I initially started this blog for all the wrong reasons, I wanted to make money from it!! I currently work in social media (sort of) and I spend my days looking at amazing blogs knowing that people can stay at home and make a living from blogging. I was jealous and thought if they can do it why can’t I?!
To begin with, I was keeping it all very secretive – my about me page contained nothing but cryptic clues as I didn’t want anyone to find out this is me, and I had written what I thought people may want to read rather than what I actually wanted to put. However have spent a couple of hours reading some blogs from some very inspirational women I have decided to start again.
So here is attempt two (which is shocking considering this is my third post!)
Here I will now share what I want to share, rather than what I think needs sharing.
Part of the reason I didn’t want to share too much is because I was/am ashamed to admit I am a mess. I had a plan for my life you see – nothing concrete, just an idea of how I wanted it to be and it involved me going to Uni, doing a course with a specific job in the end, getting a job at the end of it and then working my way up the career ladder until I reached as far up as I wanted to go. Then have loved every second of my glittering career, I would give it all up to become a full time mum.
However, it went so very wrong.
I worked my ass of to get a good degree and I was lucky enough to come out of uni and straight into a brilliant job in that field. Then is went wrong. My boss took an (almost instant) dislike to me and uttered the words “I am going to get rid of her!”
It took the b*****d three years but in the end he did. He played mind games, he completely destroyed me. I fought him. I fought him so hard. I took it to tribunals and fought tooth and nail to save my career. But the b*****d won, in the end I had to quit my job and walk away.
He won and sometimes I feel like he is still winning.
Or he was. This is my blog and I I will be open and honest and unafraid. On it I will chart, open and honestly what is happening in my life. I have so much good stuff to look forward to, so there should be lots of that, but I am going to be open and honest about the not so good stuff as well.
