My life is so different now: Unlearning and learning

My life is so different now to what it used to be a few years ago.

Back then, I was a communications executive working for multinational industrial companies. Despite the various perks, my time was not mine.

The voice inside me telling me there’s more to life was becoming uncomfortably louder and louder.

Over time, the urge to break out of the golden cage became stronger and stronger.

If you are perfectly honest with yourself, there is something irritatingly uncomfortable about a golden cage.

Especially when you know that you, and ONLY you, are holding the key.

I did break out of it.
I made an intentional decision to live on my own terms.
I promised to myself that I will make my courage bigger than my fear and make it work.

Today, I am well into my third year of motherhood.
My time belongs to me, my young daughter, my husband and those who are dear to me.
I run a thriving business that I had set up from scratch.
I love the convenience and comfort of working from home. I get to be there for my daughter and, at the same time, lead a purposeful business by empowering others to do the same.

It’s been a journey of unlearning and learning.
Coming from a corporate environment, the UNlearning part came first and was absolutely crucial in order to move forward in building my own business.

Do you also find that, sometimes, to learn something new, you have to first get rid of your ‘old’ ways and unlearn?
