I spent 25 years working in hospitals. I enjoyed it but it seemed to totally consume my life. There wasn't time to do the things that I enjoy the most. I didn't live extravagantly I had several sources of income at the time. But I wanted to be with my family and in the the ocean surfing.
Some people work and live for that vacation. I was so busy I didn't have time for vacations. Yes by the time I was in my 40s I had gotten my priorities straight. Make the job work for you. I went part time and pulled call on the weekends. I don't like to surf on the weekends or go to the beaches to many people. Yes I have spoiled myself. You will see me on monday morning surfing!
While some may wonder why surfing is more fulfilling that performing surgery and helping people. This is certainly a question I had asked myself for many years. The reason being I believe is because it seemed like a lot of the surgeries that we were doing were not successful and were possibly more harmful in the long run.
Unfortunately this can be backed up by statistical fact these days.
Figuring out my life ment living out in the country or like we say in Hawaii out in the bushes. The green of the jungle seems to agree with my family. The ocean certainly agrees with me here!
Take the time to figure out your life your will thank yourself! Hey it only took me around 50 years!
