Hey everyone, so if you’ve read my post, I guess that you already know my news.. I’ve been offered a job and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Those of you who have read my previous blog posts will know that this is something I have struggled with over the past few years. I never set out to be an “influencer” and being really honest with you all I find that word and description difficult. I also think I’m a bit rubbish at it too. I compare myself to other people and think “wow – how do you make this a job” – It just isn’t something that comes naturally to me.
What I love about my social media is when people tell them that they enjoy following me because it makes them happy. I love posting something that you like or that you comment or interact with me about. That’s why, my social media won’t stop. In fact, I actually think I will start to love it more again, because that nagging feeling of “ trying to make it a job” won’t be there anymore.
I have been so lucky, like incredibly lucky to have the experiences that I have had over the past six years. I have been invited on trips, attended events and very kindly been gifted lovely things. However, there was always something nagging at my heart… saying “I miss working with young people” and I kept going back and forth about what to do and then this job kind of just came to me and I realised that I wanted it more than anything.
I have always thought that I’m not good enough for things… not creative enough, not funny enough, not interesting enough but the one thing that I do know I am good at is helping young people and building positive relationships with them. So, I want to use that skill to try and help people because I find it so fulfilling.
This job opportunity actually came to me in the most bizarre way. I found out about it back at the start of January and I’ve been through three separate meetings/interviews. The last interview was when I ended up in the pub drinking wine and chatting to some man called Derek… ha ha!
I will be working for a charity and I will be part of a new team supporting young people in the Newcastle and I am absolutely over the moon to be given such an opportunity. I’m not going to lie, I am already feeling guilty that I won’t be able to do the school run every day, but I know the boys will adapt.
Thank you for the last six years, I’m not going anywhere. In fact, for the first three years, I ran my social media whilst doing a full time job. I just wanted to share this special news with all of you!
P.s. bet I’m knackered by day two 😆
Thanks for reading.
Love Roisin x
