Is changing my career at 32 good or bad?

Some of you may read this & think "Omg Sammie why are you giving up your job you've done for nearly 10 years at 32?" Well a simple reply - "Because you only get one life!" 
I absolutely love working at the Children's Hospital as it's a very special place to work. I've learnt so much, I've worked for some amazing surgeons and I've met some incredible people a long the way. I am definitely not leaving my hospital job because its an awful place to work! 

I am taking a chance! Living my life! I want to work with people, I want to help people transform their lives and turn their lives around like I did. Some people may argue and disagree with what I am about to say but I do believe that losing weight changed my life. If I was still 3.5 stone heavier I wouldn't be doing half the things I am doing now. For instance

  • I wouldn't be a qualified Personal Trainer 
  • I wouldn't have done my Nutritional Diploma 
  • I would't have gone on half the adventures I have done 
  • I wouldn't be proud of the person I see staring back at me 
  • Quite literally I think I'd still be sat at home miserable, overweight and glued to my TV, eating none stop! 

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. I was meant to start my journey with Slimming world - if I hadn't have joined Slimming World and lost 2 stone i would never have joined the gym. If I hadn't have joined the gym, I wouldn't have met my old PT Craig who gave me the kick up the back side I needed to get motivated and to fall back in love with exercise. If I hadn't have met Craig then I wouldn't have met Pav (the assistant gym manager at the time) who introduced me to PT Academy and therefore I would have never started my Level 2 Fitness Instructor or Level 3 PT Course and no way would I have completed an extra Nutritional Course. It all links and even though it's been a huge decision it's been great. 
I would definitely be lying if I said there wasn't apart of me that was quite literally pooing my pants! However, there is a bigger part of me that is way too excited, the thought that I can help people achieve their goals and transform their bodies literally gives me butterflies in my stomach. 

So yes I may be 32 and putting all my savings into this. Leaving a job that I've been at for nearly ten years but wouldn't life be boring if we didn't take risks now and again. So for me I say HERE GOES!!!
