Oh What A Month | A Life Update

Good golly it's been a while hasn't it? Life this passed month has been somewhat of a whirlwind, so much has happened and heaps has changed, all for the better thank God. Back in mid-April I got offered a new job. This doesn't seem like a big deal to most people but lemme tell ya, I have had the biggest anxiety around job interviews for what feels like forever, I never have the confidence and belief in myself. After being knocked back one too many times I just gave up applying, believing there was no point and so I settled in to a job that bored me half to death and leaving felt like an impossible dream.

Well guess what, it wasn't! turns out I am actually kinda valuable and I got a job with a really great insurance company. Happy days. I couldn't believe my luck. Some mornings I wake up still thinking I have to get ready for my old boring job and then I remember, that actually no, I've escaped that and after so long dreaming about it, it can be hard to believe it's true!

The past 6 weeks have been amazing. I got to spend 4 weeks in Dublin training which was something I'll never forget. All expenses were paid for, so I probably put on about a stone in weight from all the free hotel food. I've only ever visited Dublin for brief shopping stints and nights out so it was great to experience the 'big shmoke' more thoroughly, love it or hate it. I also got to reconnect with some long lost friends who live in Dublin so that was lovely. The classes themselves were so enjoyable. The trainer made everything so funny and entertaining and I'm so grateful to have met such wonderful people with such great personalities.

This week just gone was my first week out on the job, which is in my local city. I'm not going to lie, it's been pretty daunting, there is still a lot to learn and there was times where I thought there is no way I can do this but I'm trying to remain positive and remember that everyone else who has worked there has grasped it so I can too.

This passed month and a half I've had so many new experiences and met so many new people, I've created memories that will last a lifetime and I am so happy and grateful. I remember the day I applied for the position online and being so doubtful about it, never would I have imagined what lay ahead.

It just goes to show the importance of taking risks and believing in yourself. If you ever feel stuck like I did, I am telling you things can change, you just got to make that change.
