To be honest, I’d just had enough. I was no longer happy and this unhappiness was starting to spread over into other areas of my life. I felt all I did was work, and I didn’t have a huge amount to show for how I’d been spending my time. I was working long hours - as everyone who wants to be successful in banking does! I was tired, run down, and felt exhausted and ready for a change, I was ready for something different I just didn’t know what that was.
I looked up one day and realised this was not what I wanted from my life anymore. I could not be doing this for the next twenty or thirty years! As soon as I’d had that thought and that realisation, I knew I had to change and one thing led to another and before I knew it I was over in Australia starting my year off!
