“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.” ~Carlos Castaneda

I'm tired .....

“Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
~Albert Einstein

To all that have continued to check my blog, thank you for continuing to visit. Things should be slowing down (I hope), so I should be able to more consistently post. As a resident, I remember thinking that my attendings had it easy. We would do the grunt work and they would just come down to the OR or Clinic after they were done drinking coffee in their office. Sometimes, I wish that was the case. The past 3 weeks have been particularly brutal. It is the main reason for the dearth of posts. Over the past few weeks, we have been unseasonably busy. We are still getting a lot of trauma and the elective load has been steady. What wears you down is not one day, it is the accumulation over time. I am recharging and getting be back on my game.

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
~Steve Jobs

Rest. Feel better. Someone wise once told me that. :)

Seriously, welcome back!

Yes, that chronic wearing down accumulates until you begin to feel just bone weary, and all you long for is quiet respite in peaceful slumber.

I love that quote by Steve Jobs. I've made a copy of it, and am going to print that out. It's going up on my desk tomorrow.;)
