Anywhere but here

Have you ever had that feeling that you are in the wrong place at the wrong time? Like a time warp, and you're supposed to be somewhere else, anywhere else, but here. I'm feeling kinda like that with work at the moment. I'm blaming mid-life, but I'm sure there's another reason. I just feel like there is something else waiting for me... something else that I'm waiting for... but what it is, it defies me at the moment.

I've designed websites, been a dental assistant, an accounts officer, a project manager, a scrapbooking design team member and now I'm my own boss. I truly love what I do, but I also feel I need a change. Which path do I take, which voice do I listen to... my head, my heart or my wallet?

Working from home definitely has its perks, but it also has its downfalls too. As much as I dearly love our children, I need some 'me' time to chill out and rediscover myself. I think I've forgotten who I am and what I set out to achieve. I think it's time to re-evaluate my goals and my future.

I'd love to teach scrapbooking or photo editing or something along those lines. I really love watching people learn and develop new skills, but finding a way to combine all the things I love, in a flexible environment and that earns enough money to help pay the bills... now that's the hard part!

Sweetie, I know the head is telling you be sensible, and the wallet helps with all those things money can buy, but to make you truly need to follow your heart.It has taken me 17 years to work towards and find the job I love and truly enjoy.Put your name down at scrap shops never know what might happen and it doesn't cost you anythign to do so.I am sure that there are plenty of scrap-shops around Brisbane.Hugs and thinking of you

Leah you are a brilliant teacher, you have taught me so much already.
Maybe if you can drop a few things that aren't so important, just to give yourself some breathing space, then things might seem a bit clearer. You are a beautiful person who deserves a beautiful life :)
