For the past year, I have basically on a career hiatus. After having my son, I was a stay at home mom for almost two years before plunging into the waters of school. I had my daughter 3 months before graduating. After graduation, I felt so guilty for pouring so much time into school and starting a career that I took a long pause to breathe and focus on my kiddos. Now that my son will be starting school next week (omg!!! I don’t want to think about that) and my daughter is well over a year, I feel the call of work saying my name. Now it is my ultimate dream to be a mom who has it all. I want to have a fantastic, happy and fulfilling marriage, I want to be a hands on mom who is present for her kids and I also want a career(not a job, but A CAREER). I also want to make a decent income and climb up the career ladder steadily.
Now I am no fool. I am aware that having it all involves making a lot of sacrifices and being tired many a day, however I have always been someone that has desired to have it all. I am a big believer that women can have it all. I have the drive to work outside of the home AND maintain a great environment for my husband and kids. When I am home for too long, I find myself missing the working life, and when I am working for too long, I find myself missing home. Oh, the dilemma of being a working momma.
Anyway, I do know that we can have it all, I just have to figure out how to get there. So whenever anyone figures it out, please give me a shout out. I guess I’m in a funk because I’m trying to figure out my future. ARGGHH!!
I hope you all have your lives figured out.
