So it’s been a year since I found out I was being made redundant and my little house of cards came tumbling down. I’ve been in reflective mood today as a result. It’s been one hell of a year. I thought I’d be in a very different place than I am. I don’t feel like I’ve moved far or achieved much in the past 12 months.
To say it’s been challenging and full of twists and turns is an understatement!!
I didn’t see a broken ankle. I didn’t see a global pandemic. I didn’t see lockdown. I didn’t see both of my parents being in and out of hospital. And so many, many more.
It’s been scary. It’s been emotional. It’s been one of the most challenging times of my life.
But I’ve made it through. I honestly don’t know how! There have been so many times when I wanted to give up. But I’ve dug deep and kept moving forward.
It’s so hard having to face so many things on my own. I’m so grateful for the many wonderful people I have in my life who’ve picked me up when I needed it.
It’s not all been bad. There have been so many wonderful moments too.
I know things will get better. I know I will be in a very difference place this time next year. I just have to keep moving forward and trusting the process.
