Day 3 – Transparency

Mother Teresa is one of my favorite icons of all times and stated “Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.”  She definitely nailed it to the core because, in order for us to be transparent, we must be honest which is not an easy task at times and makes us very vulnerable.  I feel that my patient should know about the care he/she should be getting, the seriousness of his/her condition, and the symptoms that would require immediate attention from the physicians.  I believe transparency is a very important aspect which we forget at times.  As much as I describe myself “realistic” and “open and honest,” I ponder with the thought am I truly forthcoming, open and honest?  Should I be just vulnerable at the most difficult times anyways?

On a happy note, I truly enjoyed the hiking today, though was out of breath for sure.  It was a wonderful gesture from the team for the outdoor activity.  Thank you 🙂
