I've written a little bit about the nature of change before. It's mostly tiny steps, little things that are not really noticeable as change but, over time, they all add up and before you know it you've changed. It's happened. Every now and then, however, there is one of those points in the process where things are noticeably different.
Today was one of those days. I saw a full day of clients as a provisional psychologist and I felt like I understood how to help them. I have 87 days of uni left (who's counting). I will be a fully registered psychologist as soon after that as the paperwork goes through. My thesis, my last subjects are all on track to be finished. This is as close to being at the other side of change as I've been yet. Engineer/Project Manager to Psychologist is pretty drastic as a change trajectory but I'm nearly there. The light at the end of that very long tunnel is getting very bright.
But best of all I was home in time to take a walk. At sunset. With a camera. I have never before been in a job that would see me home in time to do that. It felt magical. And perhaps that is why it is one of those days when the change is noticeable. It is not only so different to 'before' but it has been a glimpse of what life could be like in the very near future. My life after change. Today it feels so close. Only 87 days away to be exact.
