It was at that moment on New Years Day 2011, as I watched fireworks explode over London that I realised I needed to change my life for the better. Having struggled with depression and a fear of being stuck in a dead-end job for the remainder of my life, I vowed that 2011 would be the year that all changed. Boy I had no idea!After 9 laborious years working at Sainsburys, I finally handed in my resignation letter after my CV was spotted on Monster.com & I left for pastures new in 2011.
Ever since then, I've gone on to reach new levels I previously thought to be impossible. I've gained new skills and my confidence has flourished in a working environment where creativity is encouraged rather than frowned upon. In hindsight, it's strange how fear can be so beneficial to ones life. There were times where I was ready and willing to totally give up on my dreams and my depression didn't help at all. Yet, that one moment on 1/1/11 ignited a passion inside which saw me achieve one of my main goals in life and for that, I will treasure that moment for the rest of my life.
That moment will live with me forever, and you can experience that display for yourself here:
