I turn 34 in 6 days. My gift to myself is knowledge and an eventual career change.
I am now a university student! I am so proud of myself, I have a goofy grin on my face just writing this! I am doing a BSc in Psychology, an actual degree! Me! This is so huge for me. I’ve always felt stupid and I have a habit to silently measure my success against others, minimising my own accomplishments and strengths. The degree is going to take 6 years because I also need to work as well as study. There is the possibility of it taking slightly less time depending on how I manage the time juggle.
My plan is to become a therapist eventually. I will be able to do this on a self employed basis which is preferable as I’m self employed at the moment doing elderly home care.
This is a tentative idea as things can change over time but for now it feels good to have a plan in place and an eventual goal in mind.
