I just turned 30.
It's no big deal, really. As my wise grandmother once said in response to my other gran bemoaning their advancing years: "I prefer ageing to the other option". Give me life while there is life to be had!
But a milestone birthday has made me think about my life, and what I do with it.
Over the past six or so years I have embraced my creative side in fits and starts, with varying levels of intensity, confidence, and success, but always with a desire to continue. Over the past year or two I have become increasingly stifled working in a career that does not suit me and does not reflect my interests or ethos in life.
A milestone seems like a good time to redress the balance. My notice has been handed in. I am looking for work that will be more fulfilling. It is a little scary, but it is exciting, and the world is full of possibility for me to create something more fitting with the fabric of my life.
