Three Years Back

December 19th, 2019 marked three years since I moved back to Swindon. In this time my life has been a bit of a whirl wind in terms of how much change has occurred. Some of it has been good, some of the change was bad at the time, however it has all provided me with the opportunity to learn and grow as a person. Examples of this include the multiple temporary jobs I took on to keep myself employed, returning to the leisure industry and seeing how different operators run their facilities and starting to write blogs. I also trained at different gyms before finding Battleground Fitness. Had it not been for the support and positive atmosphere of Battleground Fitness I may not have gained the confidence to take part in a weightlifting competition as before Battleground, my training had reached a deep plateau and I was only training because I always have. I didn’t have any real goals and was going through the motions. This had coincided with one of the deepest relapses of mental illness that I have had.
I have lived in five different parts of England in my life; York, Weston Super Mare, Swindon, Louth and Grimsby. Each area has taught me different lessons and shaped me into the person I am today. Can I rule out relocating again? No, although I want to settle down, I cannot say that if I was offered a promotion which meant another relocation, I would reject it. What I can say though is that I have no plans to relocate again.
