The pivot started for me around 9 years ago. I was sat on the top deck of a London Bus and etched on the front window was one word. WHEN. And so started a long and arduous journey to find out when I would get what I wanted out of life.
At the time I was in a high paid, high pressure job taking a lot of action that just didn't fit with my core values - basically I was having a daily fight with my values. Not a good place to be. And that catalyst of WHEN just sent me on a spiral of complete burn out, depression, and soul searching. I have read a million and one self help books, I have got me some therapy and most importantly I have taken some time out and put me first. I was the one who said, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, "Happy". It's amazing how we let the world around us shape our aspirations.
I've now got my teenage enthusiasm back, and that belief in myself - not saying it's not a battle some days but I like to think I'm winning.
What made you stop and think?
Mindfully wishing a stress free time
