Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
This chapter shares a personal journey; one that has hit lots of bumpy roads along the way. But in the words of singer-songwriter Florence Welch I have managed to "keep following the heartlines on my hand". It took ten years since gaining my Ph.D. to get a continuing role in academia - and I love it! There have however, been many challenges in getting there, but now that I am there I am beginning to realise that there are many more challenges to come. This chapter draws on the theoretical frameworks of professional socialisation and reflection in attempting to highlight both the process and the outcomes achieved in academia. Becoming socialised into an academic profession is not easy but, as a reflective professional who can focus on positivity and confidence in oneself, it can be very fulfilling.
