|Sicily, April 2012|
I'm hoping that 2013 will see further growth and change.
I don't really have a list of resolutions as such - be kinder, eat more fruit, you know, my perpetual goals.
But a big one, I think, is to work out what I want to do and make an effort to pursue that, rather than sitting in an office, hating on my job.
|London, December 2012|
This decision has been, so far, incredibly exciting and terrifying in equal and regularly oscillating measure.
Everything in my training and my five years of qualified practice have encouraged and required me to be risk averse, to be sensible. I don't yet know what I'm going to do next, but I do know that I'd rather leap and fail than find myself ten years down the road looking at how I sat in my own certain misery. That's not who I want to be, nor the wife and mother I want to be. So.
Maybe it's all terribly self-indulgent, and silly and irresponsible and I can't expect more from a job, maybe I'll be back in a few months eating crow... but fuck it, if I don't try to make myself and my family a happier life, who will.
more on this soon, I'm sure,
to leaning into the wind.
