Tomorrow I turn 60, which is a privilege. As a physician, I’ve seen too much sadness to take birthdays for granted or overlook lessons learned after six decades on Earth.
Too many of us waste time pursuing fortune, praise, and other fleeting rewards. It’s far better to nurture relationships, which is why I cherish spending time with Heide and the girls, the rest of my family, friends, patients, colleagues, and trainees.
My happiness depends on the support of others, and whatever meaning I glean from life depends on giving back.
It’s a blessing to share these precious days with you. Thank you for helping me learn this foundational lesson.
