Lifestyle, Wednesday Words



I’ve missed my Wednesday Words posts, have you? Life got a little crazy and I didn’t get around to doing them. Β But never fear, I’m back on track this week.

Do you believe in yourself? Believe in your abilities and talents? I never used to. A lot of people would say I am a confident gal, but underneath a tough exterior, I am really quite shy and get nervous very easily. So when a new opportunityΒ  came my way late last month I nervously made the phone call to enquire and had a quick chat with a lovely lady and we decided to meet the next day with a proposal. Yikes!! I hadn’t applied for a job for 12 years! I was so nervous. I knew I could do it, but could I promote myself and show her I could do it? But this was a job I wanted. Like a kid in a candy store wanting all of the candies kinda of wanted – you get my drift? It’s my dream job and these kind of jobs don’t come up in Wagga very often. I wanted it oh so bad!

The job was for a Social Marketing Manager for a local building company.

And I got it.


I can’t wait for Friday to roll around each week and to get down to the new office. I’ve been designing window posters and brochures (thanks to Canva – if your blogger and haven’t checked that out yet, you really should!), maintaining and updating their website, setting up Pinterest and pinning pretty pictures, diving in to their Facebook analytics and seeing what has been working and what hasn’t and lots of other fun things. Things that I do every night for my blog, but now I get paid for it. How cool is that?

Its pretty awesome I can tell you!

Believe in yourself. Believe that you have the talents and abilities for that job you’ve been lusting after. Believe that you can be the solution to someone else’s problem. Believe that better things are out there, you don’t even have to wait for it to slap you in the face, go out there and create your own opportunities.

Believe you can so you do!! Theres no looking back once you have that belief in yourself. x
