I had big ideas for getting back into HR in an authentic, value add way, removing complexity for managers and being relevant and tailored to business challenges, especially with smaller companies, that may not afford permanent HR and will appreciate the input they may not have ever had before. And not long after I put that out there, the opportunities came to me….
So now I’m working on a full-time and part-time HR contract for two companies who need and value my support, which is fabulous and feels great! It’s a bit chaotically busy, but I’m loving it, it’s fun and I get to work with great people.
I wanted to continue growing the coaching side of my business, but due to limited time and the need to focus on financially viable projects right now, coaching will take a back seat for a short time, but as I love coaching, it won’t be for long, and I will find some creative ways to incorporate everything I love to do.
I felt disappointed at myself for not keeping up with regular blogging, but I’m thrilled that work is taking a direction that is fulfilling and rewarding. So this too will have to take a back seat, as long I dip my toe in now and again.
My message to myself, is when I realise that I can’t do everything, don’t despair, do the things that really matter, don’t let myself go down a rabbit hole, keep looking up and tap into areas that have may have been neglected, even if it’s briefly and not perfect.
After all, that’s ‘the art of life’, not controlling everything in your path, go with the flow when needed, keeping moving forwards, stay positive, look at the big picture and do the things that are important. Not afraid to change direction, take a break, don’t view it as failure, give yourself a pat on the back for the small achievements. And most of all enjoy and have fun!
So far so good and I’m very happy with that.
