As dramatic as that sounds, this is literally how I have chosen to see my new business. You have by now read my website and found out about who I am and my journey. It has often been said to me that Women who approach my age have a tendency for seeking out the difficult, the complicated and often try to embark on pastures new. Some even go so far as to call it a midlife crisis.
My thoughts on this vary from pity and humour to complete annoyance. It is a driver in terms of who we are, But for me, I learnt to be be happy and comfortable with what I am and more importantly who I am. I now have the courage to be the person who I always could be. No hiding, no pretending and no struggling with being the person ' people' feel I should be. I am a nurse by trade and have been for nearly 20 years. For me it is more than a job - somehow it is in my personality. The desire to help and support has always been there. Sometimes it is easier than others, sometimes sad but often thankfully, it is an amazing and rewarding job which is great fun. I will always be grateful
To all the teams I work alongside because it is these people who make the long days go quickly and often with humour. So for all you out there - you know who you are - thank you for helping to help others.
There is so much to say here. So much to explore and so may ways to achieve it. Come along for the ride and follow my journey. Over the next few months the business will kick off and I hope to work alongside many others who will guest write or create blogs in line with where I am heading.
Looking forward to many more posts about everything from good food, great drink, friends, fun, the garden and outside life. There will be blogs featuring many of the photos from both my Facebook and Instagram accounts because very often there is so much more to say than what I can include in these small vessels and snatched glimpses.
