If a change is gonna come, it's always better to grab it and make it
work for you, rather than fight the inevitable, says Edith Bowman

ate in September, I bid farewell to
my Virgin Radio Breakfast Show. I
originally signed up, almost two years
ago, because I was given an opportunity to
create something new, try a different approach
to a breakfast show. My boss at the time was
incredibly supportive, creative and extremely
encouraging and brave in taking risks with the
show. It paid off. We had fantastic figures and
the audience seemed to be loving what we were
doing. But, things change, people move on and
different faces come in and have very different
ideas. I took the decision it wasn't for me,
nothing more, nothing less. The decision
wasn't easy to make, but it was the right one for
me. A decision I haven't thought twice about.
I've had a varied relationship with change
over the years, be that in relationships, work
and other areas of life. With love, it's never
easy moving on from a relationship, especially
if it's not your decision. Heartbroken, desolate
and destined to be single for the rest of your

LIFE IS NOW FILLED WITH
MORE INCREDIBLE OPTIONS
THAN FOR YEARS
life. That's the initial emotion. But with time
that heartbreak mends and you will come to
realise it was the right decision. You may even
wonder why it had taken so long?

they are spoken. Words you don't want to hear.
All your hard work means nothing? What next?
Give it a bit of time and again, it really can
have a positive outcome and steer you in a
direction to new and exciting challenges.
After all that and more, I am thinking change
is a good thing. It can be scary and daunting,
but it can also be revelatory and exciting.
That's where I am at the minute. I know
this was the right time to move
on and, excitingly, I had a
long list of things I could
turn my attention to,
including my podcast
Soundtracking, which
I am very proud of.
If you are in a
similar situation
see it as an
opportunity to
take control.
See it as the
end of one
chapter and
the start of an
exciting
new one. B

CHANGE IS POSITIVE
In work, I've had those meetings where you
are sitting opposite someone you think you
know, someone who might have made you
promises that turn out to be false promises.
The words resonate in your head even before
