#WorkLifeBalance Revised

with 16 comments

February provided some time for reflection and prospective changes at work forced me to re-evaluate what is important. What do I want to do with my life? As I gallop thought middle-age, I am still waiting to find out what I want to do when I grow up. Where paid employment is concerned I have always gone with the flow and grabbed any opportunity going. I adapt and learn, become good at whatever I’m doing, but am prepared to move on, never having been wedded to the perfect job.

As the focus of my current role changes, to one I am not happy with, I have decided that my writing has to come first. I am in the lucky position of being able to pull back from work for a little while to focus my energy on my words. The last time I wrote full-time I started to go a bit nuts with the social isolation and went back to work because I am a boring person to spend all my waking hours with. Now the balance has shifted too far towards work and I am losing the time I need to write, hence the current re-evaluation. I’m not sure how this will work out, but I know I need to re-focus on my writing to make progress. And who knows, I might even get back to my Italian lessons as well as some long neglected piano practice. I have continued with crochet and, after most relatives and friends received crocheted Christmas decorations, my favourite work colleagues are in line for crocheted leaving presents. Please feel sorry for them.
