I’m the cow…
Pretty much, I pay $$$$$ to get my ass beat (mentally, emotionally, & physically) everyday!
I do not recommend going to grad school if you can find other ways to be successful. However, sometimes we don’t have a choice and additional schooling/credentialing is a necessity to achieve success.
For me, I chose a lifestyle…not just a career. There are many challenges and sacrifices that accompany this lifestyle, but I know I wouldn’t be as happy with my life if I became anything else other than a doctor and a healer.
