I am what is known as a middle-aged woman. After many years of following a path I set for myself, some time ago, I have taken a diversion. The career path has reached a dead end. I have stepped away from being someone else’s to command, from a juicy salary and the identity tags that go with all of that. I am adjusting, surfing possibilities and generally reflecting. I am looking back at the person I was and the world I inhabited when I embarked on being a proper adult, at 26. I am looking at the person I am now, the issues of today and travelling between the two, mentally speaking. That’s what it’s all about.
