So it was May that I wrote the blog I’ll never work again and it was very scary.
I was in a job that I not just hated but that was bringing me down into a deep depression that my partner was encouraging me to seek medical help with. I knew it was the job, the institutionalized habits of employees and sheer bullying yet I had been so proud to achieve a recognised good job in a big company. It was with a great sense of achievement I walked through the door on that first day realising how far I had come from my bed ridden ME days.
It was not for me and I carried that letter of resignation with me for a month before admitting defeat and handing it in.
So now what has happened since. It was scary to hand the notice in and be adrift from the working world again. I had no idea as to which way I would go in not working again and yet knowing that income had to be had. I just had to find a way to do things that I loved that would bring in income.
I spent a lot of time meditating and my mantra was
‘even though I don’t know what I am doing with my life I truly love, trust and believe in myself and I am open to great opportunities’
Now OK that might not sound like much but I was helping to train my brain into loving myself as it all starts with a bit of self belief , I was also training my brain to look for opportunities and great ones at that. A lot of people don’t believe in the power of the brain or in focusing it but it is a simple fact that it works and I can prove it to you.
How many red cars did you see on your way to work/shop/gym….this morning.
Bet the answer is ‘haven’t got a clue!….or Not many…..’
Now on your way home tonight or on your next trip out ask the same question and you will notice that the focusing opens you up to observe and take note.
That means if you focus your brain it will help you seek out your opportunities and that is what has happened to me.
My life now is so different, I no longer have that morning dread of going to work, instead I am energised by the life my passions are giving me.
I love Cabovino for the great food we serve, the wonderful customers we have and the feeling that they are invited into our private dining room. It’s a social life as well as a passion for me of great customer service. I was recently asked by the Boss to go on a beer tasting session with her, now that is a great job!
I also work one day a week for a small engineering company. It gives me the stretching of my brain as I learn new systems and work towards order in a new workplace and keeps my accounting and Health & Safety knowledge alive. I love being one day a week in an office environment and have been asked by another local firm, because of recommendations, if I want to work with them too.
Then I have my other passion of Spain and property and working on marketing for a great company who fill peoples dreams of a fantastic home in the sun. I went through all the paperwork issues and concerns and now I am part of a team to make that life change much easier.
What this is all doing is allowing me to use my skills and passions to bring in money. To then fill my life with great friends and times. Developing my love of gardening and growing food I need for my morning juice and also time to walk and take pictures. As well as being adopted by a cat who I have just found out is called Dexter and now renamed in honour of our favourite place as Altea.
In fact my health is feeling so good that I am thinking of reducing some of the medication I take, now that will be another truly amazing adventure.
It was a huge step to take and I had to trust. I am still on my journey and loving the moment. The Now.
