People Said No But The Universe Said Yes!
When I became pregnant I was looking forward to having my little girl. I had a very good pregnancy and I enjoyed my maternity leave. I bonded so much with my daughter I didn’t want to leave her but I knew I had to go back to work. Especially since my daughter’s father was being unreliable.
I decided I wanted to go back to work part time because of my change of lifestyle (becoming a mother) and for health reasons. I had a really good job and when they told me they could not accommodate my request to come back part-time I was disheartened and worried about what I was going to do for the future. I did not want to go back full-time. So I prayed that everything was going to work out and handed my notice in.
I signed up to a recruitment agency to help find me a job as well as searching the net. People were telling me to just to get a job in a department store. That I wasn’t going to have a career as a part time mum. I was not going to listen to that though. I did not believe the things they were trying to tell me. Even the recruitment agency said they do not usually get part-time permanent roles. But I did not lose hope!
A couple of months after signing up I got a call for not one, but two part-time management roles! And I got one! And in this part-time job the hours and the pay was better! I am so grateful for my job. The people are lovely here; I really believe this was meant for me. This has encouraged me to keep on believing and holding onto my hopes and dreams. There is so much more that I want for myself. With each thought that comes to fruition, I gain more faith and confidence.
I wish you all the best with your dreams! I hope I come back to share more!
