I am so proud of #SMOCK! Simple Moments of Contagious Kindness
I have never been so proud of a movement as I am over The Doctors TV show’s #SMOCK campaign. As a physician, I am constantly overwhelmed with offers to indorse certain products, sell certain items, and to generally just put my smile of support on things. With each and every offer, I hesitate, scrunch my face up, and come up with a zillion questions about it and why I don’t want to do it. ‘It feels funny…where did this drug come from? What type of research went into it? Is this vaccine necessary? Is this the data they just want me to see, what about the hidden data? Is there anything harmful in the product? etc etc.’ I took the hippocratic oath, I come from a close loving family, and each day I present myself to the public, I pray that I ‘do no harm.’ So it’s complicated!!!
But what I can finally say is this, I can, with all my mind, body, and soul promote a campaign without any fear that I am promoting something that might be harmful in anyway. That campaign is our #SMOCK campaign. I live my life each and every day #smocking my loved ones, strangers, and acquaintances, and I can emphatically say, what I have put into the universe comes back to me a zillion-fold. I surround myself with fellow #SMOCKers, haters get left behind. Kindness is contagious and I want to give and receive as much of it as is humanly possible. So pass it on and pay it forward. #SMOCK as many people as you can. Let them know they’ve been #SMOCKed and encourage them to pay it forward. Smile while you do it. Post it on your favorite social media site or just savor the moment.
