At the ripe age of 35 I looked at what I was doing my life and found there was no real meaning to what I was doing. Mum of 3 kids I’d go to work and I wasn’t happy. I missed so many things with my kids … and what for! I had to work due to money and other family reasons. But rather than continuing I changed my path.
I enrolled in uni to do a masters degree in teaching. I had previously completed a degree when I was younger so I was able to get credits into the new course.
A hard slog and after a year of full time study, whilst working and being a mum – I finished my masters.
Now I have been lucky to gain a job that is meaningful and rewarding as well as working school hours so I’m home with the kids on the weekends and school holidays.
I couldn’t be happier!
