Moving on up

Adios, Au Revoir, Ciao, Auf Wiedersehen, Bon voyage, Sayonara, farewell... 

Today is officially the end of an era.. I am leaving my current position to start something new and fresh. 

It's been an interesting journey to say the least and has given me the experience I needed to move on up - is anyone else singing M people right now? 'Moving on up, time to break free... nothing can stop me...'

No? Just me then... Anyway, moving swiftly on.

Progression and development is key, and I think anyone who is career driven and aspires to be better will agree with that statement. This is one of the main reasons for my farewell, and also because I think going on a new adventure, meeting and working with new people as well as learning new things is extremely exciting and worthwhile. 

However, it's still very sad to say goodbye.

We had a team picnic which as you can see, we had far too much food and not enough mouths to feed. It was honestly lovely, and very different! Which I like, you know me... I have got to be different. 

I am going to miss my girls the most. I think people make a company and when you have gained some fantastic friends like I have - Shell, Sammy, Josie & Karen #NameDrop - it's sometimes sad to think I will not see these people every day. 

However, this isn't something that can stop you from fulfilling your dreams and making the most out of life. I have gained some lifetime friends and I will forever be thankful to those people who have made my time a pleasant one. 

Thanks for the memories :)

The negative side of life

After throwing a few fucks, shits and nobs directed at the woman in the car in front of me, I realised I was going crazy. 

My 35 minute drive to work turned into an hour and 10 minutes as the woman in front of me decided to let every Tom, Dick and Harry cut in. Then for some unknown reason, she just didn't like the speed limit and decided driving 30 in a 60 was just OK!

I had a meeting at 9 am and I was so close to being late for it. I think my blood was boiling because I had it in my mind I would get into work early to settle into my day and I clearly wasn't going to be. 

My mood went from bad to worse as my stomach started grumbling. My 08:30 morning porridge was clearing not happening and to be quite frank, I was pissed off about it. 

Which may be the reason I was directing my anger to the woman in front, who I still think is a complete moron who cannot drive. I am definitely the wrong person to mess with when I am tired and hungry. 

Two weeks on from that incident and it's still on my mind.. what is wrong with me?? 

I get road rage every now and again when people - who clearly shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel -  decide to fuck up my drive to work. I don't know whether it's my age or whether it's because I had plans that day, but something really struck a cord with me. 

I have been thinking about it over and over again, and I have put it down to negativity. Which is what I want to talk about today. I always try to create positive vibes, but honestly, it's friggin difficult at times. 

Everyone gets these moments, even those people who tell you to spread the love and positivity to the world can be arseholes at times - surely! 

Not that I am by any means justifying my actions, I know my aggression was misguided and completely out of order. But, I think that's just me being human. I am an emotional person, mostly laughter and crying - when I am happy and sad. I am hardly ever angry and it takes a lot to push me that far. 

I think we all have a breaking point and people always pin aggression and sadness to negativity which I have to say is a load of bullshit. 

I agree being positive is the best way to think. I find that I am always in a better place when I think positive thoughts and I like to believe that life is good. But then you also have to be realistic, we all have bad things happen to us, we all go through shit and we all feel down at times. I think having negative thoughts is life

I think being negative is just a part of being human, but seeing the positive side to things will definitely bring you more joy out of life.
