When I was in Poland back in June with my partner, we visited a salt mine, that went down around 135 metres below the earths surface. We were told we only seeing about 1% of the whole mine, but I was captured by the beauty of the natural salt, and some of the wondeful creations and statues that were made out of salt.

It was a really good trip, and it was the first time that I had felt like myself in quite some time. I had been stressed and worn out from my full time job, and I was glad of the break! I know that Epsom salt baths are good for cleansing the body and the aura, and I guess being in a salt mine really did that for me!

As thoughts of work and my ‘muggle’ job finally left me, I was able to listen to my own spirit and soul speak to me. It wasn’t a loud voice, and it wasn’t coming from anywhere other than within, but it said “Now is the time to leave your job”. I had long wanted to leave my job, but the time and situation was never right. Now that I was debt free, my next plan was to take some time out to study a little more, and catch up on all the things that I really wanted to do, and from the message I received, it seemed like now was the time.

I continued walking around the mine, looking at the beauty and working out what was possible for me in leaving my job. The more I thought about it, the more it became possible for me to do. When I got back to London, I did it. I handed my notice in, and begun to work my three month notice period.

It has been an interesting three months and I leave my job on the 9th September. I think that the last three months have flown by, especially as nearly a month of that time has been spent flying back and forth to South Africa. I have also taken time out to recognise what I am grateful for with the company and the people that I work with. I am grateful that I have met so many people many that have become life long friends. I am grateful for the opportunities that the job has allowed me, in particular to travelling over to America to study and meet some wonderful people, and I will miss part of that.

However, I know that I am now starting a brand new adventure, where I am going to take a leap of faith. It doesn’t take much to make one decision, but it takes a lot to take action on that decision. I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life, and thank you for being a part of my journey so far!
