18 years in the corporate life led me to question if there wasn’t more to life than money, possessions and routine. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the feeling of achievement my corporate life game me, money allowed me to travel and possessions gave me an instant smack in the endorphins. Over the past 2 years, however, I’ve become disillusioned with my life, my achievements and what I was leaving behind as my own personal legacy and knew I needed to change.
And so on the 7th April (which happens to be my brothers birthday) I handed in my letter of resignation to my company with one simple plan going forward. To grab on with both hands the opportunities that were out there.
Photography will of course take a lot of my focus, but there are plenty of other things I’m chasing and for that you can head on over to the Bucket list. Specifies on my running exploits can be found over here.
I’m stepping out into the unknown (for me) as for the past 18 years I’ve had a plan; work 9-5 and at the end of each month bring home a salary. Head out at the weekends shooting football mostly. Take a few weeks vacation each year (while dreaming about travelling and exploring for the other 50 weeks). This new life is as far removed from that routine as it could be and I have to say I’m excited and terrified in equal portions.
I want to live a life worth remembering and despite the corporate success, the money and the possessions I don’t think they will be what defines me and indeed what I think about as I breath my last.
A new life starts from today … And you are welcome along for the ride.
