Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I’ll be tackling a few recent thoughts of my dream career…
Honestly, I have many, many ideas of what I consider my dream job to be. From a very early age I was what you would might perhaps consider, overly ambitious. Every day I would ‘think up’ a new job from a writer to an artist to even a doctor, and even to this day I dream about what my life might be like if I had these different jobs.
Fast forward a few years to when I’m picking my subjects for college and I choose Psychology almost on a whim! Yet after spending two years studying it, (we really only scratched the surface of it) it led me to question a whole new realm of ideas from the psychology of sleep to the characteristics of different disorders.
This is was it, I finally found my true passion. Psychology. And as cliche as it sounds things just began to fit together a bit better as not only had I found my passion in life, I found several, which is a huge understatement, different career paths which would lead me to it.
Hence, my final answer to that question is yes… and no. As incredibly lucky and grateful as I am to have found something as amazing as Psychology; there are many different paths I could take from clinical, to forensic to even occupational. I want to take my time exploring the complexity and the wide ranging topics that the science offers me, and who knows, maybe I’ll even get to carry out my own scientific research?!
So my advice to those of you looking for your passion would be to explore as much as you possibly can the subjects you’ve been offered. And to take classes/subjects/degrees etc that you’d never dreamed of taking before, because you never know, it could lead you to finding a new interest. Something that may not have happened if you hadn’t stepped out of your comfort zone.
