Three good things

Holiday season. We are stuck in traffic at a standstill on the A303. Grey cloud and rain. Kids bickering in the back. “Daft Punk”, our holiday music, blaring from the speakers in defiance of it all. We will enjoy this holiday… Holiday season. We are stuck in traffic at a standstill on the A303. Grey cloud and rain. Kids bickering in the back. “Daft Punk”, our holiday music, blaring from the speakers in defiance of it all. We will enjoy this holiday…

And then, a pause. The rain and noise stops. I notice the summer meadow flowers flourishing around the steel railings in the central reservation. Yellow and red, glinting in the sunlight – beautiful. A small moment of intense joy and pleasure. I feel happy and savour it. I promise myself to do this more.

Going on holiday is often a time of reflection. A respite from our hectic plugged-in lives. A time for optimistic, well-intentioned resolutions.

  • “I will eat more healthily”.
  • “I will exercise more”.
  • “I will read one book a month”.

"I am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB Locum Chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area. NASGP chair Dr Richard Fieldhouse and Membership Support Manager Ali Lewis's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. NASGP also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
