I've had a 'forced' career change, which may actually be the best thing that ever happened to me! Working hard, long hours, more stress than any one person needed....mortgage, car loans, etc...
Now, the job is gone, but so is the stress, the need for the 'reliable car'; the house is going up for sale, and I'm now working in carpentry. As the boat is 'bought-and-paid-for', I'm moving back onboard (I had livedaboard from 1998-2003), and find myself excited at the prospect of returning to a life of more managable, real-life stressors (is the anchor set?, when was the last oil change?,....you know the routine).
Seven years of university, umpteen tens-of-thousands of dollars on education, and the circle has come back around.....!
