Life Update: 4 Months Later

It is 4 months since I started this blog (where does the time go?) and I thought it would be a good time to reflect now that hopefully I have come through the other side. If you’ve not read my blog before you may not know that my career and I went through a bit…

Learning To Say No

The word ‘no’ is often associated with being rude, ignorant or selfish and is often discouraged. But is it really such a horrid word? In some cases yes – when we are turned down for a job, when our house offer isn’t accepted, when someone decides they no longer want to spend time with us;…

The Importance of Health and Wellbeing

I have dabbled with blogging since 2009 but could never find my niche – but at the same time I knew one day I would return. At the time blogging was generating income for some people, but it was still a bit of a whacky concept. Skip forward 9 years and the world of blogging,…

The Power of Closure

Today I got an unexpected surprise… closure. It doesn’t always happen and sometimes we just have to move on. But I’ve been struggling. Don’t worry, this isn’t the demise of myself and Tim (phew). If you’ve been reading this blog since its launch, you may know that my last 2 jobs have been rocky and…

The Joys of Having Anxiety

This weekend was fun. Not. Well Saturday was fine until 6.15pm when my body decided to be annoying and I had an oesophagus spasm. Yeah, it is a thing. The whole unemployment thing has really been getting to me as it likely that we may have to move house at some point and that breaks…

My Life Plan Continues to Evolve

  About 5 weeks ago I blogged about how I was going to pursue some form of career with nutrition and am well into studying my Advanced Diploma in Nutrition and Weight Management. Well this ‘thing’ has continued to evolve and I think I’ve found the that describes me best. Now I will be the…

I May Be Unemployed but I’m Feeling Empowered

Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week… I’ve been busy tying us loose ends at my own old job. Last time I blogged I had just quit my job and I had a week of writing 16 page reports. What I have learnt is that 16 page reports are completely pointless and…

Why I Quit My Job

Last time I blogged I was in a very dark place. I’m still not in the best of places but I’m feeling slightly better. The week got more disastrous after that post. On Tuesday I went on a visit to find a school in the community and TWO Sat Nav’s failed to get me to…

Hitting Rock Bottom

I have been desperately trying to stay as positive as I can recently, but today I’m struggling. To be honest, I know people go even lower than I am but today the feelings of disappointment, anger and failure are real to me. I’ve discussed it before but I have always had a strong internal drive…

Career Update: I Think I Have A Plan

As you may know my career and I have hit a bit of a rut and I’ve been busy planning/panicking about my next move. Last Tuesday I ended up having a bit of an epiphany at 1am. Over the next few months, you may notice this blog may change a little as I have grand…
