Anyone who saw my Stories yesterday will know what happened - I went along to an industry awards do (think of it like the Oscars for the Search Industry) as a friends plus one, only to leave several hours later with the top award - which unbeknownst to me, I had been nominated and selected for by a massive respected jury of my peers.
I am so overwhelmed and grateful - I struggle to accept praise and have real self confidence challenges, so this is both a huge validation and very scary at the same time 🙈
I then proceeded to ugly cry in front of a room that must have had a thousand people in it 😭. I have so many thoughts, so many people to thank, so much I want to say... But I've barely slept and my brain needs some more time to decompress.
2019 has been a hell of a year, but this is even more of a hell of a way to start to close it out. Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me good wishes, or told me they're proud of me, or helped me in some way along this journey. There are so many of you but I love you all 💜
