When one door closes…

Counselor's Personal Log:

So I've become one of the rank and file. Truthfully, my heart and my head haven't been focused on leading the department in a while. I'm not sure exactly why that is, but ever since my conversation with Feyth about motherhood and what I want for my future, I've been distracted, wistful, and even a little bit sad. I guess it just hit me that I've spent so much of my life trying to achieve in my career, I never made time for much else, and now all I can seem to think about is what I'm missing.

Don't get me wrong, I love my job as a physician and a therapist, but for a good while, I have also been an administrator, which has always taken me away from my clinical duties to some degree. I realize someone has to take the reins and complete the duty roster's and make the personnel decisions and I also respect that my climb up the ladder was an indication of people's faith in me, but I also know a title and a rank don't exactly make me unique and won't engender warm feelings when people read them on my tombstone.

What I want is to help people, and as long as I am allowed to do that, I will be happy.

As for what comes next for Tate Sullivan the woman, that is a conversation for another day.
