With three days of field under my belt, I have already rallied through a whirlwind of experiences. For those of you just starting or continuing a field placement, I would like to share a few words from a very wise field instructor who spoke of this interesting concept of “being comfortable with the uncomfortable”. I would consider myself a fairly comfortable in her own shoes kind of gal but field is a whole new ballpark of discomforts. As I completed my first full week of field last week I was flooded with information, emotions and experiences tying into what I’m learning in class and experiencing in life. I had a key realization that this calm, cool, collected and confident student was going to be put to the test and undoubtedly will be presented with a variety of uncomfortable situations that come in all shapes, sizes, colors and personalities. While enduring these uncomfortable situations and practicing a bit of humility, my field instructor gave me another great tip; when in doubt, play the student card. We’re not expected to be the experts quite yet. I commend all of us out there in the field for stepping out of our comfort zones.
