    Love this. I have to remind myself often that the hospital will run without me. Although, my department has had an understaffing issue for a while now, so it is difficult to take time off without feeling some twinge of guilt.

      I understand that completely. But you are correct they will run without you! and at the end of the day you’re not responsible for the department. You are responsible for you! and the more you take care of you, the more you can help them out too! Thank you for reading!

    These are very good points. We all need to take opportunities and make the time to travel. I used to travel more, but have been slacking in recent years. I’ll have to make it a priority!

    I agree with all points, especially #5. I’ve been to a few countries but unfortunately nowhere out of the country in the last few years:( sad but comes with the mommy territory. My little guy’s about to turn 4 so hopefully things will change soon. But, yes when I was in residency I committed to traveling abroad whenever I had a week off so went away every year (UK, Peru, Uganda, Italy) and it was fabulous! It definitely helped take away the residency slump and when I got back was recharged.

      The trips you went on sound awesome! I’ve got a couple of those spots on my own list. But abroad isn’t the only place to go. Not sure if this helps you but There are places stateside that are so culturally different too! Maybe just a long weekend will help you refresh and will be easier with a young one? Regardless, wishing you all the best in your future travels!

    Traveling actually makes us all better people! We learn to appreciate what we have and we learn to accept other cultures by experiencing them. Even if going to a different part of our country, it takes us out of our comfort zones.

      Agreed! So important to see what’s out there and experience the differences!
