A few of you have been around a while & seen my posts. This year was hard.
But of the blue, some goodness came. I wanted to get out of the travel industry, obviously it’s been significantly affected by Covid, but I had also had no desire to continue with it. I’ve been reduced to 2 days a week work for over a year & just needed to move on.
After working from home, I also realised a few things. I don’t want the commute to the city any more. I just want something close to home, no matter how mundane it is.
So I’ve kind of looking while still working my 2 days. I either felt completely out of my depth with no experience in new roles, or felt completely unqualified & worthless.
Anyway, I had applied for a job weeks ago but they had paused recruiting due to the covid lockdown. Anyway, recruitment re-opened, I impressed with the phone interview, HR then had the manager of that role contact me. He called me last Wed, asked if we could meet in person on Thursday morning & by Thursday afternoon I was offered the job.
im so happy! I’m starting this coming Wed & I feel really excited.
Those never ending thoughts & feelings of being absolute useless, worthless & unwanted have lessened & I feel like going back to full time work places me back as a valued member of society.
So just wanted to share my news. I’ve come from a very hard place, to a much happier place in the space of a week. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a change of fortune in such a small amount of time.
Things are on the up! (I hope)
