New Job And New Beginnings

In life what you really want, will never come easy. When you look back at the weeks, little seems to have changed, but when you look back at the year, you realise just how different everything is.  We can become caught up in a chapter of our lives and think that things are permanent and stuck the way that they are. Life is always changing and so we are.

After university, I felt my entire life being thrown up in the air and tossed in all sorts of directions. Everything that was familiar to me was suddenly changing. One of the greatest pieces of advice I was given during this time, was that I had to let everything fall apart in order to allow something better to come together… and that’s exactly what happened.

Last October I decided it was time to go and do something that I have always wanted to do. I decided to go away and work a ski season. Working a season gave me happiness, confidence, freedom and lifelong friendships. I realised that removing myself from the situation that was making me unhappy and placing myself in an environment that was solely focused on my personal development, was exactly what I needed. I had an opportunity to re-evaluate all aspects of my life and to make some changes to it. I wanted to feel inner peace, self-love, and motivation and most importantly, I wanted to feel fulfilled.

For six months I focused on learning to snowboard and nothing else seemed to matter. Whilst I was away, I felt productive, calm and determined. Everything that I had set out to feel was becoming my reality. I was in my happy place. It was exactly at this moment that I reminded myself why couldn’t I always be in my happy place?

We gain so much happiness and fulfilment from learning new skills, keeping ourselves active; constantly growing and doing the things that make us happy. I was in a of state of clarity.  There is no reason why we can’t be doing the things that make us happy on a daily basis. I decided that I wasn’t going to just settle for any job. Work is going to fill a large part of your life and to feel fulfilled you have to love what you do. I’ve worked hard to get what I want out of my life and last week I started my new job at L’Oreal. Working in beauty communications is something that I am passionate about and excites me.

So this is where I am up to in my life. I am now working in a career that I love and I am excited when I get up in the morning. I am productive with my days and I can’t wait to see what each day holds. That’s what life should be about.
