When I was 5 I wanted to be fairy.
When I was 8 I wanted to be a ballerina
When I was 10 I wanted to be a doctor
When I was 12 I wanted to be 16
When I was 16 I wanted to be 18
I thought I would work in an art museum.
Then I thought I'd work in publishing.
Then I thought I'd teach
Then I worked in the film industry.
To date, nothing has worked out how I imagined it would.
But that's life, no?
And I've learned so much from the unexpected turns life has taken.
The biggest thing I've learned, though, is that whilst ambition has it's place, life is about change, about adapting to those changes and finding joy wherever you find yourself - and often in places you never even thought to look.
So these days my ambition is pretty simple: Lead a life that's as simple and joyful as possible for me and for my family.
And finally, finally I can say I am really starting to meet my ambitions.
