If ever there was a week when I wanted to reach through the interwebs and give a big group hug, this week has been it.

I’ve been so touched by messages that you guys have sent this week following my no-holds-barred admission of being in a bit of transition at the minute.  As it turns out, I’m not the only one and I feel really privileged that you shared your current wobbles with me…

Some of you said that it helped to hear that you weren’t on your own and so a few are bravely letting me share their words with the gang:

“I feel like I’ve lost a piece of myself and I don’t know where it’s gone”

“I sometimes feel like I blend into the background now, just someone’s mummy.”

“What happened to me?  I used to be so driven and knew what I wanted and I’m progressing at work but, over the past 6 months or so, it’s all felt so empty to me.  But the problem is I don’t actually know what I want instead.”

“I’m still the same person, with all the same hopes for what I want.  And now I’ve got a baby that hasn’t changed… but I’ve definitely lost a bit of confidence since I’ve been away from work.”

How do you feel reading those words?  I’m sure you’re like me and just want to rally round and cheerlead these beauties on.  One thing I know for sure…

YOU ARE SUPPORTED

That is, if you ask for it.  What I’ve seen over the past week is that people want to help and support and cheer you on.  People are good, they care.

And so, I want to return the favour. I’m planning a live Cocktail Hour Q&A.  Bring your tipple of choice and your burning question and let’s chat.

Tuesday 12th July, 8pm BST
