One cannot write more than one is…..

Adventures In Happiness – so what’s it all about?

In short, and perhaps because I am a little bit stubborn, but I have spent the last year and a bit with my head down writing editing and rewriting a story of what it was really like to take a chance, make a shift, and start to live a very different life to what I was so used to.

I’m not sure if it makes me a pessimistic optimist (or just a persistent narcissist!), but I stuck with it because I believed (like so many) that I had a story to tell, and I wanted chance to process all that I did. I’m not sure why, but something told me that it would be cathartic and useful.

And it really was, I just didn’t appreciate how much of a learning journey it would be when I first began. And that’s when I started to think I might have something useful to share back out. And to be honest. In amongst all the nice feedback and support from friends and family to keep going with it, that’s what kept it moving. That and it was fun to create something. And now I’ve written a book 🙂

Didn’t see that coming when I left my job!

I have no idea where it will lead, maybe somewhere, maybe nowhere, but I’m proud of what I stuck with, proud of what I did, proud of what I learnt, and very excited that I will be able to share out what (I hope) is a lighthearted story of what happened as I adventured around and made some pretty big changes in my life.

The below is a snap shot of the chapters to give a flavour of what is to come. I hope you like the sound of it, and when it’s out in the public domain, I hope others find it useful / inspiring / cringe worthy / good to start fires with.
