I’ve never felt so nervous about a first day of classes since my younger days. This week, I started at Waterford Institute of Technology. I will be working on my masters in sports psychology throughout the next year and it still amazes me how I’ve come to this point in my journey.
I just graduated from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, with a degree in athletic therapy. My original plan was to continue on with my masters and become a physical therapist. Physical therapy and sports psychology are very different as you can imagine and that can explain to you why I was so nervous to start here. I was unsure how this would fit into my “plan” in becoming a physical therapist.
After classes this first week, I couldn’t be more excited about the year! Sports psychology is so much more than what people assume and I’m very interested in this area now. Who knows, my future career may very well include being a sports psychologist instead of a physical therapist. It’s times like this that remind me of my belief that everything happens for a reason and only God knows what the true plan is for our future. Of course we can try to map out what we want to do and where we want to go next, but life has a funny way of throwing in high hills and low valleys and big twists and sharp turns into the mix. I look forward to seeing what direction this opportunity takes me next.
Thank you Waterford Institute of Technology!
