The Rule of Tears says: follow what brings a rush of emotion to you, perhaps not totally explainable why it makes you feel this way–something that brings tears to your eyes.
I just want to thank you for so eloquently putting this rule into words.
I knew that becoming a DO was right for me last year when I imagined myself at my whitecoat ceremony with my husband and children in the crowd watching me walking up to get my coat.
Damn, I’m getting teary even as I type this…
There have been other comparable moments in my life but nothing career-related. THIS is my calling, I am sure…and the rule of tears helped me to realize this!
