The June Review

Syon Park Foodies Festival

I'm writing this one very late. Lately the days have blurred beyond belief and I don't know whether I'm coming or going at the moment!

On the plus side, I had some lovely days out last month - highlights included a sunny day out at a Street Food Festival in Syon Park, a fabulous night out watching Drag mother and daughter Alyssa Edwards and Shangela werk it at the Clapham Grand, terrible karaoke with my work team, a boat trip from Richmond and a lovely day brunching and sipping cocktails for a friend's birthday. 

Cue the rambling section of the post...

After months of focusing on small day to day changes, I was adamant that June was the month where I'd make a big life change. Clearly, I haven't quite managed to take that leap of faith just yet - I know what I want to do, but it's taking me a little longer to act on - and maybe that's ok.  Do you have any tips or ways of coping when you're feeling stuck in a rut?

I realised how quickly we doubt ourselves - our minds could be made up but it just takes one person to pick a hole in a plan and you'll be racing back to the familiar. I never want to feel arrogant enough to dismiss the advice of friends or family but I am starting to think that whilst listening to others can be very useful, sometimes you just have to go with your gut.  

July is about asking myself some tough questions and weighing up all my options so whatever move I make will at least be carefully considered and thought through.

I am also very conscious of not wanting to wish time away so I hope to make the most of the beautiful weather London has been enjoying - lots of park days, walks and browsing London markets with an iced latte in hand. What are you most looking forward to in July?

  1. Make that change! I started a new job about two months ago and I was so worried and nervous at first. But after my first week, I got over it and...take that leap of faith!

  2. I know you're right, Rasha! It's nerve wracking but I think I'm getting closer to making my move. Very glad to hear you got over the nerves and are settling into the new role :)
