Most people will never be outstanding in their fields (male or female), they will never make a mark on the history pages or even the financial pages, they will never do anything outstanding or even notable in their careers. That's just the way it is. Paying attention to more basic needs meets a hunger that does last a lifetime even if it doesn't reach a million people.
Nobody ever whined about missing a few meetings or promotions on their death beds but a lot have whined about neglecting their families and friends. ;)
Like anyone else, work can absolutely exhaust me and get on my nerves...but I honestly can't see myself not doing it. I always wanted to retire at 50, and still might consider it, but I have no idea what else I would do. Travelling the world is nice...when it's a vacation, not for me as a lifestyle.
I'm considerably older than you, so I probably had much more freedom during the summer; I left the house after breakfast and wasn't home again until dinnertime.
My mother also worked full time. She was a teacher, my father was a college professor, and we all had nice long summers, including a house at the beach for six weeks or so every year.
