Sunday roasts

I don't like to feel as though I am asking too much of you.
My reflex is to want to crawl back into myself as I cringe at my own unintentional selfishness.
I thought it was ok to want.
To need.
Desire.
I am not starving but somehow satisfaction sits just out of reach and I am forced to consume more and more.
I know that you love and care.
Know that you are not turned off by the sight of me gorging myself hungrily on you.
But.
I am conscious.
Do not want to smother, cover or suffocate you.
I give almost all of myself and sometimes find that I am unable to decipher the beginnings and ending of our intertwined lives.
Sometimes I just need a little remind.
Then equilibrium is restored and all is right.
For a while at least.
SOAP Blogging on the go...

Resolution-ary

This year I have one, solitary resolution.
It will change my life, I am convinced.

Wear. More. Heels.

I will do this for 2 reasons...

1 - They make me feel, walk and look better.

2 - They make it difficult for me to run after people that I am not prepared to take them off for.

New beginnings

I was reminded this week that I hadn’t blogged since November and took that as a silent instruction to add some content.

A lot has happened in the past couple of months and in amongst that I have gained a new niece (I already have 3 nieces and 2 nephews) and have also left my job on 4thn Jan.

The decision to leave my job wasn’t an easy one and many a dialogue (both internal and external) went on to make sure that it was the right one and though I am still unemployed I am not yet worried. I have worked in accounting for the past 11 years and while I do enjoy it and am good at it I wanted to take the successes of the last year and the experience that I have gathered over the past 5 years and use it to propel myself into a new and currently uncomfortable zone.

Outside of my day job I have always done events based work for friends, for myself and also in a small part for my previous employer. I enjoy this very much and taking the leap to give it a go has come at a very natural point in my life that I can only assume God has led me to.

This year I will be working very hard to increase the services and successes of Purple Hill (www.purple-hill.co.uk) my Event Planning and Artist Assistance Company as well as looking for my first Events/Marketing full time job. I will also be heading the Oxjam Shoreditch Festival Team again and we will be working very hard to bring you a better and more exciting event this year. I think that I will end up with my fingers in many pies this year but I am prepared and excited for all of the ups and downs and learning’s and successes.

If you or anyone you know would like to discuss the things that I have mentioned above then please do get in contact at Natalie@purple-hill.co.uk.
