As any family when it comes to those big decisions it must be a joint effort.
Deciding to say goodbye to my 15 years of teaching and starting life as a mom I must say was the biggest one our family has ever made.
When making this decision even though it being the toughest one yet and one I was quite not ready for at this point I had come to peace with it.
Opportunities started to fly in all over, wow I actually was wanted. But remembering why I decided to try start something from home needed to be my reminder. Actually just being able to be there for my children in any situation is actually why we made this choice and should be the center of any thoughts going forward.
I really do wish there was a crystal ball which we could ask questions into and it told us wether we were going the right way or not.
Financially starting a new job would benefit our family as well as keeping me busy and stimulated. But going back into the same arena I can’t. Something just doesn’t feel right. It may be the only thing I know but maybe that is what got me complacent to begin with.
I need to start working smart and think out of the box and give myself peace of mind that the reasons I’d be doing this is for my children. As already I know there is no perfect job out there but doing what works for our family is where I’m headed.
Taking up a new course might be on the horizon for the new year. But stressing myself out on what if’s is not going to get me anywhere.
I’ve decided to give myself the year to find out what it is my family needs as well as myself. Taking this time not to jump into something so soon as I’m free and giving myself this time to grow emotionally, as well as becoming a better mom, wife and person all round.
Trusting once again in the universe that this is where I’m meant to be and that my path is being paved I am once again confident in this. I know the same equal opportunities will come up, the right ones that suit us all.
Just like finding a home, or school for my children I’ll know it’s right when it comes along.
Obviously trying to also be my own boss and to start something I enjoy from my home would be ideal and this is where my thought process will be going.
Turning down recent opportunities with humility is what I’ll be doing. At times it’s like everything happens all at once or nothing at all. But by giving yourself time is ok.
I will embark on my own physical journey to bettering myself this week and I know a lot more becomes clearer when you are happy inside and out about yourself.
I feel being true to your family and who you are is what is needed to guide you and hopefully the rest falls into place. Putting my journey back into the hands of Angels I’m happy, confident and positive this is the way to go.
Sometimes it might not be what you thought you would be doing with your life, but one thing I’ve realized is happiness is key. Being happy and fulfilled in your work is just as important as being happy in your home and I do believe it is possible.
……. the journey once again continues ……..
