“we can navigate change and thrive”

I have lost count of the number of people who have told me over the past week about an immense change happening in their lives – from moving house, city or even country, to splitting up from long-term relationships, starting families, buying dogs or quitting careers that have been years in the making. Many people would point the finger at Saturn or another planetary disruptor because the air is so filled with radical choices about our life direction, but it seems far more likely to me that we’ve reached peak pandemic and – after a year of monotony – are pulling out the change-making big guns. Months of lockdown, anxiety, fear and enforced disruption to our plans and lives have been the catalyst for a period of collective re-evaluation. Am…

“we all make mistakes”

words: billie bhatia It was only a matter of time until Chrissy Teigen – one of the internet’s biggest voices – broke her silence. Teigen was publicly called out after a series of tweets surfaced from 2011 and 2012 where she used cruel, callous and trolling language towards other people. One of those people was then 17-year-old Courtney Stodden. Let’s call it what it was: pretty bloody awful. After the internet went into meltdown, the laws of cancel culture prevailed and Teigen served a month in the internet sin bin. That was until her recent Instagram apology. Teigen’s post, six slides long, was in my humble opinion a sincere, honest apology acknowledging not just the ways in which she seriously impacted people’s feelings and self-worth, but that she was wrong.

the joy of quitting: how walking away became something worth celebrating

feature A generation of women is learning that leaving a job isn’t an ending, but often the start of something better, says writer Alexandra Jones photography: ELLIS PARRINDER When Dr Aishah Iqbal quit her job in medicine in 2019, her immediate feeling was one of relief. “I woke up on that first day and it felt surreal but so exciting,” she recalls. To celebrate, Aishah decided to spend four months travelling and learning Arabic in Egypt. “Once you start in medicine it can feel like you’re on a conveyor belt,” she says. “I suppose most careers can feel like that. But with medicine, you choose it at 18, then are expected to power through, specialising and passing exams, until you’re 40 or 45 and become a consultant.” A few years out of university…
