I have lived most (if not all) of my adult life in the corporate world. I became a commercial lawyer, and worked crazy hours with a limited personal life. I have been through many senior roles for organisations both large and small, and have had the privilege of working in many countries in Asia as well as the UK and the US. The stress levels, however, were very high and it took a toll on my health and happiness. As I am now reaching a certain age, I know that it is not my life-long love and ambition to continue in the corporate world. Yes, I will for a while, but not forever.
But what to do? Knowing that the path you are on is not the one you wish forever, I was then faced with the dilemma of “now what….” People told me, “do what you love, and it won’t be work”….
I have been a practicing yogi for over 12 years, and I knew it was one thing that I really and truly loved. So…. I found IHA yoga, and decided to gain my certification to teach yoga.
Although it has been a grueling first week both physically and mentally, I have (for the first time in many years) come home really and truly happy. I can see a path to the future, and it gives me a level of peace.
It won’t be easy (especially at my age), but it will be worth it. You will see!
