The Sun is shining

5 Aug 2009 9:42AM   Views : 254 Unique : 162

The sun is shining here in North Wales and it is amazing what a bit of sunshine can do.

Even though I am still coughing, I am, a bit less tired and looking forward to getting back to work proplerly and getting stuck in again.

It is my birthday on friday and I am 43 and I really do feel like life for me is just starting.

I look back on my last 10 years and although they were probably the years when not alot was achieved I learnt so much about myself, what sort of person I was and what I wanted, so although I am glad to put them firmly behind me they probably gave me the determination and the positive outlook and "Just get on and do something" attitude that I have.

My confidence is slowly creeping back and I am trying new things again.

Lots of things have happend to enable this to happen and most of it has to do with the people around me believing in what I am doing within my business.

I am at the moment "Acting Director" of the Menai BNI chapter and although very nervous about it, I find myself getting so much out of it, today I start a Leadership and Management course at the Bangor University, I will probably be way out of my depth, it has been 15 years since I was in a corporate role.

But it is nice to be learning again...

I have also decided that no matter HOW busy I am, two hours, per day, are going to be dedicated to learning Lightroom and CS, little steps each day will make what seems such a daunting task easier, I hope Smile

I have started uploading here again, it is something I have missed and need to start participating more. Maybe, who knows, I might even get confident enough to try the Buddie Challenge Smile

Have a cool day guys Smile

Have a great birthday Lee.

The bit about learning much of yourself struck a chord with me as i kinda discovered who i was and what my role in this big world is a few years ago after years of confused denial.

Realization is the first and biggest step toward self confidence, the point where our subconscious puts two and two together and actually comes up with four and actively works for us rather than against.

Ten years ago i thought 35 was old, now i am 35 i feel as young as i ever have, weird but true.

I think most people come to the conclusion that life is for living and not worrying about whats being said or done against you.

Its a must to love yourself, warts and all.

Good luck in your new role Lee, sounds an exciting prospect and with your attitude you will do fine.

All the best,
