Trust- Another Magic Lever

By April 20, 2013Advocate, Caregiver, Consumer, Leader

Recently, Joan Vitello, Associate Chief Nurse at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, inspired me talking about ‘trust’ at a nursing leadership seminar. I’ve thought about it every day since. Trust is a magic lever of best health – for e-patients, caregivers, professionals, teams, and organizations. Trust accentuates the possibilities: Trust that I’m OK, however I feel. Trust in my team members – they have best health in their hearts, whatever’s in their minds. Health is a marathon – trust fuels the fire of persistence – keepin’ on. I’m not a religious person, but I’m spiritual. Trust = faith. Having multiple sclerosis I know if I don’t use it, I lose it. Takes many times longer to regain it, if at all. Trust is like that. Lose it and need a recovery plan with help.

I’m in Boston. How many people, even those without a family member directly injured by the bombing, have lost trust in the rightness of the world? My four-year old grandson experiences an iPad video game differently – a little bomb to deal with. He pauses, takes note. A little innocence lost. Trust?
A valuable commodity – trust. May I take care of it wherever.
