Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve had time to actually sit down and blog and it feels great since there has been so much on my mind of late and I really wanted to share it all with you. It’s best if I just dive right in. My employment contract was terminated (in March) from the Law firm that I was working for for the last year or so. I think it had a lot to do with me always being sick and somewhat unreliable because of my awful endometriosis so even though at the time I was quite upset, I understand now that it wasn’t the easiest for my employers to deal with. In a way I’m glad that they made that decision.
I wasn’t going to be out of work at all, in fact I had three other jobs lined up and waiting for me from my recruiter but I knew that before accepting any of them, I wanted to take time off and learn more about my illness and how to control it so that people couldn’t use it against me. It literally took a few days of being unemployed for me to realise that it was time to work for myself, full time. It was the only way I could justify being off sick for so long because I didn’t have the strength to get out of bed and not feel guilty about it. I needed a job that could work around my illness.
For a long time I wanted to be knee-deep in my business ventures, but the fear of not having a salary and getting paid a large sum every month deterred me for a very long time but you know what they say? Fight the fear and do it anyway. I came to realise that working for myself would be the only way that life would become more gratifying for me. I had no real plan nor real savings to support me – I just did it.
