So, I wanted to be a Registered Dietitian and I enjoy it but do you ever wonder if there’s more? Oh man I do on a a daily basis. I LOVE talking about nutrition but sometimes You can only repeat something 500 times before you want to pull your hair out. I had a student come to me today asking about how he can be a RD. The road isn’t quick or cheap and oftentimes isn’t as financially rewarding as it should be, but I enjoy it. As I was talking to him about his life goals: fitness, nutrition, financial stability, and promotions I realized I’m glad I’m where I’m at. I took my kids to practice today, I cooked dinner, I helped with their homework, and I yelled at the flooded bathroom after bath time. But you know what…I was there! They may not remember crazy mommy after bath time (wishful thinking on my part), but they’ll remember me. Sometimes it takes a student asking about his/her path that makes us realize we’re where God wants us to be. So to that guy today…Thanks!
I may not be the best and my patients may not listen all the time, but when one does it makes a world of difference.
