First Job Excitement

Hi everyone 🙂

This is the most positive of blog posts!

I am so happy to tell everyone I have finally got my first job.

Since I was 18 & suffered my most severe relapse I have never been well enough to work, not even part-time. In the spring of this year I decided I was ready to start applying for part-time positions. I have applied to alot of places with no luck, probably due to the fact I am 23 with zero experience apart from volunteer work here and there. It was very disheartening to keep getting rejections.

I kept praying that someone would see potential & just give me a chance. I will prove myself.

Luckily, I had an interview at Waitrose earlier in the year but there was nothing suitable at the time. (I still wanted to be mindful to not have a job which would exert too much energy). Anyway, they kept me in mind & have now offered me a position one day a week.

All my friends & family know Waitrose is where I have wanted to work for a long time, I feel so thankful & lucky to have a job there.

I think one of the things I have missed & craved most about ‘normal life’ is being independent & having a job. I have watched all my friends graduate from University & go out into the world & find jobs & stand on their own two feet.

This is such a huge deal for me, I am so excited for this next chapter of my recovery & my life! When I get that Waitrose uniform on, I will 100% cry. It’s been a tough road & I have fought it & to have my first day will be very emotional. Onwards & upwards little fighters. WOOHOOO

I am in training today & tomorrow & I officially have my first day on Thursday 🙂

A huge thank you to all my friends & family who have helped me to get to this point. I am incredibly blessed to have amazing people in my life who support & help me with everything.

Without them I wouldn’t be at this point, in good enough health, to open the next chapter.

On a completely separate note. I love my sister.
