The truth will set you free but first it’s going to piss you off!
Certainly happened in my case. My truth? Working on a hamster wheel thinking that money was a priority, that my status as Head of a Department was important, that my job defined me.
The truth when I finally faced up to it was that I was dispensable in that job role. The truth is that I’m a mum first and I needed to create a new job one where I was in charge, one which I could fit around my kids; not make their lives fit around my career. Am I cash poorer as a result? Yes. Am I richer in other ways? Totally.
Is it uncomfortable at times making the change? Yes it is and right now I’m figuring out whether I need to write more or do more ironing…guess the writing won!
