I Have News!

Can’t quite believe it, but it’s been 12 months to the very day since I had my first official Life Coaching session with Lydia.  12 months to the day that I started discovering what made me tick after our rollercoaster infertility ride and the unexpected crossroads I’d arrived at with a bump.  As I look back over it, I feel so overwhelmed by what I have achieved.  Little old I-could-never-do-that, me!  People have willingly paid me to take their photos.  They’ve read and commented and liked my blog posts.  And it means the absolute world.  I can’t thank you all enough as, without your support, I wouldn’t be writing this post.

Therefore, to mark this momentous occasion, I have some pretty momentous news.  Drum roll, purlease………………………………………..As of 1st January 2018, I will be Sally the photographer/writer/doer-of-what-the-hell-I-wanter as I’ve only gone and handed my notice in!!!!!!!!  The Monday after my very first wedding photo shoot, I did it.  I mean, that makes it sound easy.  Which isn’t strictly true.  Despite being in a boardroom with my boss all day long, with no need for the awkward “can we have a chat” line, it took me until 10 minutes before home time to do it.  At which point my stomach was in such a knot I’m sure my voice was at least 10 decibels higher than usual when I finally blurted it out.  I’d gone to the lengths of putting my resignation letter in front of her laptop when she left the room to force myself to say it #suchawuss.  BUT.  And it’s a pretty big but.  I didn’t cry.  Well not full on like the old Sally would have done anyway.  I managed to do it with a mere wobble of the voice and a tear in the eye.

So it’s official.  I am finally, after 21 years, leaving digit-Ninjadom for a whole new world of….well…..of whatever my heart desires.  Which will no doubt initially involve a lot of PJ days.  And wandering around aimlessly trying to figure out what the hell to do with myself, refreshing my e-mail wondering why there aren’t 176 unread awaiting my attention.  And it feels kind of surreal and scary and exciting all rolled in to one.  I am currently swinging from what-the-hell-am-I-doing to OMG-I-cannot-wait and everything in between.  I’m going to miss the people I’ve had the pleasure of spending my days with these past 12 years, but I am very much looking forward to the next 12 months and 2018.  BRING IT ON!

  2. As one of the people you have worked with for the last 12 years we are going to miss you too.

    Having said that, I am pleased that it Looks like you have finally ditched Pru and decided to follow your dream, Good for you. Listen to all your friends and family who know that you will put all the hard work and passion into making your new venture a great success.

    Sometimes Life doesn’t always deal you the best cards as you have experienced with the IVF, From personal experience of this I know how difficult this can be. You have each other and this will see you through.

    I like the quote from Vivian Greene

    Isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
