I rarely use this blog to talk about personal topics, but every now and then something comes along, which I consider being worthwhile and meaningful.
School is a long 13-year journey. It is your entire childhood and sets you up with the foundations to succeed in adult life. I was blessed to even have an education. In first world countries, it is an opportunity which is taken for granted. Although we continuously try to criticise school, it is incredibly useful, and I thoroughly enjoyed my 13 years of schooling.
That period has now come to an end. Over the past few months, I have gone through a strange transition period. No structure, no timetables, no classrooms, no teachers, no routine. It was a time of COMPLETE freedom (and it was much needed!)
Now a new chapter begins. I now have the opportunity to study what I have wanted to study for the past 3 years. I now can find employment in a field I am interested in. I now have many different resources available to network, join new groups and challenge myself. These are unique opportunities, and I eagerly look forward to what the future may bring.
Change can be scary. As a society, even if we say we like change, it still causes us to feel anxious or nervous. Change will always occur, and it comes down to your response. A positive and accepting response sets up a trajectory of success.
The crazy spree of writing over the past few months may slow down a bit, but I will endeavour to continue writing and sharing my thoughts.
