Changing my life is not all about the losing weight and getting fit. There is so much more to it.
2016 was a monumental year in my life. It took me 12 months to get my head around my life, Where I was, what I was doing, who was doing what to me, and most importantly what I needed to do.
I put this year of contemplation (as I have called it) purely down to our once in a lifetime holiday in South Africa. When I got home on the 3rd January something happened which made me start this process.
Sorting my life out in 2016 meant making some really difficult decisions. I had to re focus on what was important to me. That was the easy bit. Family is most important to me. I need to find a quality of life and balance as well as doing more to support Sam and my family financially.
You will have read my blog on moving jobs. Leaving the job I loved at The Chamber was one of the hardest decisions but one of the best. I loved that job but couldn’t do it any more. There are a few people there I owe a lot to and they will know who they are reading this. I am so happy in my new job and really looking forward to 2017 with Expert Print and Expert Web, along with the other things I am involved with.
The biggest thing I had to do was look forward and stop looking and hanging on the past. I also had to do what I could to try to get others to do the same. I am sticking religiously to this where possible and I can’t tell you what a difference it makes.
The last thing I have done is to put myself first where possible. Obviously Sam, Lucy and Amy will come first when they need me. That will always go without saying. I have stopped worrying what other people think of me. I am who I am, I am me.
I will help people where I can whether it be personally or in business and I know if they respect me then it will be reciprocated.
My whole out look and perspective on life has changed and I feel I am a better person for it. Come the end of the year I will look like a better person as well.
Until Next Time…
