I'm smiling as I write this. I've just read my post three years ago, titled "I left." I wrote that two days after I had packed up my house and flown 2000 miles away to Sydney with my little boy. I had kept my move a secret from all my friends and family. Only my husband knew I was leaving. I didn't want anyone to attempt to stop me. I had some very dark times back then. The hardest times of my life, without doubt.
Reflecting on how far I've come since I first joined the board makes me feel pretty happy.
I flew to Bali last week, a celebration of the news that I'd got a new job! I have been on the lookout to move up the ladder in my career, and have just managed to secure a great new position. The money is fantastic, the location is awesome. I am stoked.
I've just finished my first unit in a postgraduate (work experience allowed me to skip the degree) at Notre Dame University in Western Australia - Grad Dip in Business. I don't know my exam results yet, but I received a HD for my major assignment. :-)
To top it off, I've started seeing a guy I went to school with. Freaking gorgeous, intelligent and pretty damn awesome.
How is this all happening? I never could have dreamed it up back when I first took tentative steps away from the witnesses.
Life is GOOD.
