A couple of weeks a go Chantelle made this post about making big, scary changes and following your dreams. Its been on my mind a lot lately, the search for my own happiness and what it is that will make me happy.
Today I spoke to the scheduling department at work and am relinquishing my full-time position and taking on a casual role instead. I am going to have nine weeks of long service leave in between the two, which will give me time to heal my shoulder, travel, organise my home, see my family and search for new work.
I have a new long term goal to join the police force. I've spoken to recruitment officers and put plans into motion but I know that it is not going to be an overnight thing, it will take months before I will even know if they will accept me but from this moment forward that is what I am working towards.
I still can't work out whether I need to laugh or cry. Giving up my safe, reliable job is one of the scariest things I have done in my 26 years, but the butterflies in my stomach are telling that it is the right thing.
So many wonderful adventures are in the very near future, I know it!
