|Everything Happens for a Reason
By Super CA Lynne
Greetings Super CA's:
Everything happens for a reason... everything happens for a reason... everything happens for a reason... everything happens for a reason... do you think if we keep saying it enough to our patients they will ever truly believe it?
When a new patient comes to our offices they are there for a reason. Pain; someone told them to come; inquisitiveness; looking for a renewed quality of life (don't you just love these kinds of patients). There is always a deeper reason that they come to us and they don't even know it until much later.
How do I know everything happens for a reason? I am a Super CA because everything happens for a reason!
In December of 1991 I hurt my back at work. I was devastated. I had been working at that particular place since 1980. I loved my job and thought I would be there forever. I had been a chiropractic patient since 1988 when I had a neck injury from a baseball accident and I couldn't believe that I was injured again. But as I now know there was a life changing reason for it. It brought me to where I am today.
That injury cleared up a lot of things for me. I was home for almost 3 years, due to the injury, with a small child living in an unhappy marriage. The time off work made me realize that I wanted more out of life. I can remember back to my first chiropractic adjustment in 1988 when I knew something in my life had changed and that I wanted to be more than a chiropractic patient, I wanted to be a bigger part. My back injury provided me with the chance to do that. I was unable to return to my job and went to school for administrative training. When I look back now everything I learned in my course really has nothing to do with what I do now but it got me the interview in my chiropractic office.
I can still remember when I got the phone call asking me if I would like the job. You would have thought I had just found the 30 million dollar lottery ticket that was just turned in yesterday after almost a year.
The funny thing was that I didn't even care that I would be making over $5.00 less an hour than the job I had previously. I was so excited to be a part of Chiropractic that I would have taken the job for no pay and still would to this day. The biggest reward I receive everyday is knowing that my life has changed because of a Chiropractic adjustment and knowing that I am taking part, just as you are Super CA, in changing the lives of so many. Yes, everything does happen for a reason... and next time your patient's question how this could have happened to them be sure to let them know not to question why but just to sit back and see the amazing life that will be set before them once they get reconnected.
I love you because you love what I love...loving...serving...giving
Chiropractic is Life!!!
