I have officially been working as a Celebrant 1 year this month.
It has been a year (well 18 months) of a lot of changes in my life. The closure of my last business (a Recruitment agency), two training courses for Family and Funeral Celebrancy and the start of my new career.
I have learned to much over the last year and the help I have had from various people is something that I truly appreciate.
There have been times when I have questioned if it was worth it. When I have hoping for a cheque to clear quickly through the bank, when I have had to check my petrol gauge to see how far I can travel and when I have had to turn down social events because I simply have not had the spare cash to attend.
I have had job offers, back in recruitment, that have made me stop at times and think … but .. in my heart I know I am doing the right thing by continuing as a Celebrant. It is something that I truly enjoy and take great pride in. It is what I was born to do and I am so lucky that I did accidentally stumble across it.
A year in and my reputation is growing. I am being requested by people who have seen my work and for me that is the greatest honour I could receive.
Here is to the next year!
