After recovery and learning to walk again, I got back into job hunting and found a successful job.
Fast forward another 4 years and on the outside I looked successful. I’d been promoted 5 times but something still wasn’t right.
I was great at my job but deep down I knew that my steel importing career was no where near in alignment with my entrepreneurial, earth loving, spiritual, healing nature!
While in my mind I knew I was meant for more, fear stopped me from taking action over and over again.
The universe was about to shift things for me again.
During a holiday in Cyprus a colleague called me to tell me that the company was closing down and we were all being made redundant.
I felt relieved!
I remember watching a game show that evening that featured a “normal” woman who had her own business. She was happy, she was confident (she’d applied for a game show on national television!) She was her own boss…
She was living a life that I wanted.
I told people that I wanted to start my own business, but the external pressures and the expectations to “be responsible”, “don’t do risky things” got the better of me again and I applied for another job… which lasted 6 WEEKS before I was made redundant again!
