Hey guys, how has your past week been? Mine has been kind of quiet and possibly too self reflective (if that’s even possible 😉 )
I thought I would write about the CPR course I attended a few weeks ago.
For anyone who has to do a yearly CPR course for their work knows it is the three hours you dread every year; feeling uncomfortable in a room full of strangers, having to find a partner that seems friendly and performing CPR correctly so you can pass, bloody hell.
For this CPR course I decided to go in with a more positive attitude and it worked. Not only was the experience kind of enjoyable and I was able to relearn how to perform CPR correctly I also started thinking: Why is it so important to know CPR? The obvious answer is to save someone’s life, which is actually pretty awesome. If you think about it, there are a lot of people out there valuing others lives, including yours and mine. This is pretty significant if you ask me and really good to remember that your life is so important.
If you are learning CPR, the intention behind it is that you potentially may use it so save someone’s life, meaning that everyone’s life is of extremely high value. Too many people, including myself often don’t really value their lives and see themselves as worthless when ultimately you only have one life and it is as valuable as anyone else’s. This means you should be doing the things your heart desires.
Knowing that your life really does have a lot of value and people are going to courses because they value your life so much should be a good reason to value yourself and those around you.
It’s great to focus on being healthy, career progression and being a good person but it is still equally important to make sure you are happy, having some fun and surrounded with the loveliest of friends who value you as a person.
And for anyone wondering how to do CPR, you should learn! It might not be the best 3 hours of your life but who knows it might come in handy one day or else you might even have some life revelations like me 😉 .
I did the course through The Royal Life Saving Society ,you should check it out if your interested (no they did not pay me to mention their name, although I wish they did) 😉 and remember its 30 chest compression’s to 2 breaths.
Value your life and those around you, even if you don’t understand – know that they are doing the best they can at this time.
I hope you like the fashion choices I made, definitely pretty street if you ask me 🙂
Take care and dare to be seen,
