I’m on month #5 of my physician life coaching Eat. Pray. Love. Journey. My travels have been to Lawrenceville, IL, Evansville, French Lick and Indianapolis so far instead of Rome, India or Bali but it has still been an adventure.
I never really saw myself as a “Non-traditionalist” or “Unorthodox” but actually, after much introspection…I am. The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost has always been my favorite poem. I love a good girl rocker against the establishment hit. I feel best leading the pack, kickin’ ass and takin’ names. I tend to hang out at the far side of the academic curve, be a quick start and feel all the feels. I do tend to go against the flow. Why could I not see this about myself years ago!?!
Much of my twenties was about trying to fall into line. Do the responsible adulting expectations stuff. I dressed like what I thought a female physician should dress like. I spoke how I thought a professional woman should speak. I went to church because that’s what good people do. When it came down to it, it never really felt right.
The last 4 1/2 years, I’ve started tuning into circumstances that ‘just didn’t feel right’ and instead of putting up with it or sticking with it, I pivot. Wearing stuffy medical shoes, nope. Censoring my language, hell no! Doing events out of obligation rather than compulsion, not no more. I can say without a doubt, I am now more myself. Unapologetically me.
Crazy. Maybe I’m crazy. Or wrong. Maybe I’m totally wrong. But if loving my life/myself is wrong, then I don’t want to be right :)
Next Sunday is Part 2 of my Eat. Pray. Love. Journey. I’ll talk about my scale of “total and utter bliss” being an entrepreneur to “absolutely scared shitless”
