I think you can re-purpose anything you want if you set your mind to it. Whether it's a jumpsuit, your life, your work, your garden. If you have a job you hate, visualise yourself actually walking out the door one day... going to something better. I did and still do if things aren't quite working to plan and I set myself goals in place to work towards that. I had one job that I hated (a council contract job working in social services) and the person I was answerable looked down on everyone. Her name was Amanda. Every time she got me down or feeling stupid (which was frequently) I thought about escaping... and I wrote a silly poem about her called "Queen Bee" which I have shown to other people and it made me (and them) laugh. There must be something about restriction though that I keep coming back to as I used to feel so very trapped there... there were locks, and codes to remember – some of which I didn't have... making my anxiety so much worse and the clock-watching a crippling reminder of my unhappiness... why do those hands take SOOO long to go round to five o clock. Boom! I'm out the door.. and one day eventually forever ;0)
My husband and I moved 500 miles away from everything we knew and loved... into the wild unknown... re-purposing our life for a for a better one but with consequences that we had to adjust to and, certainly not without its challenges.
As always, with a bit of positivity for everyone who reads this and gentle encouragement I say, go for it... de-cuff that jumpsuit, leave that job for something better, re-purpose what you love if it needs it, re-purpose you if you feel you need to, be brave, you can do it. In the words of another well-used slogan you might know... JUST DO IT! You know you can. Feel it and go for it :0)
