The future’s bright…

April 11, 2011

So here I am after what has been a very long winter of discontent.  Family drama, new job turning out to be the stuff of nightmares, small spiritual crisis.  Add to that the crippling low self confidence (thanks to nightmare job) and finances up the creek (what else is new).  My usually cheery self has been down in the dumps for so long that I wondered if I’d ever smile again.

But all was not lost, even in the midst of all the above, I found the Lord really does work in mysterious ways.  A SEO workshop hosted by Women Unlimited, gave me a confidence and inspiration boost I desperately needed.  And I realised I didn’t have to be a slave to a job I didn’t like, I could go back to temping which I did like.  Furthermore, my dream of starting my own business didn’t have to remain a dream.  I could actually start one.  It could be small and make little money but at least it would be mine and at least I would have finally done it.  A few other things happened to remind  me who I was and what I had left behind over the past year.  I needed to get back to being me.

So first things first was to restart this neglected blog and my first love of writing.  Next is to get back into reading, oh how I have missed the West Norwood reading group.  There are more things: I’m finishing the hated job in June, and no, I have nothing to go to, so am taking a big risk.  Praying that the temping will come good.  And I am going to give starting my own business a shot.  At least I will be able to say that I tried.

  1. I have been in a similar place. I think you might find some parallel experiences on my blog. The future is bright, keep thinking positive thoughts.

      Thanks, that is really encouraging. I think that when you’re in the midst of the storm, all you see is the storm. But faith goes a long way to quietening that storm. Blessings!
