She was going to do something else and was very excited. The conversation turned around to dreams. For the 20th time I told her my dream was to go and do my masters in London and study there. I was living in Malta at the time, Im Maltese.
My manager turned around and told me this. I sat there and gave her 101 reasons why not. And then something in my head went: Thats rubbish. Those are excuses.
At that moment, I made my decision to leave Malta and go study in London. And I started shaking with excitement because I knew Id made up my mind. Sure enough, six months later I had one big suitcase, a huge loan and I went to do my Masters in London.
That was 14 years ago. I now have an amazing life and it all started from that question.
