Autumn has landed and although as I have said before, I love Autumn, I also forget how I don't like being cold...and I know this is still relatively mild.  Do you feel the same, and wish you could hibernate and be all cosy inside?  Not practical though! :-)

Last year and this year seem to have absolutely whizzed by, even though they have been some of the toughest times many of us have had to face. 

I wanted to take this opportunity to say life is not always perfect and there can be many challenges and feeling alone and in a dark hole can be so scary but there is always help and you need to reach out for help, there is nothing to be ashamed of.

 

 

 

 

This is another quote that I liked and wanted to share... 

 The saying 'life is what you make it' is very true but also it's not always easy to make it what you want.  Last year, I decided to change my life, I was so unfulfilled in my work, I as a bit like a robot.  Doing something day in, day out to survive that quite frankly made me miserable.  After losing a temporary position due to the pandemic, I took the opportunity to do something about it and my dream was to be my own boss, I was so fed up of being told what I had to do, it was a time in my life that I needed to take control of my life.

 

 

 

Another inspirational quote...

This change of direction I am on has been a far from easy one, I will not try to sugar coat it, its been extremely hard and I have put everything I have into it because it is what I want, and I think determination and persistence are needed in abundance.

When you doubt yourself - believe in yourself, think of what you have overcome in the past.

When you feel like giving up - don't, be stubborn and keep going.

I like to write these more personal blogs as well because if just one person reads this and it may help, then that makes me happy. 

Until next time, take care and have fun
