Good morning / afternoon to all of you wonderful people.
I have been living under a rock and taking some me time away from blogging, but I feel like I am ready to get back in the game and start blogging again! I can not say enough how thankful I am to those that have been tagging me in loads and being extra supportive on my social medias, love you guys!
So, I thought Id write about what I have been up to recently, which summed up in to one word is ‘WORK’. As I have mentioned before in the pass I am doing an apprenticeship – with an amazing charity called Mighty Men Of Valour. Now I can all tell you one thing, I LOVE MY JOB. Everything about it is perfect for me; the people around me, the work it consists of, and most of all, helping others.
Mighty Men Of Valour is a charity that supports children with disabilities, such as Autism and ADHD. However, they also mentor kids within homes and schools.
One thing I have always made clear in life is that I want to make sure I am always helping people, whether that is me sitting in a office booking shifts for children and helping parents over the phone, I am all for it.
Now don’t get me wrong, it is stressful, we are a very small charity with only 3 members of staff working from the office, but I would not love it any other way. Everyone in the office is a close friend of mine and we all support each other no matter what.
One thing I must say is that my manager is an absolute legend. He has helped me through so many things personally and professionally, that I could never thank him enough. He has helped me with my anxiety and giving me the time off when needed, he pushes me and makes sure that I am happy.
As this is an apprenticeship, I work Monday – Friday 9:00 – 16:30 [however on Tuesdays I go to college in the afternoon] which is basically a full time job. Boy, I tell you it was a change and a half from high school. I miss my school breaks SOOOO MUCH. I was saying to Kyle how awesome it would be to work term time.
Now, I am not one to hand out advice or anything like that, but all I can say is if you do need to take a break from ANYTHING [work, friends, home etc…] do it. Do not let anyone or anything stop you from putting yourself first. If you need time to yourself, or time alone with a friend / partner do it. Please do not make yourself worse, to make others better. ALWAYS put yourself first. There is no way in making others happy if you are not happy yourself. Take care of yourselves ❤ if someone does not understand the way you feel, they are not good for you, end of.
Please, if anyone that is looking to become an apprentice or wanting to start full time work, please do not hesitate to ask me any questions or give me a message – I would love to help anyone that has any questions!
Again, thank you all for supporting me through my phase of not wanting to blog. I really do want to get it up and running again 🙂
Love you all, and thank you for reading.
