    It is such a wonderful discovery to realize it is a myth… being able to “do it all”, without paying a huge price. Of course this is true in all areas of life, and your solution- finding a niche is so heart warming and sane. Thanks Elizabeth.

      Glad you enjoyed the video, Padma. And you are right… it DOES ring true in all aspects of life. Thank you for pointing that out. Enjoy the week!

    Great!!! ❤️ The ‘super nurse’ complex continues even for those of us in the field a long time AND when we get away from the clinic. Thank you for speaking this truth- wish I had it when I was a newbie-could’ve saved me a lot of agony. I’m listening now though-creating my own special role
