Things I learnt this week
Going back is never about going backwards - life moves forwards indefinitely.
Things can be the same yet so, so different, all at the same time.
Feeling excited anticipation at spending time my daughter is lovely, but I don't want that every week long-term.
I have THE most supportive husband ever in the history of husbands.
It's odd that I don't want to work in an office long-term when I come home to a clean house, a roast dinner and a glass of wine awaiting me.
All the things I love to do can live happily ever after, together.
Maybe I do still want it all - but my idea of 'all' has changed.
Building a career on common sense and instinct was the smartest thing I ever did. They're not skills that fade or are forgotten.
Confidence can make a very speedy return.
Creating a new ending to a part of your life you look back on with bitterness is empowering.
Sometimes I have to know my limitations, keep my goals in mind and hold myself back. Just because I can see what will work doesn't mean I have to do it.
Working with people you like and respect will always inspire you.
My priorities in life haven't changed. It's just that now, I control them.
