As women physicians
All about me - your future coach : )
Sunny Smith MD
Clinical Professor, Family Medicine and Public Health University of California San Diego School of Medicine
That's the CV part. I'm legit. Really. I know it's the internet and you can't really trust what you read or see or know who is on the other side.
Let me reassure you. You can look me up on google, facebook, pubmed, etc.
You'll find I'm Co-Medical Director of the UCSD Student-run Free Clinic Project, Academic Community Director UC San Diego School of Medicine. You'll see I've won many awards from our med students for teaching, humanism in medicine, etc. If I'm known as being kind, caring, humanistic and a good teacher for our students, chances are I might be pretty kind, caring, and humanistic in talking with you.
I'm not charging you anything for your initial coaching session or expecting anything in return. You don't have to feel awkward at all. You can refer your friends too. I love doing it. I really think it's transformative work.
If you find the coaching helpful and want to have additional sessions or want to come on our retreat, then of course we'll discuss the cost structure for those things. The Four Seasons Bora Bora is one of the top luxury retreats in the world, so of course the retreat comes with a fee.
Facebook life versus real life
This collage reminds me so much of how our minds can choose to see the very same circumstances of our lives in VERY different ways. It all depends where we choose to put our focus.
My recent vacation to Hawaii with my family represents the kind of work we do in coaching.
The facts: My family went to Hawaii
My unintentional thoughts, feelings, actions, results: Ugh, it was terrible. My kid cried nearly the whole time. I felt irritatable, acted crabby toward my husband, and the trip sucked.
BUT - using my coaching mindset -
I knew I could purposely choose to think different thoughts when I was feeling frustrated and irritable. I worked on thinking - I am so lucky I got to go to Hawaii with my beautiful family. This is amazing. (Sure my kid cried but it was no big deal) Then I felt so much gratitude, I acted appreciative and loving, and our family was so happy to have a great relaxing trip.
Which thoughts served me better?
That's way over simplified, but...if I'm looking to create the life of my dreams, we start first by NOTICING our thoughts, then choosing thoughts that serve us, then taking actions to create the lives we truly want.
Where, uh, yeah, again, my kid cried a TON.
But you know what?
You only turn 40 once, and I was absolutely determined to have the time of my life. And I did.
It was truly paradise and every day I was there I just couldn't believe it was real. I felt so incredibly fortunate.
So much so that I made it a life goal to go back and make it even bigger & better than before!
Instead of just bringing my family this time, I plan to take a whole crew of like minded women physicians with me and we are going to make this an amazing inspiring retreat!
Family, fun, & sun
Did I mention I'm a woman physician? : )
Look at that oustanding sun protection while we were on that Hawaii trip mentioned above.
My friends think I dress him like a moon man.
I think it's my job to keep him safe, without sunburns, and cancer free.
Those thoughts make me feel like I'm a good mom and I can easily enjoy our vacations without ever having to worry.
See? Thought work. Always so helpful!
