Time's are a changing!

In the next few weeks, I am going to be making quite a few big and scary decision in my life! I am scared, and excited at the same time. I will let you know all about the second decision once I have made the scary jump.

I think this poster says it all really.... the past 6 months I have not been the most happiest about what I am doing, where I am going and what it is all worth?! My mantra is 'life is to short', and life is all about taking risks.... my problem though?! I am quite a sensible person.... not boring, just sensible!! I think about those bills, my bank account and god forbid.....what people might think of me! I know, I know.... I shouldn't think this, but I do!

I am making quite a few decisions lately, that could potentially be life changing... and I just need to be brave! Maybe the fact that I am turning 25 at the end of the month isn't helping. When I was 18, I had a 'timeline' of what I wanted to do by the time I reached certain ages.... and I am certainly not anywhere near close.

Alongside making this change, I am also going to be finding out whether I have the dreaded family BRAC2 cancer gene... Many people have there own thoughts on this, but I feel it is the right time to do this for 'me'. I have been thinking about it for a while, and I think the time is now right. There is a 50/50 chance, and I am hoping my dad's gene's has passed on to me! So fingers crossed.... it might be an emotional roller coaster but I saw this programme about a family that has the same situation as me and it just made me want to find out even more!

So its time for a few change's to mix life up a bit....wish me luck!


  1. Great post and good on you for taking the bull by the horns. When do you find out if you carry the gene. Fingers crossed for you, you are very brave. Vx

  2. I had my first appointment last week, I have my next appointment in 4 weeks time, which I will then have the dreaded blood test! It will then take another 4 weeks to get the results! So I shall hopefully find out in the New Year! Fingers crossed its a good start to the new year!
