I started this blog back in March 2013 as a result of 2 big life events: turning 45 and hitting what felt like the halfway point of my life and leaving employment to develop my own business. Since I left college at 18, I’d been an employee, pretty much always full time. I started the blog as an attempt at keeping perspective, so I don’t talk about my business here. What I do focus on is making sure I’m giving other things in my life the same priority as my work. So this is a celebration and exploration of the other things that make my life great, and a reminder to stay in the moment and enjoy life as it passes, rather than always be looking ahead to the next challenge.
The blog was originally called ‘2013: The Year of Being Me’: for 2014 I changed that to the ‘Year of Discovery’; and in 2015 it’s the ‘Year of Ease’. I’ve worked very hard to get my business off the ground, and am aiming this year to be slightly less driven and more open to serendipity and unexpected opportunity.
Please leave a comment if you’re going through a similar process – I’d love to hear from you!
