Thanks Mccdatabase for you reply.
To be honest if i was in my current job for that long i probably wouldn't have to much good to say about it.
Sometimes in life we have to walk the walk if the impulse / heart tells you too..
I can easily change direction in years to come if needs be. Are we tied to one career for life, i don't think so.
I'm sure you enjoyed your earlier years in the trade?
All jobs have downsides and hardships, sometimes we have to remember why we got into it..Was it our passion, has this changed !! if so why am i in something i don't like, takes a lot of courage to change i know.
I'm trying not to get this post to go off on a different tangent about love/hate relationship with work.
But for those of us interested have a look at this small video.
