A NOISY WORLD

When Life is Noisy…I started a FULL-TIME job at a doctor’s office. I am called a “runner” for good reason. I run from 8:00am until 5:00- 5:30pm + depending on the day, with only one half hour break. No sitting, no chairs, on my feet moving at a frantic pace.

How Did I Not Know?

What could I have done differently?Second-guessing myself became a perpetual thought process in the aftermath.
