And out of the blue she returned

Yes, it’s me and not some spambot. Promise, or maybe I’m an especially good spambot… but probably not. What it actually seems like is that I decided on my return today after nearly 12 months without a peep.

It’s actually been a crazy 12 months, the most productive and life changing I may have ever had and it all started with a book. A leadership book to be precise that my boss (at the time) forced on me to build my leadership, communication skills and confidence. What it did was change the way I thought about life, work and people in general and made me see that I wasting away the life that I had.

So fast forward 12 months and I have a new partner, a new job and a new outlook on life. I used to be the person who could see they were going no where but never took any responsibility for it, none of it was my fault obviously. Now I’ve taken that responsibility and in doing it I’m a happier, better person and working towards a bunch of goals which is something I’ve never had before. I feel like I’ve put on a new pair of glasses and suddenly the world is clear again.

Fortunately, I didn’t have to do it alone and am glad, now, to have those persistent people who never gave up on me to help me along, that being new friends, Mum and the awesomeness that is Jarrod.

So now to the future, who knows what it will bring but here’s hoping that whatever it is, it’s amazing.

    So is Jarrod the new partner? ๐Ÿ˜› And that’s exciting — finally finding yourself/your way, that is! I’m still searching for mine. P:

    It’s good to hear that you are getting yourself in order! Congrats on that. It’s not easy to change your life. There are some changes I want to make after I am finished school (another year and a half ish) and I am TERRIFIED to do it. It’s really great that you had a good support system.

    And I’m really glad that you are away from the terrible ex- some people just turn out to be nothing what they seemed in the first place.

    Which book was it, if you don’t mind me asking? There’s a book with a similar theme–How to Win Friends and Influence People–that I’ve been meaning to read and I was wondering if it’s the same book. xD Congrats on getting your life in order though. Must be exciting!

    I’m curious about what the book is as well, please do share! I had been wondering where you disappeared and it’s really good to see that you’re back, better than ever. All of these changes sound fantastic and it’s amazing how much can (and sounds like it has) changed in a year!

    Whoa! It’s you again! Welcome back! I thought that you had left for good about a year ago.

    This post doesn’t sound like it was written by the same person who blogged here a year ago. I’m glad to hear about the new direction and to hear that everything’s going well!
