If you have a copy of the vaccine card, carry it with you. If you sent it in, and they don’t have it, their tracking system is the problem. They could also call the facility where you received your shot to verify it.
I did janitorial work for three years part time, and seven years full time. I found it to be rewarding. It feels great to transform an area from messy and depressing to something pleasant.
When was the last time you took notice of any positive thing about yourself? For example, “I can do a good job here,” or “I am being reliable.” How about “I actually put up with that person’s verbal nonsense without losing my cool.”
That’s true only if you keep convincing yourself of it. Remind yourself, “How I react to things is my choice, and I choose to be peaceful inside.”
No one is normal. It’s just that a lot of people hide any appearance of being different. Because of that, they mask their true thoughts and are fearful of being “found out.”
You aren’t broken. You’re different, just as I am. Years ago, I came to realize that when I dressed really well, my mood became very mellow, and I was more articulate. I also had a relaxed sense of humor.
So, I had to ask myself, “do the clothes actually make the man?” Well, you have some wool or cotton/polyester material, maybe a nice belt and tie… how does that change brain chemistry and function?
All those improved behaviors were already part of me before I put the clothes on. However, the clothes affected my self image, which brought out those desirable attitudes and behaviors.
I remember an episode of the “Dog Whisperer,” where he had a very timid dog, so anxious it was always cringing. He lifted the dog’s head, and pulled his tail from between his legs and held it straight up, and actually managed to walk the dog while holding him in that stature. Incredibly, as this went on for a while, the dog became more confident and stopped cringing with his tail between his legs. The dog’s body language, regardless of it being forced on him, signaled the brain to feel the confidence that body language conveyed.
The point is, we can convince ourselves that we’re really messed up, and act accordingly. We can also stand tall, which helps us feel empowered. We can take good care of our bodies, which signals to the self and others a measure of self-respect. We can imagine that all the negative things we’ve said about ourselves have just poofed away in a cloud of smoke.
Sometimes we have to imagine the truth until we become aware of how real it is. You are a good person! If you’re not convinced that it’s true, just imagine that you are truly decent. Walk and talk as though you know this about yourself.
One day, you’ll realize, “wow! I’m really just being me, and it’s a good thing!”
