A NEW CHAPTER

25 November 2017 Birmingham, UK


I've finally found a job I'm very excited to sink my teeth into and also something that is very much routed in my heart. Menswear has been, and always will be, my passion and it's something I plan on chasing to the ends of the earth. Which is why i'm SO happy to share with you all that I've been offered a new role as an Assistant Designer! This new chapter of my life could spark big change and it's something I'm really excited for. I'll have my evenings back, and also my weekends (so I can spend time with my nearest and dearest) and hopefully start to feel a little more self-fulfilled. It's easy to become 'comfortable' with your current situation and it's something I've very much experienced. 

Stepping outside the world that is retail is a daunting prospect, especially when it's something i've unfortunately become very used to. When I posted my 'where have I been?' post a lot of you responded and said that I shouldn't feel alone when sitting in a bit of a life rut and after that response, I most definitely felt supported by all of you so thank you, from the bottom of my heart. However, it left me wondering what other contributing factors also added to my delicate mental state at that time. 


As I said, it's daunting stepping outside my comfort zone or something i'm used to, but it's a challenge  and one i'm more than willing to face. For SO long I have craved routine and working in retail has in no way helped that. For days, months, weeks I have craved what would seem to many as a normal life; working Monday - Friday 9-5 or at least working more regulated hours so I can plan my free time more efficiently. 

That factor ties heavily into my personal life and also my mental health. For so long after I finished university, I worked scattered shifts and the little free time I had, didn't align with anybody else's, which is why I have craved so much for change. 

I've worked SO hard to make this happen and I'm suuuuper excited to start what could potentially be a new chapter of my life. I very much looking forward to sharing some of that chapter with you all and seeing where this adventure takes me but for now, wish me luck! 

Are any of you starting a new job soon? Or have you recently started a new position? I'd love to hear from any of you in a similar position!
