  2. I DID THE SAME THING LAST WEEK!!!! After 12 years I handed mine in.. I turned 31 about 2 weeks ago and have had exactly the same issues that you have in the job. Negative people, comments about peoples sexualities and gender identity, pessimism. Literally I relate to so so much of this post its like many elements of our lives are mirroring each other. Thank you for writing this! :)))

    1. Thank you Richie. Good on you! Great minds think alike for sure. I think there is a group of us young 20/30 something’s who know there is more to life than this and won’t settle for less. My last job was actually lovely apart from the chaos, a job I had a few years ago was the truly awful one! Would love to hear more about your journey so please feel free to update me. I think something does happen when you hit 30 -you’re still young enough to change course but old enough to know better and to make decisions that feel good to your soul and whole being. Stay blessed x

  4. The secret of happiness….i totally agree. Being out of work last year was a huge revelation to me. For me it was realising, the be-all, and end-all isn’t to have a 9-5 job. I’m thriving on part-time work, with three days freelancing. It took a lot of prayer and soul searching to realise this!
    For a while, you’re a lady who lunches…fancy a lunch date? xx

  5. I did the same thing 3 yrs ago at 31. It’s not a mid-life crisis, it’s your soul taking you where you need to go. Totally agree with your manifesto. Need that even when we’re ‘working’.

  6. This is really inspiring Mimi! You are right about the 30 something stage. I did a similar change at about that age, but perhaps not so brave, as I had supportive husband, and had just had a baby, but changing direction was definitely the right thing to do at the time for me. In fact I did it a few times during my life, so that I could readjust and redirect my dreams path that I have inside. God gives us this as he has made us these creative beings.
    I look forward to following more of your amazing journey!!! God bless!xxx

  7. I commend you on taking this step. I know it was probably hard, but sometimes you HAVE to take a rest. My mother’s recent suicide has really opened my own eyes up to the fact that life is truly short and should be lived as fully as possible. If things are chipping away at your confidence and inner peace then it might be time for a shift. I think it’s brave that you saw this happening and made an effort to correct it before it became too big of a problem. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

    1. Dear Derrell thanks for your kind words. My sincere condolences to you and your family and I pray God’s comfort, peace and blessings over you and your family at this time. I was really impressed by your article and the courage with which you wrote especially given the proximity of your mum’s passing. God give you more strength as you shine light in to dark places. Blessings

  8. I wish you the very best.

    I can relate with this, I made a similar bold move a few years ago, it was prompted by a profound pursuit of happiness. My assurance that I was doing the right thing was the indescribable feeling of peace. I felt like I was floating with all the peace that engulfed my insides.

    Leap of Faith or Leap of Fate? Both seem perfectly apt 😀

    Thank you for sharing.
