WEDNESDAY 02nd JULY 2014
So I thought I’d give you a little snippet as to what I’ve been up to the past couple of weeks.
You may recall a blog post where I dared to share my vulnerable side at my frustrations in trying to better myself in my day job.
Well, perseverance, hard work and trying your damn hardest to remain positive – even when you have reached the lowest point in your life – eventually does pay off.
Last week, I psyched myself up for yet another couple of interviews, with a presentation thrown in one of them just to keep me on my toes. I researched, prepped and planned as best I could. I even went as far as listening to some positive meditating videos on You Tube (yeah, it came to that).
I went in with the mind-set that it was my time to shine; the main role required a skill I was well experienced in (project management) and I had the relevant evidence to prove my ability.
And you know what?
I was successful at the Project Manager role – a role that I nearly didn’t go for as I had lost all confidence in myself.
But someone else really believed in me.
And they gave me a chance.
The role is a secondment in a high-profile project and will provide me with invaluable experience. It’s also a break from shift work – back to the normality of Mon-Fri. I will be able to have a much more structured approach to my life and work on my writing in my spare time.
My current writing project is ghost-writing a historic novel. I’m also freelancing as a Sales Executive for the fab new Engage Magazine.
So life, once again, is good.
I feel like I’m right where I belong.
It took it’s time.
But the sweet is never as sweet without the sour.
