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.
