We've had a bit of a roller-coaster ride during the last few weeks, but instead of getting down in the dumps and all depressed about the situation, we've kept our heads up and remained positive. They say things happen for a reason, and I believe that this was a sign from up above for us to think outside the box, and really put ourselves out there. I realised that although I've got a home based business that's doing well, there is still so much more that I want to do and explore. Forget about office work - that's the reason I started my own creative company in the first place. On a whim one Friday evening, I applied for a half day Au Pair position. It must have been fate, because on the Sunday morning I was told I'd gotten the position! I can honestly say that besides my own business, I don't think I've enjoyed a job so much in my entire life. Yes, it's alot of responsibility, caring for and looking after someone else's child. Maybe I'm just blessed with a really well behaved child, well besides the fact that in my first week she's given me pure coffee disguised as a chocolate cookie to eat; made me believe that there were bergies living in their garage - a real actress this one; and embarresed me by chucking a half eaten fruit bar out the car window while driving in heavy traffic! (All preparation for what's to come in a few years down the line I would imagine!) ;)
As luck may have it, I've also taken on a couple of hours a morning to assist a catering company. Today was my first day, and I absolutely loved it! Will blog more about this once I'm into the swing of things...need a couple of days to get used to having 3 jobs a day. I know this will probably mean working at night when needed, but all I can say is....bring it on!! For the first time in my life, I feel like this - everything I am doing now is what I was meant to be doing all along.
