My first ever long post 🤷
During my internship, I got asked all the time where I go to college. It was just assumed that I was enrolled since I was doing an internship and when I had to tell people that I wasn't, I always felt unaccomplished and insufficient. It wasn't until after I explained to people that I received my training certification 3 years ago and have been working in the industry ever since, and that I am doing this internship as a learning experience and a way to better myself as a coach, that people thought it was actually super cool and inspiring and not insufficient at all. In fact they complimented my bravery to uproot, and my dedication to grow and learn in this field. I soon started to become inspired to keep learning in my own way and no longer saw myself as insufficient. I am so happy that I took the risk that I never would have done a couple years ago. I have grown so much in the past three months and am proud of myself for going out on a limb. It was completely worth it and in the end as I gained knowledge, mentors, and experience.
Since I've been back people have said to be that they wish they could go do something like that, and I just tell them, "you can!" What is stopping you?? Take a risk. If there is something you are passionate about why are you not investing your time, money and heart into it? I never want to regret not jumping on an opportunity. I hope I can inspire others to the things that might scare them a little, but is truly their dream.
I am just so very greatful for the experience and can't wait to see what happens next for me.
