Good morning lovelies!
It’s been a while since I last wrote a happy Friday post (I’m sorry!), so I thought I’d wish you all a happy Friday on this beautiful morning. Right now, I’m at my desk enjoying a light breakfast (a slice of whole grain toast topped with peanut butter and sliced banana and drizzled with honey) with a mug of chamomile and vanilla tea on the side. And I’m just full of smiles today! It’s Friday, it’s the weekend and life is just so good! Let me tell you more…
So, subscribers, a lot has gone on over the past two weeks. First off, I’m leaving my current job in the middle of December. Yup, I’m going for good! I handed my resignation letter in on Wednesday, which was a lot sadder than expected. I’ve only been at Fleet Street Publications since mid April, but ever since starting here I’ve improved in leaps and bounds as a writer. I’m so humbled by how far I’ve come in this short space of time and for all of the opportunities I’ve been given.
But, as sad as it is to close one chapter and begin another, it’s also beyond exciting. Next year I’ll be joining Velocity Media, the company I’ve been freelancing for, as a leisure journalist. Writing about fashion, beauty and lifestyle and becoming a credible writer within those fields is my dream. So it’s safe to say that from next year, my passion will be my career! I know how few people are able to say that, so I’ll have you know that I’m very grateful for the opportunity. It’s crazy to think that at the beginning of this year I was nothing but a journalism undergraduate with nothing to my name, seeking any work I could get, and now I’m growing into a well-known blogger with a number of incredible work opportunities on my doorstep!
I think what’s important to note here is that hard work and determination is all it takes to reach your dreams. I don’t mean to get all deep on a Friday morning or anything, but it’s true. I feel the need to stress this point. I see far too many people who are too lazy and unwilling to work hard and make every day count. And it baffles my mind. How can you expect to reach your final destination AKA your dreams when you’re putting in minimal effort? It’s impossible! Working towards your dreams is a tough journey. It’s hard work and requires perseverance and utmost determination. It’s very tough, in fact, but it’s ever so rewarding. For me, that’s more than enough reason to continue pursuing my dreams with my whole heart.
Anyway, ramble over… Enough about that! Onto the next thing: The positive feedback I’ve received this week!
Thank you to everyone who’s liked and commented on my posts this week. I’ve received some amazing feedback, and for that I’m incredibly thankful. I’ve also started following back my followers, and I must say that I’m very impressed by what I’ve read on your blogs so far!
Please keep the wonderful comments coming darlings. Feedback – both good and bad – is what helps me write better.
On a lighter note, happy, happy Fri-yay-day to you all! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I’ll check in with you all again on Monday.
