I have never posted to reddit before but I have been struggling lately with a career change. When I was young I knew I wanted to be a DVM and growing up I took every step possible towards making that possible including working as a veterinary technician for the last 4/5 years. But the more I kept working at becoming a DVM the farther the goal began to seem and during the pandemic I started to feel burnt out. This made me start to think of other careers and ideally ones that wouldn’t leave me in debt. That’s when I landed on nursing and while the passion isn’t the same it is still very full-filling and challenging for me which I enjoy. Why not transfer from animals to humans? The deeper into nursing school I get the more I started to wonder if I have made the right choice to make this switch. But recently I had this dream that seemed to clear everything up somehow. After landing a job at a hospital close to me (not in a direct patient care position) I had a crazy dream about being a pediatric nurse that more than anything left me with a HUGE feeling, almost a high? Honestly just a feeling I haven’t felt before that just told me I am doing the right thing and going in the right direction. Has anyone ever experienced this?
Fun side note:
Prior to getting the job I starting seeing the numbers below multiple times a day.
11:11 4:44 2:22 12:34
I am sorta into those types of things so it all just got me thinking 🤷🏾♀️
Thanks for reading!
