Fake...Definitively Not!!

Thoughts?? those that don't know, I work in a nursing home as a C.N.A. The other day I overheard a few coworkers questioning and discussing my "happy". It was referred to as fake. I thought to myself how funny. Honestly, I truly don't care how they view me. I simply find it funny that I was a topic of conversation for them. If you know me, then you know I am the same person all day long. I have never felt the need to adjust my personality, nor my thought processes for the next man. Lately, I have come to the realization that there are a plethora of unhappy people in this world; unhappy with themselves, their surroundings, job choices, etc... It is my sincere hope for these people that they learn to view the world as I do. I am far from the being all-knowing, but I do know that WE make our "happy". If it doesn't fulfill you in some way, why do it? I may gripe and complain about the WORK, but I chose this job. Why? Simply because I feel good when I take care of people. Those people can be my family, my friends, or my residents. It took some time to realize who I am as an individual. I am a nurturer. The traits of a nurturer can be many, but what I most readily identify with is "doing things with love". No matter the task, I always put my heart into what I am doing and most often it shows either by my actions or my smile. My "giggly" nature allows me to be happy even in the most depressing surroundings and believe me, a nursing home can be downright depressing. So to those ladies who felt the need to "hate" by expressing their opinion of me in hushed tones, rest assured that I will never be fake for you or any one else. Keep on "hating", I need 5 more to meet my quota. For my residents, don't worry, your "happy" girl will be back to brighten your days on Monday!! To all the rest, be yourselves and be blessed!!!
