Here is a story about a man who lost three limbs and still built a beautiful and meaningful life for himself as a hospice physician.  I was struck most by his own challenge to find that balance between serving others and savoring his own life. As he says, “The lessons I get from my patients and their families, and from this work,” Miller said, “is to enjoy this big, huge, mystical, crazy, beautiful, wacky world. And I’m too often not doing that. That can feel distressing to me.”
