Change for the better
Well it looks like my life has taken a drastic turn! Through circumstances beyond my control and due to the global financial crisis, I no longer have a regular job. Without mentioning the institution responsible, this decision was a financial one.
Being made redundant on the spot is not a nice feeling. It's as if the rug has been pulled out from under your feet. No one realizes until it happens to them. The hardest part is fear of the unkown. But rather than wallow in it, I take a philosophical approach, a spiritual one even. I've been given an opportunity to follow my heart, start afresh and live a more fulfilling life. For years people have been saying I should put my art out there and do more of it. Well, now I have some time! I have skills, I have knowledge, and a creative drive that's unstoppable. This change was necessary, a re-awakening of sorts, an unexpected launch into a new direction that would not have otherwise happened. The Universe has definitely worked in my favour.
