What have I been up to...Part 2

Whilst I was in New Zealand I took time out to relax (even though we had that BUSY schedule) to think about what I do and where I want to be with my career etc because living up here there is money to be made in other industries even in Administration if I wanted too but I really didn't want to go back to that after putting so much time and effort into studying for Financial Planning. I had even considered starting my own business up here and cutting ties with the firm I work for over East. Then it moved on to other elements like getting married and children.

Well, I didn't have to think too much more about the work part because when I got home I was informed on my first day back at work that my position was being made redundant - I finished at the end of that week! Yes this is the company that had just paid for me to go to NZ but this was an unexpected matter and I was not the only one that lost their job. In a way now that I look back on that it was the best thing to happen because it made me have to make a decision not dwell on the pros and cons of every situation which is what I can get caught up in. To provide some further insight where I live there are not many work opportunities for what I am trained in and what I am very passionate about so it really was my first wake up call for me living up here and what that was going to mean for me. Jobs are not hard to find here which I have to be very thankful for but there was still that feeling in my stomach that I was going to have to give up something that I had worked so hard towards.

I do have a photo for up on here but I have no access to my main drive as it is backing up and I wanted to make sure I got Part 2 up before I have to head to Sydney for a week and then Perth. I will be back with the rest of the story on my return and hopefully this time with some more photos and layouts!

Heaps of Hugs
