Well 2014 is well underway; lots of reflection on 2013. It wasn't the best year for me; I've been off work since August with work related stress (and very high blood pressure) - I'm a lot better than I was and plan to return to work on a graduated return plan in February but my heart is just not there anymore. I'm a registered nurse with some management responsibilities and for 20+ years have loved my work but now I feel "emotionally" empty; too many hoops to jump through; way too much paperwork and no end in sight to the bureaucracy. Time for some soul searching and to head down a different path.
My mam lives with us and is only 67 years young but has ??skin lymphoma (due to all the holidays the results of a biopsy still aren't available); both my girls are growing and will soon have flown the nest and I feel I need to spend more time with all of them while I can. A change in career is what's needed but as yet I don't know what.
I would love to be able to work from home and incorporate my craft in some way so with this in mind I'm asking how others set off on this journey.........
any advice you can give me? What is the most important thing to consider; where did you start?. I know that the first step will be the hardest but I think it's time.
