Well it’s been a while since I’ve been writing and oh how I’ve missed it!! It’s such a relaxation, a release, an ability to share, a passion!
So, first things first, I am sorry for the radio silence for the past 6 months; it’s been one hell of a rollercoaster. I have to say there were points where my Mother’s words hung in my head …
If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all
… therein started my radio silence of writing! Mother is always right, right?
Work life has been particularly stressful over the past 6 months. I won’t go into detail because that’s not important or up for public consumption but it involved the loss of something I’d help build up over 11 years, a lot of changes, a new role, a lot of hurt words but worst of all the loss of a lot of good people through redundancies; many who I was lucky enough to call friends.
It goes without saying that the last 6 months have been painful. I have lost a lot of sleep and shed a lot of tears. But I have gained a lot of experience (not one I wish to repeat!) and a lot of resilience. I am a very different person than I was 6 months ago.
As we now enter this new era for the United Kingdom outside of the EU, I enter a new era outside of being a Financial Adviser, outside of advising clients. I will be stronger than I was before, have more determination than ever to succeed and my passion for what I do and the company I work for and people I work with is huge!!
