Leap of Faith

 

A little over 8 months ago I was sitting in my broom cupboard (office) looking at forecasting figures for the year ahead when I looked up, looked around at my lime green office walls, the flickering fluorescent tube light above my head, picked up my handbag and of course, my lunch and walked out.

I never went back.

I used to be a Marketing Manager, trying to live up to the corporate expectations and live a life that I always knew just wasn’t for me. Like so many people, I was in a rut and I hated my job. Sunday nights felt like I was going to face a firing squad the next day. Every morning was a struggle to get out of bed and put on a mask of positivity, efficiency and corporate confidence.

I was doing something that did not make me happy!

I have always had a love for the arts, I paint, sketch, craft and most importantly I take photographs. I am a qualified photographer and for years my photography has taken second stage. I have been busy rectifying this.

My plan is simply this. To do what I love until I draw my last breath.

I want to wake up every morning looking forward to what the day has to offer me. I don’t want to post “I hate Monday” quotes on my Facebook wall and wish it was nearly Friday when it is only Tuesday. I made the decision to stop wishing my life away.

This is my blog, my diary and my vent. I want to share with you my successes, struggles, moments of madness and always positivity that good things will come.

Stick with me, it’s going to be one heck of a ride!!
