My Darling Chloe,
This year, you will prove that when things make you unhappy, you have the power to change them. At the start of the year, you’ll be feeling anxious, working in your retail job, in constant threat of redundancy, moving further and further away from your career goals. You’ll put so much pressure on yourself that you’ll be left thinking “what did I go to uni for?”, “Is it too late?” “Had too much time passed, to get back into the marketing industry?”. *
But just know that change is in the air, and that change happens because you have faith in yourself. You’ll trust your gut and realise that your job is at risk and do something about it. Just for a second, you’ll have faith in yourself and your capabilities. You’ll revaluate and think about how best to demonstrate your skills and you’ll put yourself out there for the world to see. You’ll go to interviews and stay up until 3am preparing for just about everything and anything they could throw at you.
You’ll land the job you’ve been dreaming of, for so long – Marketing Assistant, and not only that, but you’ll land it at an organisation where you can truly be yourself.
This change will test you though, it will bring highs and lows and it’ll be hard to adjust. But you’ll open up and let people in and people will begin to know and like you for you. You’ll prove yourself wrong and you’ll throw yourself into new and exciting situations, experiences and tasks like it’s nobodies business. Just know that every niggle of doubt you had telling you “you can’t do this”, you will overcome.
In 2019 you’ll compare your life to others’, and although you might not have accomplished as much as them, or done all of the things you’d hoped you would by now. Just know, this year you’ll make life-changing decisions and progress in your career that you thought might never happen, and that’s all because you made a conscious decision to believe in yourself. To others this might seem small, but in 2019 you’ll decide to be happy, and for you my dear that means great things.
So in 2019 just have faith in yourself and believe in what you’re capable of. And 2019 will prove to you that great things can happen when you do.
(aka one badass bitch)
