Beginnings are typically an adjustment period, and rarely is it possible to start something new and challenging unnerved. The past few weeks have been the beginnings of my career as a practicing clinical dietitian. During the first few days on the job, I almost felt as if I were playing dress up and at any moment someone was going to tell me "game over". It has been a long and grueling road to finally get to the place where I currently am, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a practicing clinician in an influential and respectable environment. I know that the days will get easier, and I will be rewarded knowing that I had a positive impact on a patient’s recovery.
My family and friends have been extremely encouraging and supportive during this transitional time and have been supplying me with "pearls of motivational wisdom". When faced with difficult situations that test our determination, drive, and sustainability, it is essential to know that it is these challenges that help shape us into stronger versions of ourselves.
For now, while the intensity of newness persists, I continue to find relaxation in the comfort and security of my kitchen
