Dream a little dream

Dream a little dream

This post is neither family or food related but I wanted to share a little with you about where I am in my life right now.  Today is the start of new beginnings for me and the end of the road for a career I once loved.
I’m sharing as without my blog and most importantly YOU,my readers, I would never have had the courage to make such a huge life choice, so I think it’s only fitting that I thanked you.

When I waddled out the door, 13 months ago to begin maternity leave, I fully expected to return. little did I know that in that time away I’d sit back and take a look at all that was important and mattered to me and decide how I can make changes which would allow me to be the person and the mum I wanted to be instead of going with the flow of familiarity.

That I’d stumble into a world of support, encouragement and advice that would spur me to have the confidence to make changes.

And so I thank you all, as without the virtual and physical support I would not be embarking on the path I’m about to tread. Who knows where it will lead me, I’m taking each step at a time. I have a vision but my mantra is

go with the flow, see how things evolve and expect the unexpected.

I’m hoping the changes I’ve made will workout but only time will tell. So as I hang up my work bag for the last time, wondering what life will look like this time next year, I’d like to thank you for sparing 5 minutes to read my rambling thoughts and hope you’ll stay on board for the next step in my adventure, to dream a little dream.

    wishing you all the best, it’s amazing isn’t it that with a little space and time to reflect the world that we were once so much part of seems so far away x #sharethejoy

      I’m a week out of my old role and yes, it seems so long ago now.
