Im sat here on this cold blustery October morning and my mind starts to wonder (as you know thats what I do) lol and I’m thinking of all the people who have come and gone in my life over the years. There seems to be so many…
These people have all touched me in some way with fleeting moments, good moments, bad moments, and journeys we have taken together and so on. I’m a great believer that these people crossed my path or came into my life for a reason, after all I wouldn’t be the person I am today without those experiences. Granted, there are many experiences I wish I never had the pleasure of but thats how my life has been. You just need to keep smiling as tomorrow is a new day!
Every now and again life will throw us a curve ball, it knocks us for 6 and god only knows i’ve had my fair share of those, but its not how bad the knock is and I know when that knock comes, at that moment in time, you believe thats the end of your world, but its how we deal with it and the people around us at the time. Some of these people you may not know but somehow, they enter your life for a reason wether to help or hinder you but they are there.
I have always found in my darkest hours that something or someone will cross my path or enter my life and you then have a choice to make. If you choose the right path 9 times out of 10 this path with give you a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to work bloody hard to reach the end.
Look at me now, Not in a million years did I think I would be working in this industry… I was on my knees, in a corner and financially broken after living a good life I had worked so hard for without too many worries. An accountant friend advised me to get into this industry and helped me every step of the way. At that time, I didn’t have any options open to me, I had applied for hundreds of jobs up and down the country with not so much as an interview. I was completely a wear I couldn’t afford next months rent and as my survival instincts kicked in, I grabbed at this with both hands.
Lots of people look down at this industry, in my youth I probably did the same but that comes from a closed mind and a very naive mind set. As I grew, I removed my blinkers and opened my mind with the help from the knocks of life. We are all just trying to earn a penny to survive another day no matter wether you work from 9am to 5pm and sit in an office, work is work in many forms.
So you see, from this little example of one chapter of my life, there is always a glimmer of light at the end of that dark tunnel, you just have to look for it and listen to the people around you and thats not always easy.
