Life Update: I have a new job!

That’s it, you read it right! I have a new job!

I have been the worst blogger in the world the past few weeks as I’ve been wrapped up in this thing called life, you see. About a month ago now I received a job offer that I just couldn’t refuse and today was the day, my first day.

I was at my last work place for almost three years, it was there where I found my feet with my dream career of working in marketing. I started out as an apprentices and then after what felt like a a blink of an eye, that finished and I was offered a full time position there. I have had two and a half wonderful, crazy, eventful years there and I have made a few forever friendships (you know who you are… Ashleigh). I went through heartbreak of which my team put back together for me! And then love, grew up, became a woman and most importantly learnt everything I know there. It was a really sad and hard decision I had to make when I felt like my time was up, in fact it was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life. This was my first ever real job, you know what I mean? I will always be grateful for every opportunity I’ve had there, I am where I am now because of that experience.

But, I just felt like it was my time. My time to grow, move out of my comfort zone and try something new. You can not continue to do something in life that doesn’t make you happy. Something that I’ve repeated to myself over the past 4 weeks since working my notice whenever I’ve had an inkling of doubt is that a comfort zone is a really nice and easy zone to be in but who actually ever grows in a comfort zone? Not me. I read something, somewhere (probably Pinterest) that life is all about trusting your feelings, taking chances, finding happiness, learning from the past and realising that everything changes.

So, that’s exactly what I did. I believed I could, so I did. Today was the first page of my newest chapter, and I’ll tell you this… It was amazing. Bring on the rest of 2017, you have been a pleasure so far.

    Glad you’ve been brave enough to make the move. I know from my past time in recruitment that if you stay too long in one job (much over 2 years), some employers think you’re not ambitious. Mind you I stayed 7 years in my best job so I’m not sure what that says about me! Good luck!

    Just saw it was your first day on Instagram! Hope all goes well! Comfort zones are nice for a while but it’s always good to get out of them.
