I was thinking this morning how I am at least half way through my life and, although things have been pretty great up until this point, I really feel that I have much more to do, and much more to offer. My daughter going to high school 18 months ago really started me thinking about what I was going to do with the rest of my life and how I saw my life after she left home and went off to live hers. I’ve worked as a psychologist for the best part of 17 years and it’s been a wonderful career. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it, met wonderful friends and had the most amazing experiences. It also allowed me to work close to home and raise my family and I know that I have been extremely lucky.
However, things are changing. It won’t be long before the children are off but I still feel so young. I am a young woman with lots to offer and so much more still to do. So, after a few months of feeling a bit undecided and very unsettled, I have taken the bull by the horns and have started my own little business. The idea isn’t revolutionary – but it is something that I really enjoy. And I am so looking forward to building my own little empire, realising my own dreams and surprising myself with what I am able to achieve.
I am very excited about 2015 – although pretty terrified too! I’m going to give it a go and see why happens. Not sure who said ‘fortune favours the brave’ but I’m with them. If I don’t try then I’ll never know. And I would rather try and it be a disaster than spend the next 30 years wondering what might have happened if only I’d had the guts to take a chance.
I am going to use this blog to document my journey over the next 12 months as I build my business and give my dreams a chance to come true.
