Where does a change begin?
I am a workaholic. Seriously. I work 5 days a week, sometimes 6, 12-14 hours a day, sometimes more and when I’m not working my job in the film industry as a costume designer, I am helping out on volunteer film projects on weekends. It’s not really a bad thing, I love what I do. It’s exciting, creative, challenging and each project is different providing a lot of variety in my working life. At 25 that was all fine and dandy, but 27 rolled around and I started to notice something; my twenties were flying by at an astounding pace. Soon I’ll be 30 and what do I have to show for it? Everyone I know has these amazing photos rich with life experience, travel, love and adventure. My page seemed bland in comparison, was I experiencing Facebook envy? I wanted that for my life. I started to seriously wonder, would I wake up at 40 filled with regrets? I read an article where nurses shared the top 5 deathbed regrets and I wish I hadn’t worked so much was on there. When I was 24 I experienced a heart break and I had thrown myself into work as a distraction but now something simply must change. I have been dreaming of travelling the world for years, what is there to hold me back from doing it now? So this is the beginning, I welcome you to join me on my little adventure to change my life and alter those death bed regrets.
