For years I knew that the day was coming, but somehow it still kind of snuck up on me too. My youngest child just started kindergarten.
I have been a stay at home mom for over 9 years, so this is a major life change for me. I feel pressure to get a job, to keep the house perfectly clean and to make great dinners with all of this newfound time that I have. (Yikes!)
Getting a job (one that doesn’t require putting my kids in daycare during school breaks) is a lot harder than I excepted. I tried to get a teaching job, but didn’t get one.
So, I am stepping out and trying to be a writer. It is a big step for this type B personality – being disciplined to work at home full time – but I am excited to see where it leads! Change is hard, but can be exciting too!
What new season in life are you trying to embrace?
