This time last year I was out of my mind busy.
This week, I am just as busy.
However, there is a vast difference between my headspace then and now. I have a renewed sense of enthusiasm. I have a new feeling of ownership over my career.
One of my greatest fears was that I had locked myself in this situation where I had become unhappy. I was kicking myself for the decisions I made as a 17 year old. How could I not know that the satisfaction and pride I felt for my work would fade 6 years down the track?
I am not the first and I will not be the last person to find themselves at this crossroad. It was not an easy decision to make- but to anyone thinking about making this same decision, I’d say this… There is only one way to find out! I can’t say things will work out the way you envisaged – but one sure way to grab hold of something you want is to let go of what you don’t.
My days are now made up of working with like-minded people. My words are used encouraging others. I am constantly looking for ways to inspire. I am a guide to young people in making wise and responsible decisions. My hands are covered in colour and earthy clay.
Next years plans are not set in stone. This time last year I would be worried sick. This time around I have faith in myself to make something out of nothing. I am prepared to make another detour, but in this moment, I’ll enjoy where I am.
