Last year my health plunged me over a cliff edge. For eight months, dizziness and vertigo held me in a vice like grip. I couldn’t work. Some days I couldn’t look after my kids.
But, in a rather cack-handed way, my health also handed me a luxury which I had been sorely lacking; time. Between the attacks, I read, I listened to podcasts, I started learning again, I set up this blog and I questioned what was important to me.
As I waited and willed my body to get better, it became clear to me that I was in the wrong career – for me, for my health and for my family. But I had no idea what I should do instead. I considered a complete jumble of different career paths and went down many dead ends, but along the way I discovered that I love to write and I found a new career path in coaching that I know, in my bones, is right.
I would love for this blog to help other people who are trying to decide which path to take in life. As I train to become a coach and delve deep into the world of personal development, positive psychology, the secrets to being effective and the benefits of taking control, I plan to keep posting – I hope that this blog can offer some brain fuel and inspiration to others along the way.
