Light globe moment...

This week I had a momentous light globe moment. At 37 I have been struggling with what I want to be when I grow up. I am not sure when I will feel "grown up" but I guess I will know when I get there, or not. Anyway I digress, coaching and counselling. This is my light globe!

I have been unhappy in my current role for sometime, for lots of reasons, and have been looking rather unsuccessfully for something to inspire me! So rather than applying for any more roles that I will not be happy in I have decided to return to study.

In the last six months I have learnt so much about; myself, health, well being, happiness, joy, the present, relaxation, silence, mindfulness, holistic approaches, alternate philosophies ....the list is endless and I have loved every moment of it.

Having studied psychology at university it isn't a huge stretch to think I would enjoy and be good at counselling/coaching, it has just taken me 17 years to work it out. So I look forward to approaching this next stage of education with zest and hopefully the conscientiousness that I lacked first time round.


  1. Congratulations on making the decision! How exciting.... It is funny how you go full cicle, I am pondering psychology also. Although will need to recover from the last bit of study!

    Always feels better when you figure it out.

  2. It does...now I just need to make it happen! You more study! Crazy women!
