I’m not one to pat myself on the back ever.
I always think I’m not doing enough, being enough, or trying as hard as other people.
I talk a lot about my job. It’s the hardest, challenging, most amazing role I’ve ever been in. There’s tears, there’s laughs, there’s listening to a persons story, there’s informing people about things I’d want to know and then there’s plenty of jokes about bloody 5 metre long pythons 🐍 and crocs in the middle of the street 🐊
But for two months in a row now, my colleagues have voted me as News Star of the Month. And so I guess instead of this constant battle with myself about how useless I think I am, it’s time to start not being afraid about harnessing the skills I have and continuing the work I’m doing.
I’m not for everyone. Some people probably turn my bulletins off, some people probably hate the sound of my voice, but I hope others cry when I cry, laugh when I laugh and learn something new everyday.
2019, you’ve been a year. ❤️
