How do you #ShareHappiness? From hiking your favorite trails to cooking your favorite meals or spending quality time with loved ones – we want to know what brings you happiness.
We’re kicking off our Share Happiness contest for physicians and advanced practice clinicians and we want to know what makes you happy. All physicians and advanced practice clinicians are eligible to participate by sharing a picture and story of what brings you joy.
The Share Happiness contest will run through October 31, 2019, and by sharing your pictures and stories with us, you’ll be entered to win big prizes from Apple, REI, Target and Amazon.
Please encourage physicians and APCs you work with to enter and share their stories and photo here to be entered to win in 2019! We’ll share all of the entries throughout the month on social media using the hashtag #THShareHappiness!
The 2018 grand prize winner of the #THShareHappiness contest was Saima Rafiq. Her courageous story of love and overcoming obstacles won her a $500 Amazon gift card!
“On December 25, 2017, my 35-year-old husband suffered from a spontaneous carotid dissection which led to a severe stroke, disabling his speech and movement of the right side of his body. He was taken for emergent surgical therapy, where the clot was removed and he regained blood flow to the brain. At that time, I was 34 weeks pregnant with my second daughter. In a split of a second, my entire world crumbled in front of me and I couldn’t do anything as a physician. With the power of prayer, my husband has now fully recovered. He is able to regain all the functions of daily living and I delivered my beautiful daughter on February 2, 2018. My happiness is my family. Life is too short to waste and not appreciate the love and strength that my family provides to me. They are my biggest blessings and I’m so happy to have them in my life every day.”
Another memorable #ShareHappiness story last year came from, Christine Wong, who won a $150 REI gift card for this adventurous submission.
“Being in the mountains brings me great happiness. This is from this past October when I saw the granddaddy of mountain ranges: the Himalayas. I did a 20-day trek along the Everest Three Passes trail, passing through incredible scenery– four of the world’s ten tallest peaks, imposing glaciers, turquoise lakes, and more. It was challenging for sure, but I love that unique feeling of tranquility that stays with you, even after you leave. Minus aging knees, I feel better now than I ever have, mentally and physically. As Sir Edmund Hillary said, “It’s not mountains we conquer, but ourselves.”
We shared all of 2018’s entries throughout the month of October on social media using the hashtag #THShareHappiness. Check out all of the last years’ entries here!
