My kids have grown up and I don’t have a mortgage any more. I worry less about kids and money and deadlines.
Refocusing from being totally immersed in my career has been like jumping off a cliff for me.
I took long service leave, left the suburbs, and went to Nhulunbuy in Arnhem Land where I lived in a tent at the back of a house until I landed a job as the career advisor at the high school.
I wouldn’t recommend such a radical path to changing your life. It is interesting to look back on but I think I went a bit crazy along the way.
I have meandered back home. Richer for my adventures. I have scanned the landscape for my holy grail and as legend has it I have found it in myself.
