Hi guys, Happy new year! how has it been so far for you all? For me, it has been amazing, to be honest the past few weeks have been the most serene, peaceful and happy I have had in a LONG time. I can’t really explain why it has been so, but I expect it’s due to my increase in really taking time to enjoy myself as well as the people around me. Honestly I am beyond satisfied with my current state of being so much so that I wish I could bottle it and bring it out of the cupboards when times are hard, however I am planning on maintaining this state and hopefully keeping you all on the journey with me.
2014 was an experience, I had a lot of change and one of the biggest things was making the move to being a full time Youtuber / blogger. I wrestled with myself a lot about it, and honestly had a lot of tears and sleepless nights with the worry that I wasn’t going to be any good, people don’t really like me, and I am throwing away an amazing career and long term financial comfort. Now a confession, when I left my role as a consultant to pursue this, I continued to receive calls from recruitment agents and firms, and although I knew that I left to be a blogger, I still answered calls and was convinced enough to attend an interview at an amazing international bank, where I was offered the job. I took the job, and started working a week later, the salary was £55,000, Plus bonus, I came in around 9.30, and left at 4.30 and I had the greatest team and the coolest boss. It was cushy but I also had the opportunity to really make an impact. BUT, and that is a big BUT; it really wasn’t where my heart was (However I would work there in a flash if I had a HUGE change of heart, and if ‘Mr Boss’ man ever saw this post, I would love to let him know that he rocked, and I know I was opinionated but it is just passion for projects !). Deep down I knew that it wasn’t where I was meant to be, I stayed for 3 months and then made my excuses and left. I realised that in life you have to go all in or go home, and there are still times where I really haven’t gone all the way, however more and more I am realising that I have to ‘Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!’. I’m getting there.
2015, I am expecting that so much more from myself. I truly believe I can have it all, peace of mind, joy, strong relationships, flourishing business, and all that my mind and heart can desire and even more. Yea, I said it.
Now for all my beauty lovers, and those who want to know what gifts were bestowed on me over the festive period, then look no further as I shot a video detailing all of this which can be found below.
