I had a mortgage, I was travelling with work and had great prospects ahead of me. Inside though, I was deeply unfulfilled. I wasn 't enjoying my work, I felt like I wasn 't using my full potential, and I longed to wake up feeling like my work was making a difference – to someone or something.

One of my friends asks why I don’t do this for a living. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take what was fun to me and turn it into a job.

He also added, to define career, it is related to sequence of professions, occupations, and positions held during the course of a life¬time, including also ‘pre-vocational’ and ‘post-vocational’ activities.
I learned that I am capable of adjusting and adapting to what is necessary. I learned to be independent from a young age. Even if I wasn 't physically with my parents, I discovered they would always be there for me and do whatever they possibly can for me, allowing for a healthy relationship with my parents.
