Taking a leap of faith

When I received that email saying I had been redundant, my whole heart sank and I had a sudden rush of panic come over me. That day I went for a long walk around the beautiful Sussex countryside. The first 10 minutes I remember crying uncontrollably, then I said to myself out loud '' Pull yourself together its only a job'' I may have lost my job but I am fortunate have a wonderful family, my health and a lovely home. So I changed my mindset and looked to the positives, instead of dwelling on the past.

I had put the wheels in motion about looking to organise a community CPR workshop, in which I teach local communities in Sussex and Surrey how to perform CPR and use the Defibrillator for free. So in that 1 hour and 15 minute walk I came up with the plan to make that idea into a reality, and start my own business teaching first aid and first aid for mental health. When I got home I remember my husband, Richard saying to me ''are you ok?'' with a worried expression, then I turned round and said ''Its all fine, I know what I'm going to do! I'm going to start my own business and teach certified First aid courses.'' He must of thought I was crazy to leave the house upset and come home all motivated and excited. I am such a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, in 2020 I was

destined to hang up my Virgin Atlantic heels and take a leap of faith.
