It’s both scary and exhilarating making big life decisions, especially if that decision could result in major changes to your day to day life. When I was younger I didn’t particularly like change, but as I’ve grown older I’ve come to embrace new scenery and new experiences. On the flip side, when you’re older you tend to have more and greater responsibilities, and a big change can impact every part of your life – from work and hobbies to running a household and relationships.
I would say, if you’re young, don’t fear change. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to do what you want to do and who support you as you make your way through life.
I’ve also learned over the years that I’m happiest when learning, and thrive in an environment that facilitates the broadening of the mind and development of skills. This is tied in with my chosen career path (graphic design), something I do for a living but also because I simply love it. Creativity is such a massive part of who I am that it makes sense to continue nurturing it throughout the course of my life.
I’m about to start the ball rolling on a big life change, something I have wanted to do for a long time but have never quite been in the right place (professionally, time-wise, and personally). I’m not going to say too much yet as nothing is set in stone, but I’m hoping to be able to update this blog more regularly at some point with more graphic design and creative content.
For now, wish me luck!
