As my pre-menstrual amalagm of tears and rage continues unabated (but fortunately relatively well contained), I found myself contemplating the question that haunts and taunts so many who feel self-conscious about life itself: is how I’m living really my life? At the same moment that this question surfaced (as it does at periodic intervals), I was struck by a realisation: my life has changed enormously compared to six months ago. Yet while I continue to observe and reflect on the quotidian, I have given the big changes far less attention. And seeing as tomorrow is my last working day until early May, it seems that I’m approaching an ideal time to step back and contemplate the shifts: “a life audit”, in self help terminology, to see where I’ve come from, what I’m doing, where I’m going and, crucially, how I feel about it all.
