352: Badass Spotlight Liz Pearce MD
How do you want to feel every morning when you wake up? If you think light and full of energy, then you’re in good company. Liz Pearce joins me to chat about why she loves the word buoyancy and what it’s like being retired from her practice.
Burnout hit her like a ton of bricks. It took her taking time away and really digging deep to realize that she wasn’t living a life aligned with her values. After doing the work, she realized that she could figure a way out of medicine and that she needed to.
The things that have gotten you here aren’t necessarily bad things because they helped you get to where you’re at. But if those things are no longer serving you, give yourself permission to bless and release them.
One of the things that really helped her envision herself after burnout was imagining her favorite place, which is the water. She kept imagining the buoy and how it just bobs up and down and it perseveres. Then she realized that’s how she felt when she was younger.
She felt buoyant and that was her dream.
Now it’s her reality.
Listen in to hear her story and why she’s so happy with where her journey has taken her.
