So where to now?
Once you are feeling safe and secure, and are beginning to re-invent yourself, consider your future and your dreams. What do you want to do with your life? I want to write a book, and have three amazing ideas, so I know I need to do a course on writing. Creative writing. I found this really great writing centre that I could attend in person or do online. So that is my goal. In the meantime I have been studying. I love to study, to learn things I didn’t know before.
So what would you like to do? It doesn’t have to be education like I have chosen. How about a sea change? A move to another town, or even just a move to another house. If you have children, you may need to consider their needs as well, and I bet you have struggled with how to ensure you have a safe and happy environment for them.
The possibilities are endless. Perhaps you would like to become a nurse, a teacher, a gym instructor or just a cashier at a bank or department store. Maybe you would even like to be a gardener. One things is for certain, you have reached a point where you have taken control of your own life, and want to do what is best for you.
So look at what is out there, do research, get advice, but take your time and consider what is in your future, and how you can get it. Because now it is your time to look at endless possibilities for your future.
