Well, yet again its been ages since ive updated on here.....its been a very mentally busy month since i last posted
In summary ive decided to take back control of my brain and life and ive left my position as GSF branch manager at Trafford Park Manchester. It is a great company to work for and a great bunch of guys at my old branch, but i wasnt enjoying it anymore, and mentally if i was honest with myself (which eventually i was), it was taking more out of me than it was giving back. Overall i have been running on empty for quite a while now, so its time i took control and got myself back on track.
i used to be more "mentally available"...meaning i actually listened when people spoke to me, i put more time into my own wellbeing etc. The thing with being overly stressed or run down is that you live in a perpetual state of "brain hurry" so although your in the room, your only really half there at best. Looking back i had a different approach to everything and i was very "in the moment" This is what im going to try and get back. For my health's sake
At the start of 2013. I have a new role to take on at Andrew Page (motor factors) as branch/distribution centre manager in Oldham Gt Manchester, where i live. It is a lot closer to home and signals a fresh start for the new year. It promises to be more suited to my operational management background, and is handily only a few minutes from home
.....so fingers crossed it works out fine....which im sure it will. Outside of work i am going to get back to the gym with our son James, and spend time each night winding down before going to bed...if i dont take this step now i fear i will end up in a box by the time im 50
The xm will also form a great project to pour creative time into without it being "work"
Im looking forward to 2013 being the year of reclamation.......plenty of car shows, and a few Pallas jobs
Hope you all have a great christmas and have a great 2013.....no doubt i will meet up with some of you along the way
Keep Citroening folks.....
P.s. I get a company car with my new position, at first i think ive got a Megane to use, but hopefully there will be a Citroen available....? A C6 would be nice
