Why am I already crying before I even start typing this?
It’s been exactly a year since I walked out of my city finance job. The quickest year of life ever. There’s nothing more lonely than making a life-changing decision all on your own. So, mummy, this is for you. Thank you for coming round and seeing life from my point of view. And thank you for cheering me on at every point- for being my biggest fan. It’s so obvious how much you love what I do when you try and fail to do your ‘Mirror Me poses’. For leaving important meetings to come support me at a shoot, for helping me shut down every opportunity that was set up to take advantage of me, for staying on the phone with me in awkward situations until I didn’t feel awkward anymore, for being my voice of reason, for listening to my tears silently when lost opportunities broke my heart and for making me realise during my moments of doubt that I could stop trying to justify my decision to myself and to you- because you already believed in me. Even for giving me the most grief about being a little overweight because you know how happy slim makes me. Lol.
Thank you for your unwavering support.
If I had known that you would ride for me so hard this year then maybe I wouldn’t have had a panic attack and broken down in tears in the toilets right before I handed in my key card.
Nobody will ever know how hard the year has been for you, because you curve every ball thrown at us with such incredible tekkers. Thank you for teaching me to be a fighter.
I love you. I love you so very much. And I can’t wait to work from the glass office across the hall from yours.
Please support your children. Nothing matters more.
