2015. One hell of an adventure.
I’ve always been a lost soul. What I mean by that is that I have no idea what I am meant to do with my life and 2015 gave me a glimpse of who I am and what I want from life.
Unfortunately, it was just that ‘a glimpse’.
I’m so used to feeling sorry for myself, my sister receives at least one call a month from me where I do nothing but complain about my life. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great job which I love (most of the time) but we all have those moments where we feel we are not where we are meant to be. Every month without fail my sister would listen to my rant and give me advice and every month I did nothing.
Until I actually did something…
The something wasn’t a great big life changer but it brought life into me and I finally found something more to do, something outside my current job and something I felt would better myself in the long run (which it did). This not so major change was how Jeans Book Reviews was born. I love reading romance novels and I wanted to share that with anyone willing to read. Starting JBR changed my life, I taught myself everything I needed to know about building, running and analysing a website. I was in the zone until another big change…
When your so focused on something else in life you don’t notice that you start drawing in people who see your dedication and focus as something great. The next thing I know I was getting involved in projects bigger than I thought I could handle. I got involved in The Cortex Hub and then starting GirlCode with two of my friends – (I will write a blog on what these two businesses are). I finally started feeling like what I did mattered and that I was making a difference (even if it is a small difference). I have learned so much not only about marketing but about myself in general.
All these changes happened so fast and so suddenly that I sometimes sit and wonder what have a done differently this year to have brought about such good fortune.
No matter how hard I try and think about other reasons there is only one answer that makes sense to me.
And that is…
This year I accepted God in my life and by accepting him in my life the self-doubt that constantly nagged at me has eased a little and allowed me to flourish.
I am looking forward to an even greater 2016 and so much more from life.
More working achievements…
a greater relationship with God.
