As I have gone through my week, I have been in deep thought about what I plan to do with my life if I cannot achieve my dream of getting into the field of physical therapy.  I grow in frustration throughout the days because my determination and dedication guide me through difficult obstacles.

Today, I received my 9th rejection from PT schools this year but I am intrepid in my desire to become a physical therapist.  I want to be able to make people become more independent and satisfied with their lives.  As a physical therapy aide currently, I have seen many people recover and improve immensely throughout their treatment.  It is a joy to bring happiness to someone’s life and to provide them the opportunity to achieve their goals.

My plan is to keep trying and to not give up on my dream of getting into physical therapy school.  While I have gotten rejected from so many schools, I still will keep a positive mind as I have three schools still left to hope for.  Never give up, never surrender.

Start of my new journey

Today I have decided to start the next chapter of my life.  I have been struggling the last few years after graduating college on moving towards my full-time career.  I have led a privileged life but I still feel that same amount of depression as I did after I left school.  As of now, I am currently working in my chosen field of physical therapy as an aide for a clinic in my hometown.  I love my job but it has become a toll on my life as I have grown unhappy over time.

My journey begins with my first day of college, I was excited to become independent for the first time in my life.  My parents have been my biggest supporters but I was ready to make my journey my own.  I set off to school with the determination to succeed in my chosen field of physical therapy.  The first few weeks were very hard because I had never been away from my family.  How was I supposed to survive the next four years of college being a long distance from home?

Now, I look back and I am grateful for the four and a half years I spent at my university.  Those years were some of the best in my life.  I graduated almost three years ago from my school and I have worked for most of that time trying to get into graduate school with no success.  Tonight I had a long thought going through my head of my failure in my chosen profession.  The only problem is that I do not want to be labelled as a failure but rather as someone who grows from her experiences.  Back in the day, I used to be a pessimistic person who only saw the “glass half empty” rather than the “glass half full”.

I chose to start this blog to explore my life and keep a positive mindset that I will succeed in my career as a physical therapist.
