@Katy Evans Awh Katy thats very tough girl - you are in great position with an great education behind you and very young so loads of time to re train or take time or start over. You have clearly demonstrated your grit and determination in achieving your education and loyalty to your job to date
Ive just finished my job after 20 yrs - 31 yrs in total working at airports since i was 15. My background was HR,recruitment and training and in 2007 there was massive restructures done and i was put into a job i knew nothing about - i was chosen as i had a Business Degree and i absolutely hated being chained to desk and even though it was still great money and conditions and so on i lost alot of my vigour along the way. I am social and love people and love talking/training so eventhough i stayed for security and money and wanted to build our house and make sure the kids were ok i forgot about myself.
Make the change,take the chance, you will never regret it.
Have you an idea of what you would like to do. I recently did a workshop with a good friend and ex colleague on personal vision and when the questions of what you want are asked it really makes you think, I am slowly putting together what i would like and where i could see myself. I feel sometimes at 46 that I've left it too late but i feel 26 so hopefully i will plough on :):) xx
