You are amazing, you are brave, you are strong and you will move on

18 Apr

Hi everyone I hope you all had a amazing Easter weekend and got to eat lots of yummy chocolates and eggs.

I have been debating for nearly a week now on whether or not I want to share this news on my blog. I’ve decided to share it as my blog is my outlet and perhaps by putting it down in words will help me move forward in the next part of my life.

As you may or may not know. I’ve been working for my local branch of Wilko’s for almost ten years. Its a job I love very much working with some fantastic people and of course meeting so many lovely customers throughout my time.

However last week we were informed that our branch will be closing. That obviously means for many of us we are facing redundancy. I’m not going to go into the details but due to my own circumstances, transport etc I will be leaving the company on August 19th 2017 just shy of my ten year service.

I love my job its been amazing, and don’t want my store to close. I’m told its final so I must now focus on the future. So I must stay strong and work on tomorrow.

I now have to decide what I want to do. I’m going to look around and see what my options are. Perhaps I will re-train in something completely different and I will find a new vocation in life. Perhaps I will be left on the breadline struggling to get by?

I would really appreciate any words of wisdom. Any suggestions on what and where to go from here would be amazing.

I’ve already started building my cupboards back up with essential staples so I know we have food built up for a while. If I don’t find new work straight away at least I don’t have to worry about everyone being hungry.

Its also been nearly 10 years since I had an interview. Hopefully I wont be an utter disaster when it comes to being interviewed……..
