Nurses Dance With Little Cancer Patient To Brighten Her Day
1. “I didn’t even hit you that hard!”, “Shh, I’m sorry, don’t tell mom, okay?” Or my personal favourite, “Here, you can hit me!”
2. Just slapping your sibling because they’re there
3. Hating someone with a passion yet deep down you are still willing to drop everything for them.
4. I once got asked “What’s it like having a sister?” right in front of my sister and I said “Imagine the person you hate most in the world. Now imagine being obligated to love them.”
She didn’t disagree.
5. How one moment you hate them with every inch of your being and the next carrying on like nothing happened.
6. Oldest gets Mario, yongest gets Luigi.
7. When me and my brother were kids everything had to be equally shared. Especially food.
To the point where we put the glasses side by side to get exact the same amount of juice for each one. I recall one time we counted the amount of Pringles chips and split in two equally amounts. The crumbles and broken chips went to parents of course.
Happiness—”it’s what we all strive to find and keep, even when it’s as elusive as ever. Nobody is jolly and elated all the time, but some individuals are definitely more fulfilled than others. Studies reveal that happiness has little to do with materialistic needs, goods, or wants, or high achievement; it boils down to your outlook on life, the quality of your relationships, and basic amenities like good governance and community resources.
1. Be optimistic
In the 1970s, researchers followed people who’d won the lottery and found that a year afterward, they were no happier than people who didn’t. This hedonic adaptation suggests that we each have a baseline level of happiness. No matter what happens, good or bad, the effect on our happiness is temporary, and we tend to revert to our baseline level. Some people have a higher baseline happiness level than others, and that is due in part to genetics, but it’s also largely influenced by how you think.
- Add up all the little joyful things that happen to you during the day. For example, there was no traffic on the road, you had a very decent and scrumptious breakfast, your friend said something uproariously humorous that made you laugh, you took your dog out for a walk in the park and played with it. All of these matters added together
While many people’s first instinct after hearing a cancer diagnosis is to fight, others choose to forgo the treatments and make the most of their time rather than spending their last months in a stuffy hospital being poked and prodded by doctors and nurses.
Just two days after her husband of 67 years, Leo, passed away in July, this 90-year-old woman from Michigan named Norma was dealing with her own health crisis. Doctors found a large cancerous mass on her uterus, which would require surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Instead of resigning herself to months of brutal treatments, which her five-foot, 101-pound frame would likely not survive, she boldly announced to the doctor that she would be ‘hitting the road’ instead. “We explained to the well-meaning doctor and his student that we live in an RV and that we will be taking her wherever she wants to go,” Norma’s son Tim wrote in a post to Facebook. “He didn’t hesitate to say, “RIGHT ON!” We asked if he thought us irresponsible for this approach. His reply was telling.”

“As doctors,” he said, “we see what cancer treatment looks like every day. ICU, nursing homes, awful side effects and honestly, there is no guarantee she will survive the initial surgery to remove the mass. You are doing exactly what I would want to do in this situation. Have a fantastic trip!”
1. I was 34, with few skills, 3 young children, and just finalizing a divorce, when I was discussing what to do with my future. My friend suggested that I return to school, possibly to study my new found passion for geology. My response was, “yeah, but I’ll be 40 by the time I graduate.” Her life changing response; You’ll be 40 anyway.”
Now I am 42, and 3 semesters away from completing my 3rd (and last) degree.
2. “Dоn’t ever make fun of some who speaks brоken English, it means they speak аnother language.”
3. As a teenager I started pouting after a coach yelled at me. He looked at me said “the time to worry is when I quit yelling at you because that means I’ve decided you’re not worth the effort”.
