For Niamh

To be honest, it’s easy to be bitter and angry at the moment.  Losing your job is never easy, and losing it suddenly and not because you weren’t performing is extra difficult.  However, I’m trying to focus on the silver lining.  And it is bountiful.  Perhaps the best thing to come out of this situation is a renewed connection with my passion for what I do, and that comes down to you, the people who have sent me messages over the last week.

Sometimes they have been hard to read.  Some people are angry, and feel they were deceived by the way we left the station.  Some people are just kind and wish me well.  And some people are beautifully honest about hard times, and how listening to someone being a bit of an idiot on the radio has made things a little bit easier for them.  Thank you so much.  So much.  Because I think I had forgotten why my job is important, and that it is important at all.  Now I’ve remembered, I have a renewed commitment to it which is exactly what I needed because in a situation like this it’s easy to get down on yourself.  Confidence is low at times, as any of you who have been in this situation will understand.  But the next time I’m feeling like I’m useless I will reread the messages you have sent and remember that there is a purpose, and that I have a purpose and that I need to persevere!  Someone needs to rap on the radio!  There just isn’t enough of that these days…

So, that’s that for the serious talk today, but thanks again.  I have always been honest with you on the show, and will continue to be honest with you here.

Enjoy standing cat.


Louise xoxo
