Spring Clean

Last week I had the week off work and as much as I was dreading it, it was definitely time for our humble abode to have a serious clean out.

So, I did it. I filled garbage bags with clothes I never wear (this is huge for me as I am emotionally attached) and got out the cleaning gloves.

I organised the wardrobe, filed all my papers (what a terrible job!) and now for the first time in a year I feel cleansed - and the apartment looks amazing.

It is incredible what a clear out can do for your peace of mind. I can't even remember which clothes I gave to charity (clearly the emotional attachment needed to go) and feel all the better for it.

It is funny the way life works. I have just read back on the blog posts I wrote over the last few months and realised that I wasn't loving life like I normally did.

I was working in a job that didn't suit me and didn't bring out my best. The biggest problem was, at what point do you give up and at what point do you keep on trying?

I went to Hawaii and New York for a fabulous getaway and whilst sitting in NYC I realised I was dreading going back to work. That was when it hit me that life is too short to be doing something that doesn't make you happy.

So, I have left that job and am just about to start another - a role that suits me MUCH better. I guess you never know about a job until you try it. Experience really is important - it makes you who you are.
