This day 3 years ago must have been the scariest and yet the most exciting day of my life…
That morning I arrived to my beautiful modern office in Bracknell, only to find out that I was called for a meeting in the HR office. The news were rather unexpected, my position was being made redundant and I was asked to return home and not to come back to work any longer.
The mixture of emotions that I felt during my drive back home was absolutely overwhelming – ranging from the elation of having the freedom to finally follow my dreams and design a new life for myself .. all the way down to paralysing fear of not having enough money to pay the bills and feed my son.
I had to make a decision whether to stick to the familiar and try to find another job, or to do what I’ve been preparing myself to do for nearly 6 years – dedicate my life to photography. That one decision was to change the direction of my life forever.
Looking back now I can see it so clearly that it was the best decision I have ever made. The transition has not been easy and there have been lots of ups and downs, but that’s what makes it interesting.
Right now I love my life more than ever before, and every morning I wake up with the excitement about the things that are awaiting for me.
I no longer go the shiny office, instead I work out of my tiny office in the loft. I wear my orange sweat shirt instead of smart business suites, and I see the day light every single day! No two days are ever the same, new people, new places, new challenges, total freedom and total responsibility for everything I do.
Today I am celebrating 3rd anniversary of one of the key turning points of my life. Cheers!
