One door closes, another one opens.

I really do have total faith that when one chapter closes in our lives a new one is ready to begin. We just have to be willing to travel the first page.

Today Simon started his new job. Since the end of last year he been in a bit of a defunct in his old position. He had lost the passion for what he was doing and felt under a lot of pressure. I completely knew how he felt, since this time last year I felt exactly the same way! The only difference was that there were quite a few jobs out there as a nurse for me. For Simon, as a marketing professional in Golf, the jobs were very very limited.


For the last couple of months he has been to many interviews. Some he was very hopeful about and others he was let down by. But the more he tried the more I had belief that he would find something that suited him.

And at the beginning of March he did it. He's now the marketing sales director for not only golf, but in charge of sales for a hotel complex, a race course and weddings/events. It's a real step up and I am BEYOND PROUD of him.

I just got off the phone from him after his first day. It was so good to hear the excitement in his voice again. Well done Si! You're living proof that perseverance pays off and that by not giving up you were able to close one door and open another...to a whole new world of possibilities.

You did it!

Congrats! My oldest got his degree in marketing, but is building kayaks. The sad thing is that he's making more money doing that than he would if he had found a job in marketing. As an added plus: he absolutely loves what he's doing. That's what it's all about, right?
