I am a Radical!

I’m not feeling too good today. Yet again, I’ve been told I can’t … Whatever it is I can’t do, or at least I am not allowed to do because I’m marching out of step. It made me recall the School for Health and Care Radicals. I joined in 2014.

There were several modules but this slide deck below is a summary.

 

Yup, that’s me. From the Philippines! I see myself as a change agent.

Let me talk myself through some slides from this deck. I need some encouragement!

I say this often – I like trying new things! But there are those who don’t understand.

I find myself praying for serenity –

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

How I long to share this slide!!! Yesterday was another version of power through hierarchy. And I had no choice but to comply.

I was debating on whether to use rebel or radical in the title of this post, and decided on the latter. That’s me – I don’t wait for permission to lead, innovate and strategise. It has gotten me into trouble a few times.

Maybe there’s a reason, I call myself Witch! I’ve no intention of being burned at the stake though.

I didn’t know that Gandhi said this, but wow!

And suddenly I remember Erma Bombeck.

Dreams have only one owner at a time. That’s why dreamers are lonely.

Aha! I do have something to look forward to. I’m going to Doctors 2.0! I will meet other change agents there. I will share my dreams.

Erma also said –

If you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it.

So friends, do not fear for my sanity when you see me laughing a lot. In the meantime, here’s what I’ll be doing.
