Change is never easy, the potential for change is never easy! Today as I made another step toward change, I came to the realization that it is not always what I want…nor how I want it. I remembered that you know sometimes it is about how things work together to make up the puzzle. I found out today that I should see my job, my career, or my dreams not in the light that I need to make it to the top in a jump. Instead sometimes you need baby steps and you have to take the steps one small step at a time.
There is a position where I work (well actually two positions) that I would love to have sometime in my life. The first position that I would love to have is to be the psychologist on a college/university campus. In order to do that I would need to finish a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and also successfully complete the licensing exam. The other job I would love to have would be to have the position of being a director of the psychological services on a college campus.
I realize that these two jobs are ones that are going to take time, education, a reputation for doing good and determination. Possible ways to getting there would be to work my way up to being a Division Manager or a Dean…both of these are positions I would love to have one day. So the short version of what I am trying to say is that I am ok with taking small baby steps.
Yet at the same time I hate to leave my current position. I hate going back to being the newbie that does not have a clue what she is doing…but at the same time I realize that sometimes I just need to be patient. God knows right! His will not my will! As I learned in bible study tonight, you have to be patient and willing.
So let us see what change will bring…or if change brings anything at all??
