Woah! Where did January go??!! Being an extreme lover of summertime, it feels as though I wait all year for it to come around only to have it rush by so quickly leaving me facing another year of waiting.I really need to learn to embrace all the seasons but its a little difficult when you intensely dislike being cold!
The break has seen me contemplating the coming year and where I would like it to take me. Not in the far fetched New Years resolution kind of way, more so the standing at a crossroads not knowing which way to turn kind of way. Sometimes life offers you no choice but to follow the road that you’re on, but for me, this year, I am faced with the fact that I can’t stand at the crossroads forever staring left and right, I really have to move one way or another or I might be due for a collision.
Im not typically a risk taker and have always prioritised lifestyle over making money. I am not scared of hard work but am frightened of neglecting my family, missing out on milestones and not being available when they need me. The kids have reached an age though where they need me less and less and at the same time I’ve reached an age where I have realised the importance of giving my own goals and dreams more consideration.
So it it is with a mixture of excitement and apprehension that I look down the barrel of 2016 at the potential possibilities, wrestling with my capabilities whilst trying not to overlook the opportunities staring back at me.
Left or right I wonder……….?
