I am a big believer in the old adage “you can have everything, just not all at the same time” and I also believe that work life balance is not always possible or suitable.
If you asked me as a 5-year-old, a 10-year-old or even a 20-year-old you would have heard one of three answers; vet, school teacher, cafe owner. Not in a million years would I have thought I would be a General Manager for an agency. And I definitely would not have thought I would have found myself in this role at 22-years-old.
Today I finally returned First, We Make The Beast Beautiful by Sarah Wilson to my local library. I am not joking when I say I am 100% expecting a $50 late fee from the library. I hung onto this book forever. Why? I found this book to be like a comforting, warm hug from your mum after a long and shitty day. It made me feel like someone else understands my brain and the highs and lows I have experienced with my own mental health.
