Is it a mid-life crisis?
I had a conversation this morning with someone who had been in my position until recently. Unhappy in her job. Disillusioned with ‘the system’. She woke up one morning and made the decision to jack it in and follow her heart. It was great to talk. I thought I was the only one …
It is so true. It helps to talk. To find someone who understands what you are going through.
OK may be it is a mid life crisis. It’s a crisis that’s for sure. The good news is I have made my decision. It’s been a long time coming.
I started the journey towards this decision on a cold winter’s weekend in 2018. I’d dragged my sister to an ‘Inner Peace’ retreat (I was too anxious to go by myself) and over two intense days I discovered - well I’ll leave that to another post. But let me just say I discovered I needed to take control of my life in order to find some sort of inner peace because I certainly couldn’t recall the last time I had felt at peace. And the worst part of all was I seemed to be the only one who was in that bad a position.
As I said, I’ll share all my tips, tricks and more of how I got to where I am now, later …
