Hey I’m Caitliń-rose, you may recall my last post about Crystals.
Today I’m going to talk about a major life change I’ve undertaken… Moving to York!
I moved up from my hometown (the absolutely amazing Liverpool which I will always love) to the stunning city of York around the second week of September, my main reason for moving was to make the most of a brilliant opportunity offered to me by Shared Earth, to progress into a full time role, and also to satisfy my wanderlust, I adore travelling! Conveniently, the tenancy on my flat was coming to an end anyway so it seemed like it was just meant to be!
I worked in the Liverpool branch for over two years and I enjoyed every second, I met some of the best people around (co-workers and customers who soon became regulars too!) and they will always hold a special place in my heart… As my family are mainly based in Liverpool, I do get to visit a lot which I love doing and I always make sure to pop in to the Liverpool store to see how everyone is and catch up.
I was very lucky to be made so welcome by the extremely friendly folk at the York store so thankfully settled to the new work environment quite well, and I’m just about settled into the city (I’m still not too good with directions to anywhere though!). I now have my regulars here too!
I work mostly in our new store ‘Elysium’, which I manage… It’s a lovely little Spiritual store that has such a relaxed, calming atmosphere and as it’s our more Holistic store, I definitely feel at home! When I think of my Shared Earth journey, it really has been one of the best things I’ve ever done, in March 2014 when I gave in my completed volunteer application form and within the week started volunteering, I would have never in a million years thought I’d be where I am now!
York is such a quaint, beautiful city and everyday I see so many tourists, who’ve came from near and far to see the wonderful sights that I see all the time, I do feel extremely blessed and thankful to have been given this opportunity. Thank you again Shared Earth!
