Hello Lucy, I loved this conversation so much. Thanks for inviting him to explain dharma. The notion of your essence - who you are and what you do is so important. I have really struggled with that since retirement from medical practice, since I feel like I am doing very little (certainly not taking care of babies). Perhaps writing - which helps others heal and grow - will be enough for me. I hope so. Susan

I enjoyed this podcast very much. I will certainly be buying the book. I have things to learn from it, and I think all of my children day they may be getting a copy in their stocking for Christmas. Even though they are all adults.

Good morning!

We do need to find joy in what we do everyday for a living.

With that said, so many people think they need to love it everyday! I’ve been a nurse mostly in the operating room, now I. Dermatology- I LOVE what I do. But there are days that I hate it. Long hours on call, terrible, sad cases. But, I never ruined my health over it. Where is all of the anxiety coming from. Who told them they are anxious?!

My oldest, who is 35 today, says she struggles to find work life balance. She lives with her partner, has no children, no pets. What?!

If she has said it once she has said it a thousand times. What is wrong with putting in 110%, what?

Younger generations are SO afraid they are going to work to hard.

I don’t understand.
