brings me to our New Year Resolution- To help and to heal as much as we can in every way possible!
So wishing everyone a super duper New Year! Happy 2021!
