About Me

Hello, my name is Alexa Jean and thank you for reading my blog! 
I recently turned 30 and like many people was hit with a clichéd ‘end of my 20s’ self-analysis ‘what have I done with my life?’ type mini crisis.  It wasn’t all bad but it did get me thinking about what makes me happy and the exciting things I could be doing with my life, if I was brave enough to try.  I don’t want to reach retirement age and regret never having tried things differently.  I want to take a leap out of job security and radically change my life!  The idea of earning no money is terrifying, but life is short and I want to create and embrace new opportunities, even though it will mean no shoe buying for a while; Eeeek!  It’s going to involve self-motivation and self-discipline with a lot of hard work.  This blog will follow me as I experiment and learn and forge a new path (in my existing shoes obviously).

  1. Wow! Ive stumbled across a like-minded kindred spirit – Ive recently quit the teaching game in order to “find myself” and try a new direction!! How terrifying is the no regular pay check part!!??!! Haha I will bankrupt myself soon, but you know what? Im so much happier that I was before. Free-er 🙂 Still a bit lost and wandery myself, not sure what I will do, no direction, but I guess this is part of the journey. So excited to read your blog – I look forward to reading all your posts! x

      Hello! So glad you found me, I look forward to catching up on your blog posts and finding out more. I love your blog name, it’s important to just take a breath, slow down every now and again and take a look at life, otherwise you could miss it.

      All the best with your new direction; it’s super scary but I couldn’t recommend it more.
