The impact of the news from yesterday has been banging around in my head all day, not just about the situation at the university but also the news about the lady with terminal cancer.
It’s making me realise that I need to “live” a little more, for years I’ve simply just got on doing what I need to do to survive without really giving myself much slack to enjoy life.
I love what I do as a business and as a lecturer at university so don’t really see either as work but then there comes a time when I’m asked how’s my weekend been and the standard answer I’ve given for years is mainly work, housework and now gardening & I just think gosh I really must start doing more things other than the usual.
However, I know it will be challenging to change my mindset as for a very long time working all hours that god sends has been my only option to be able to survive financially as I don’t have any fallback or plan B but now as I am able to sure myself up financially I know I need to start questioning some of my beliefs around money & wealth and push the needle a little to ensure that I grow & break down the outdated belief systems I’ve got that now don’t serve me well.
Lots to think about that’s for sure!!
