Oh, hi – remember me?
Yeah, I do still exist. And I’m just whittling away in the background because life has got pretty hectic at the minute.
I’m not gonna lie, this post actually has no purpose. It’s just more of a life update and a little check in on what’s going on at the minute. So sit back, grab a cuppa, relax and enjoy the boring story of, what I like to call, “My life”!
There comes a time when you just need to have a break. Regardless of whether it’s from something that you love or not, it’s healthy to take a step back and actually breathe for a minute. Or about 4 months in my case…
And I’m sorry. I know that I shouldn’t have to apologise, but I feel like I have to. This blog is such a massive part of my life that any time away was strange. There was always this thought in the back of my head saying, “keep going, you love it so much!” and it’s completely right. But there was this tiny thing called ‘life’ (have you heard of it?) that just got going.
It seems that all your life, you work towards that dream goal and getting there is the only priority. But life manages to throw those little obstacles, almost as a test to determine whether you can handle the pressure. At the beginning of the year (it feels longer than that now), my whole world came crashing down as I was told I was being made redundant from my job. And I thought that was the end. All I could think was that I would have to settle into another dead-end job that would take me nowhere.
But I threw that mindset behind and was determined to make it better. I knew what I wanted to do and I just made sure that I focused all of my energy on making it happen. I had a degree, I had this blog and I knew that I could help me secure my perfect role. And boy did that happen.
Less than two weeks after leaving my job, I had secured another role. Which was (and is still) perfect. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. And it just seemed that the stars aligned and the universe was looking down on me. I believe that fate is on my side; read more about what I think of that here.
I am grateful for everything that has happened in the past couple of months regarding my job and that was down to being brave. I’m usually very sceptical and like to play safe, but I knew this was my opportunity. And it certainly paid off.
Everything that happened afterwards has come from getting that job. I was able to see my friends more. I was finally able to commit to events that I previously couldn’t have done because: “Oh, I’ve got work at 6am!” ugh
Gone are the days of me spending my days alone because I was too tired, and hello to living for the weekend. Granted, I still enjoy monging out with Netflix on but I’m much happier doing that now. I am able to fulfill more and, it sounds dramatic, that’s all because of getting a new job.
It opened up a whole new aspect of living for me. So, thank you world. For believing in me.
If you’re still here, thanks for bearing with. That was pretty boring but I needed an update. I’m finally able to find a work-life balance, so my blog won’t suffer anymore. Thank you too. For believing in me. Watch this space!
