Is this the pain of growth?

On this day, five years ago...

Interlude: I just went to find out what was happening five years ago.

I'm reviewing my 2014 diary. Woww. Worth mentioning. Not worth elaborating on.

...the only item on my calendar was a workout of the week session at the gym. I was job hunting at the time. I would start my masters degree a month later. I would not find a job until two months after that.

I had useless qualifications, experience in an industry that had burned me out, and I was in recovery from a psychotic break.

I would go on to get my masters (scoring a Dean's award in that time), build a community of student entrepreneurs, launch an innovation hub, and work for myself.

There was a lot of pain in that time. There was another burn out. There was a break up. There were ten job changes and three career shifts. There were six relocations.

But in that time, I grew.

And, now, when I experience pain, I think to myself: is this the pain of growth? Because that's ok. That means I'm going somewhere.

If I can handle this, imagine where I might be five years from now.
