I recently found the image below on pinterest.

It was so simple but the words rang so true for me.
Recently I went through a stage where I lost a lot of my drive and motivation for nutrition and dietetics. I was so overwhelmed with everything going on that I felt like my rotations were becoming more of a chore and burden than experiences I had previously loved. I had moved to a new state, was trying to get acquainted with a city MUCH bigger than I am used to and I felt like I was at a standstill. I was just so ready to get out into the workforce and start sharing my passion for health and nutrition that I felt suffocated by the internship and all it involved. I even stopped blogging for about a 6 weeks. Thankfully, this period passed pretty quickly. I now can see the end in sight and am so
excited to get through these last couple of months and enter the working world.
During this slump I started reflecting on what had made me choose dietetics as my career path. I started thinking back to what made me love the field I immersed myself in, events I had attended and people I have met along the way to becoming an RD and their outlook on our mutual interest in health and nutrition. Then it struck me: they were all passionate about what they did for a living. They are aware of the need and have the driving passion to help people every day. Connecting with these individuals reinforced my own passion for dietetics and reassured me that I am where I want to be.
I know there is a need in health care for dietitians, I see
this need and have the passion to accompany it. I am so thankful that I have found a career I am, infact, passionate about.
