Made Redundant at 23

Those are a few words I never thought I would see in the same sentence...but there they are.

I was made redundant on Friday last week. I'm still in shock a bit because it really did come out of nowhere. Fear and anxiety spread through me like wild fire- "what am I going to do?!"

The longer I sat with that fact, the more it made sense for the universe to push me in this direction. It was becoming increasingly obvious I wasn't going to change my path on my own.

I am still scared, but I know that this is going to be a good thing for me. I am seeing this as an opportunity to actually do what I've always dreamed of doing- and that is to sell my art. I am also working on an e-course on using art as therapy which I am so excited about. It's something I have been doing on my own for years!

I feel like this post should be longer than it is. Like I should have more to say but I guess there isn't much else. Maybe in days to come I will write more about it but I'm going to focus all my time and energy into launching my Etsy shop, improving this blog and writing my e-course so who knows. We will see.

P.S: If you know of any jobs going feel free to email me :)



  1. Awesome example in your attitude Rizzles. You are a star. This could be the start of awesome new things! :D

  2. Hey Riz, I know it sucks right now, but everything happens for a reason. You probably know this deep in there. You're in a great headspace right now to challenge yourself and move in an exciting new direction. Good luck!
