Oh how I’ve missed you (whomever you are… if there are any of “you” actually reading this). I’ve made it a point to write as if I have a huge -read: more than just me- audience of people who truly enjoy my writing.
I’ve had a busy year. August 2015 was the last time I wrote on this blog apparently? Since then, I’ve gotten engaged, married, and now we are expecting our first child! I started a new job, moved to another state, passed a very important board exam, got a few more certifications, had a medical issue requiring my first hospital stay- I’m supposed to be the doctor, not the patient (I survived, thank you very much!), traveled to Aruba, Dubai, Mexico, Chicago, NC, SC, VA, maybe a few other places (I take lots of photos because otherwise I forget what I’ve done and seen) and am settling into life.
As driven as I am, a constant and apparently repetitive theme seems to be that I often am required to slow down. I say required because, as far as I am concerned life is to be enjoyed and lived actively and fully. And every few years or so, some life circumstance happens and I have to “hold my horses” and manage my expectations to allow for a more human me. More human, less superSHEro… I am a good SuperSHEro though, if I do say so myself.
For the past month I have been “taking it easy” which isn’t easy at all. My most natural and normal state is to be running, dancing, laughing, driving on mini-road trips, working, writing, reading, staying up late to be on call, sleeping well on the other nights… But now, I am taking life a little slower and focusing on the miracle I’ve been assigned and blessed to protect and nourish.
Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I’m off to read a good book and rest in my hammock.
Later Beaus and Beauties,
