During my life I have often been told that I should write a book and although I haven’t quite got as far as that yet, my ability to create with words has always been apparent, I’ve written the odd funny story and a few poems but I had never thought of pursuing it as a career option before. After being in endless jobs that made me feel more deflated than elated by complete chance I landed myself a role in marketing, something I never studied for and am certainly not an expert at but it excited me, now I’m not talking major marketing campaigns for a big corporate company, I just manage social media and the website for a small family run business, to be honest to begin with I wasn’t sure that what I was posting on Social media was even going to catch the eye of the reader, but what I did know was that it felt natural to me, and as it turns out it did catch the reader’s eye and brand awareness has soared. I’ve since discovered that the more I write the more I want to write, I feel alive when I’m writing, it ignites a spark within me and I feel passionate about the words that I put down on paper, I can express the constant flow of thoughts that go through my mind in a creative way, I’ll always try to add a bit of humour and depending on who’s reading my stuff I may raise a smile or even an eyebrow here and there, well that’s my aim anyway! I guess you’ll have to be the judge of that! You see I’ve always had a busy mind and I’m sure it’s the same for anyone who is creative a non-stop stream of ideas go through my head on a daily basis but until now finding a way to channel them has occasionally been challenging if not frustrating. I don’t know if I’ve found my vocation in life but writing feels so familiar and comfortable to me that I owe it to myself to put it to the test, this is where it becomes a little scary, you see in order for me to excel at this I need opinions and we all know what opinions can do to a person’s confidence! Opinions can be harsh and people can be unkind but that’s a risk I’m willing to take for something I feel so passionately about. I need to get my writing out there so whilst a book could be on the cards in the future, for now I am writing some blogs, these blogs relate to my personal experiences of life! Ok I’m not a famous entrepreneur or a celebrity or even a therapist but I’ve definitely had a life that could have broken me, thankfully it didn’t, instead it made me stronger and I guess by being able to write about it, it could help others that have had similar experiences who may be looking for some inspiration, I’m not claiming to be able to change anyone’s life but if I can help just one person with what I write it makes it worthwhile. We all need something to fulfil us in life and after many years of looking for that missing link, I’ve stumbled on something that I have always had the ability to do, talk about “can’t see the wood for the trees”! Sometimes all we need is self-belief!
