Today my youngest daughter, Kat, is taking the first steps towards a daunting new career. After a decade of working as a business systems analyst she has decided she wants to do something completely different.
Eight years ago my eldest daughter, Sarah, left the British shores with her partner for a new life on the other side of the world in Australia.
I applaud them both. I think everyone, to the best of their ability, should grab every opportunity that comes their way. Sometimes it may seem selfish but at the end of the day you only live once.
I may not be the most outgoing, gregarious type of person but I do like to think that I have made the most of any challenges or opportunities that came my way. I tried to be true to myself and if I was unhappy in a role I would do something to change the situation. Life is too short to be miserable. My weakness was not really knowing what I wanted to do career wise and so I ended up doing lots of different things. But I do know that if you really want something and have a goal in sight then why not go all out to achieve it?
Don't worry, normal service will resume tomorrow when I shall no doubt be blogging about cycling, the garden or food.
