The story behind the picture.
Looking at myself up there presenting I get a flashback to me 7 years ago when I had to put my life on hold.
An unexpected windstorm swept through my quiet suburb turning my world upside in an instant.
I had to resign from my job to focus on my family and the rebuild of our crushed home and hearts.
3 long years of wading through the process, I went to step back into my professional life, yet something didn't feel right.
I found myself in a career crisis.
I had all these questions- who am I now, what do I want to do, where do I begin.
I knew deep down I wanted something more.
But what was that something.
I began taking steps forward.
🚶♀️Rediscovering my unique career journey, unpacking my situation and taking stock of my life now.
🚶♀️Redesigning my career and painting a really clear picture of who I was now and what I wanted my career to be.
🚶♀️Rebuilding the parts of me I needed to get me there. My confidence, self-belief and self-worth.
I had to trust the process and myself as I kept taking steps forward.
I gained momentum, stayed open to opportunities and started saying yes to the things that scared me.
Before I knew it, I was up there, presenting to a room full of beautiful people about how to develop personally and professionally to bloom in your career.
This is what I get to do every day now.
I am so glad I put in the hard work, effort and had the courage to keep taking those steps forward.
