Last day of work before Christmas today and I feel that I've learnt so much this year: mainly that honesty really is the best policy; with others and YOURSELF.
After many inner battles (pretty much every morning on the train), I was feeling more confused than ever about my job sitch...until one Monday I took the bull my the horns (really frigging gently, with a face a paler shade of grey) and called a meeting with my bosses. I began to tell them I was unfulfilled, that I was constantly daydreaming, building up my own creative ideas that I didn't have time to implement, and (basically losing the plot a bit), questioning whether I was being unrealistic and should just shut up and carry on (as us British like to do)!
The response was out of this world...they couldn't have been more supportive and we negotiated a part time contract to begin in January 2017, allowing me to kick start what I really hope to be one day be something special in 'Creative Ginger'.
It just goes to show if you really want something, something in you WILL take over and do the talking. you've just got to let it! I mean, I'm the kind of girl who apologises when someone else interrupts me- so if I can do it- YOU CAN!
Having incredible family and friends who listen to your same old dilemmas day in, day out also helps immensely...so THANK YOU...you know who you are! I wouldn't be where I am now, starting this exciting new journey without you guys spurring me on! x
