Some look at their dream from afar, never really exploring how they are going to achieve it. Never making a plan, never taking any action, never taking any risks, never learning; growing; thinking; or doing. I am not one of those people. I see a dream and I go after it. Sometimes it takes longer than anticipated to get it, but I won’t give up. Better to have lived and tried, than given up!
I am being made redundant for the 3rd time in my life on Thursday 21st Sept. I am however, going to be staying on for 4 weekends, part-time, until 15th of October. It is in effect to trial the part-time job that they are replacing my full-time one with. But after that I will be taking redundancy as I cannot live on a 16 hour contract.
Although I keep getting tearful at leaving a day job I love, and leaving work colleagues – some of whom I can call friends, and feeling the anticipation of what job I will get to replace it, I am also optimistic that I can now pursue my dreams and devote the time I need to make them happen. The 4 week trial will actually be a trial for my own business stuff, to see how well I can cope working from home by being routined and disciplined about it, to achieve the results I want. Although I think what I have planned, will take more than 4 weeks to get off the ground .
I feel there are so many books in me that I have to get out while I am alive. Two are especially important and an absolute must, so I have already started to type one of those up! And trying to get it out asap.
My Quirky Academy is going to be an online training centre for entrepreneurs, start-ups and creatives, and I have started the foundation of correct web set-up for that. I have just obtained my independent IP address for my sites, instead of being on shared hosting, and an SSL certificate for Quirky Academy and two other sites, so I can have secure shopping carts on them. One of those sites is my own Quirky Books e-book store – I have waited over 6 years to convert that site into an e-book store and have much to learn.
So life for me right now, is about to become an unstable rollercoaster of an adventure, one full of optimism, musts, and action taking. One in which I aim to keep a positive mindset, to go achieve my dreams.
Wish me to get my dream, as I will always wish you to get yours.
P.S. If you are also facing redundancy or know someone who is, you will find my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book a great buy, packed full of useful information on wellbeing, mindset, applying for jobs, with CV and Cover letter templates, that so far this third time around, has got me a 100% response rate to my direct job applications.
Redundancy – Destiny Wants Something Different For Me! Inspirational Poem By Sandra Bellamy!
Redundancy has come around once again, so what is it, I am meant to be doing then?
Destiny wants something different for me. I even want something different for me, and in fact I see, what I am really meant to be, I see my purpose, but do I see it fully?
No wish or want is going to get me where I need to be, it’s about taking action, continuously.
I wish I did not need money to pay the bills, that I had enough to live on and I could write away, but this is not my current situation, not tomorrow, and not today!
I cry at losing a job I love, I have to work my consultation period, which is agonising enough, then I have to search for something I don’t want to do, and lose seeing colleagues I like, too.
But destiny wants something different for me, something better, something amazing, that now, is not a reality. It wants my dream, it wants to push me to my limits like a laser beam. It wants to tell me to stop doing what I do, that you are meant for more, you know you want to. You want to be famous, you want to be a leader, you want to be a speaker, you want to be a writer. You want to be you. Nothing else will do. But if you stay as you are, you may not go as far, as you would, if you could, if you were forced, you should – do what you are meant to do, and let the whole world know it too.
Destiny has something better for me, even though I currently feel in agony.
Destiny knows what it wants me to do, now be bold, be brave, you have to.
Destiny wants something better for me and so do I, so on a wing and a prayer, I will fly high. I will push myself to reach the sky.
Destiny wants something better for me and so do I. So stop the cry. Because destiny wants something better for me and a better destiny, it will be!!
You Could Change In A Heartbeat If You Wanted To, But I Know You Won’t Change Because It Is Too Much Hard Work For You, And That Won’t Do!
When Work Shows Up, You Flinch Away, Although You Work Hard In Your Job, Every Day.
You Never Stop To Think, About A Meaningful Life; Beyond What You Are Used To. Because To Think Like That Is Scary, And You Would Rather Live In Fear And Be Weary!
You Never Stop For One Moment And Considered, You Could Have Everything You Ever Dreamed Of, If You Hadn’t Dithered, And Gone Back To Your Old Ways, What A Waste Of Days.
It’s A Waste Of Time; Of Love, It’s A Crime!
Maybe One Day You Will Look Back At What You Did, You Will Feel Sorry That It’s Me You Went To Hid.
You Will One Day Find Out That These Other Girls Never Cared About You, Then What Will You Do?
You Will Keep Getting Older And None The Wiser, You Will Keep Being A Coward Without An Advisor.
But I Also See Braveness In You, And How Far You Have Come Too.
But The Thing You Are Most Afraid Of, The Lonliness That Will Lead To Despair, Will Be There.
Still I Wish You Well, I Wish All My Love For You Will Impress Upon Your Heart, Some New Found Meaning, Even Though You Pushed Us Apart.
I Wish For You The Best, Even Though I Find It Hard To Rest.
I Find It Hard To Let You Go, But You’ve Already Moved On Without A Care, I Know!
Even Though You Gave Up Easily, Can’t You See, I Was So Good For You, Even Though You Weren’t For Me!
If You Actually Knew How Your Behaviour Affected Me, If You Were In My Position, Would You See?
You Could Change In A Heartbeat If You Wanted To, But I Know That Is Something You Will Never Do!
I believe you have the power to change your life, those of others, and the world around you!!!
I recently wrote a quote on Facebook:
“You don’t need to put a chip in your brain to have super powers, all of the super powers are already within you, they just need unlocking” – Quote by Sandra Bellamy
A lot of people don’t realise that all of the will power, intuition, determination and resources to succeed are already within you. You have to have a can-do, nothing will stop you attitude. When everyone else is saying, ‘can’t’, you need to ask ‘how?’ and start to work it out. That is why the journey is more important than the destination, because of all the life lessons, skills and experience you pick up along the way, on the road to your dreams!!
If you could change the world, what would you do??
Don’t neglect it!
Don’t refuse to see it!
Don’t choose not to believe it.
Live it, love it, run with it!
Because life is way too short to not allow yourself to try something out. If nothing else, you will learn an important lesson on the journey of life!!
