    Dear Tammy-
    I just wanted to echo point number 10 of your link number 6 (that’s a mouth full!). I’ve made lots of changes over the last few years (leaving a career I hated to come to medical school). I’ve also been continually shedding possessions during that time. I started with a 3 bedroom house crammed to the hilt with stuff (you could hardly walk in one of the bedrooms – clothes piled on the bed, boxes of extra china on the floor). I still have an embarrassing amount of stuff, but it’s MUCH better than it was. My goal is for my possessions to not dictate where I consider residency programs (applications occur in just 6 months – think tiny apartments in large cities).
    Your writing has been a huge inspiration for me through all of this. I checked out your book from my local library and devoured it. I have followed your blog for a long time. When I start to feel like my life is getting off track, I often re-read some of your old blog posts for inspiration (and they never fail to deliver!). Thank you for all that you do – you do make more difference than you’ll ever know! As soon as I have an income again, I’ll definitely support you on Patron. Until then, I’m eternally grateful how much you share on your blog and via email. Thank you – and happy weekend!
