Day 3: Happy World Otter Day!

Fact about me: My favourite animal is an Otter. When I see one, I can’t contain my excitement that I drop to my knees & bury my face in my hands.

What I loved today:

  • I love Otters, and today is World Otter Day, so by default, it’s a very good day.

What I learned today:

  • Facebook Advertising is not so easy. My work put me on one of their courses today, Facebook for Business, it was a short, quick intro to the world of Facebook Ads – and let me tell you – I needed WAY more than a 1/2 day to learn everything that Facebook is capable of doing. Despite walking away from it and realising I am NOT an expert, I am inspired to be an expert. I have a long way to go, but all of this training is leading me on my path to what I want to do one day, which is hopefully run my own Social Media Agency. What?! Did I just put my dream out there for the world to see! Oh shit.

Some tough decisions:

  • Something has been playing on my mind a lot in the last month, and I’ve been changing my mind back and forth. Today I finally made a decision, and even after making it, I keep crying about it. I am moving back in with my parents. 5 years ago, when my marriage fell apart, I moved back in with them because I didn’t have any other options, I didn’t have a full-time job so I couldn’t afford rent by myself, I was also very depressed so couldn’t live alone. 2 & 1/2 years ago I moved into my apartment with my ex-boyfriend, it was a fresh start, but that relationship soon soured, and I’ve been single ever since (2 years). I’ve lived in this apartment with a flatmate until 6 months ago when they moved out, I have been alone ever since. It’s not that I don’t have options now, it’s that I feel incredibly overwhelmed, and I need to take a temporary step backwards. I can also save $1200 a fortnight if I do this, and that is incredibly appealing to me right now. A part of me feels like my independence will disappear, but I think what the last 3 weeks have taught me, is that I’m allowed to feel hurt, I’m allowed to experience setbacks, and I can come to mature decisions in the face of those setbacks, instead of self-destructive ones. Resetting is fine, as long as each time you do, you learn from it.

I’m excited to learn more again.
