The Gift of Contrast
I’ll never forget the day this picture was drawn for me. One of the most difficult cases we’ve EVER had, at PWC, drew it for me during a ROF with her mom. I remember thinking that I would keep it forever as I never wanted to lose touch with what it represented.
That day mom told me how she felt the world saw her daughter and what she KNEW about her daughter.
K sat there drawing and chiming in to tell me how drawing helped her feel calm and happy, reciting names of animals and creatures she dreamt up to draw.
Providing care for K was a challenge. She needed a lot of care for a long time. Sometimes she needed special accommodations in the office, she’d physically refuse to come in from the car. If her PANDAS started to flare she would regress with a huge pendulum swing. She’d say things no little girl would ever want or intend to say. She was mean, really mean, and sometimes physical. It was difficult to watch her experience these things. Chiropractic was astoundingly helpful for her. To this day her progress and miracles under chiropractic care Blow. My. Mind.
K provided us with something that was such a gift. CONTRAST.
Our whole team had to work for her wins. We had to be the best freaking versions of ourselves because THAT IS WHAT HER CASE DEMANDED. See, there just can’t be any half-ass in this gig! They need and demand of us that we be ALL IN, ON OUR GAME AND WILLING TO DO THE WORK.
I keep this drawing as a reminder that it’s easy to love the easy ones….heck we all love when we get those early and frequent wins. But we and our teams NEED TO SHOW UP just as ready and excited about the hard ones!
Who’s down to be ALL IN, TOP OF YOUR GAME AND DOING THE DANG THING EVERYDAY? Let’s GO!
