With temporary work placement now behind me, I have a little bit of time to catch up with other matters. After being freed from my previous role, back in May, time has been my friend. Yet a few weeks back working and those previous life struggles, of having the time to flex my freedom and explore possibilities, came pounding back. Those few weeks allowed me to earn money, sure but ultimately I did nothing else but work, eat and rest. This shouldn’t be how we, in the 21st century, now live our lives.
If anything the months from May to August have allowed me to see life in a way I haven’t done since the long, heady summer holidays of my youth. Obviously that old phrase, ‘youth is wasted on the young’ has kept playing its way into my thoughts during this time. As an adult, I feel a greater appreciation for pretty much everything over the last few months. I’ve looked at this time away from the sedation of the 9-5 as a real benefit to my mental wellbeing and feel stronger for it.
Onwards to October and hopefully some clear night skies!
