We are now coming towards the middle of March and the year is well underway already, but it’s not too late to say that I believe this year is going to be a great one for me in terms of personal growth and that is not me trying to brag, but letting you know that things can change for the better.
Just let me explain and you will see.
First of all, I have been in my job now for 7 months. That has really flown by, hasn’t it?
In fact, it’s not only a job, it’s something I truly love and am actually quite good at.
I remember letting you all in on my journey to getting the position, to telling you about my first month update and now it has been over half a year.
In that time I have learned so much, and have really expanded my skills, opening myself up to new opportunities along the way.
It’s definitely true what they say, that when the real world hits you, it does truly hit you like a tonne of bricks and you know what? You don’t always realise to begin with. But the thing is, it isn’t a negative thing, but rather the complete opposite, it is exactly what should happen and I think I am really beginning to grasp that now.
Let’s look back a few years ago, to the girl you first came to know. She was lost, unsure of herself, and not happy with where her life was heading.
Jump forward a few years, and that same girl is working full time, volunteering and getting involved with several projects with Church and Charitable groups as well as still managing to blog on the side. I have really shocked myself.
It’s as though my life has turned a full 180 degrees and I am on the path I am supposed to be on, or at least that is how it feels right now.
There is absolutely no telling where I am going to end up in my life in a year, 2 years or even 10 years time, but what is for sure, is that I am more prepared for any changes or unexpected moments which may come my way.
I am excited for the next chapter in my life. There are some great life challenges on the way which I can’t wait to face. Bring it on because for once in my life, I feel ready!
To any of you that are worried right now, feeling lost or not sure what is next for you, just remember things can change. Nothing bad lasts forever, no matter how it seems now. It takes a little hard work but you will reap the benefits soon enough! Surround yourselves with positive people and build yourself up. Bit by bit, a difference will be seen.
Bit corny, but totally true.
See you soon,
