Do you know when I said 2020 will be the year I would achieve big things? Well its happening. It’s the 20th February 2020 (20.02.20) 22:22 (my angel numbers at the moment by the way, i’ll explain later) and I am totally Overwhelmed. In the good sense of the word.
Today, my managers informed me that they were nominating me for the hospitality’s 30 under 30s. It’s an award which recognises managers under 30 for their hard work and dedication to the sector.
I don’t know if I mentioned before but I began my hospitality journey in the Richardson Suite at WBA I actually hated it there because of the manager. Then I moved to the boxes and absolutely loved it. The crazy thing is, my Grandad supported WBA, he said he got off the plane from Jamaica into the Hawthorns. I’ll explain later lol. My bae played for them at the time but at reserve level I believe. For it to then be the birthplace of my whole career and I didn’t even know it, is wild to me.
So today, being an Operations Manager of thee best hotel full service hotel in Birmingham makes me so proud. Yes we have stats to prove it ;).
Sorry for the digression but It wouldn’t be my blog without a side story lol.
This nomination has really overwhelmed me. I listened to my role models say such lovely, heart warming things about me. So lovely that when I got home I just cried. Real tears of joy. I’m not even an emotional person. I just cried because I couldn’t believe the person they were writing about was me. Another tear dropped writing this. It’s just that its second nature to me to look after people and have fun whilst doing it, so to be recognised not only for my hard work but because of the person I am, really overwhelmed me.
Honestly, the managers I have around me and that got me to this point are the very reason why I am the way I am. I owe them so much. Most of which are STRONG women who I truly admire.
I am Grateful.
Those that know me, know how much I genuinely love my job. It’s true what they say do something you love and never work a day in your life. That is how I feel, even when my alarm goes off at 5:30am and when I get home after midnight some nights. I could not even be shortlisted but to even be considered is a huge win for me.
My angel number that I keep seeing. 22 is a powerful sign from your angels that you are on purpose in life and about to turn your dreams into reality. Coincidence? I think not. Lol.
Pay attention to numbers guys! I’m not sure my nan would have approved but they mean something lol. I know my guardian angel would be so proud of me right now.
I miss you...
Thank You ...
