I am in a strange place as of late.
I am happy, I know this, I have an amazing partner (who is truly my best friend) and his family, and although we don’t always see eye to eye, I have a family. I have two jobs, one is a ‘gets-you-by’ kind of thing which pays most of my bills, the other is my fledgling dream, growing day by day. I have a nice home. I am healthy.
And yet, part of me is not happy, because I am lonely. I have no ‘true’ friends as such, that is aside from my partner (don’t get me wrong, I love my friendship with him, but a gal needs her own friends too). Friends who wish to hang out, know what I am up to, chat for a while. Anything really. Friends I used to have have simply grown apart, we all live different lives now.
Sometimes I ponder this situation and think that perhaps I should give up the search for friends here, maybe I am searching too hard and I should just let it go and be content with my life as it is.
I got some amazing news this week - I was invited to join Notonthehighstreet.com! these guys choose small British businesses and help them grow, but they are super picky about who they choose, and I never thought they’d accept me, so I didn’t apply. So imagine my shock to be invited to join! I am going to get together the sign up money and go for it, it can only mean good things for my little shop; and my future. My dream of escaping my graveyard shift, being my own boss and living off my creativity is coming a little bit closer each day!
