I had a freaking AWESOME day at work today. I was mainly on my own, while my colleague was busy elsewhere - but I had to do a school talk for primary school children… But, I only really know how to speak to university-level students about crabs and starfish.
To cut a long story short, I found my inner 5-year-old and had a laugh with them. They had such an awesome time and I was really proud that they left the centre knowing information that I just taught them :) the ego-boost is exactly what I needed and I got on with the day with a smile!
Me and my best friend have also been speaking about my time in South Africa (remember, that trip is the reason this blog is here!) If you go right back to the beginning of my blog, all the diary entries are there! I got really emotional looking through the photo’s! I’m such a changed person since then, I take things way too personally and I get in stresses easily and I’m less confident now. What the hell changed??
So, time to adopt a new attitude (yet again). I’m going to do everything to the best of my ability, find my inner 5-year-old a few more times just for the hell of it, and keep on thinking of the care-free Hollie that I was in 2010. Just as a reminder, here is a picture of the happiest and scariest moment of my life, and just look at how naturally happy I am :-)
