Everyone has their own timeline. Don’t compare your journey to anyone else. At one point I was frustrated because it felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere and everyone else was getting practicums, internships and moving forward with their child life journey.
I was nervous because the field is rapidly growing and I didn’t know if it would get so big, that it would be difficult for me to enter the field. I’m still somewhat nervous about this.
Looking back, everything did happen at the right time for me. I’m sure if things had gone another way it would have worked out too. However this is my story, and no one else’s. Find your own journey and embrace it!
