This year has been a whirl wind of great and not so great moments, but I’m happy to say the previous season is now behind me. I’m ready to move forward with my sails down, seizing all of God’s glorious wind as He propels me towards His will. This year, my little babe turned one! I couldn’t be anymore thrilled with watching her grow.
I decided to take a backseat from my career a few months ago and it’s been the best decision of my life! I love doing hair, but ladies, if you can come home to your little ones…….do it! Yes! it was a hard decision to make. I was unsure about how coming home would affect me. Would I get bored? Would I feel unimportant? How would I make money? Would I feel undifined and how could I define myself if I felt lost in society’s eye’s?…….. Wait a minute…….Breath……..Did the Devil just hand me a lick of nonsense or what? Who get’s bored with a 1 year old? My baby depends on every move I make, unimportant?…..I’m the most important thing in her life and society can kiss it! No one deifnes me but my savior and He will give me grace for every challenge I face!…….The money part, well, I’m still working on that! I like to refurbish furniture, like, a lot! Maybe that will produce an income of some sorts! In the mean time I’m tackeling projects that have laid untouched in over 5 years……….Yes, people, 5 years! I have finally hung picture frames (with pictures in them) on my walls. My hallway is no longer bare boned and I sigh a sigh of relief when walking to or from my kitchen! It still needs some work, but I’ve got plenty of time!
I’m happy with mine and my husbands decision to come home for my girls (both my pups are girly’s too) and of course for my husband. This change free’s him up to make fincial decisions to secure our families future. What isn;t important about that!? Are you thinking about coming home and struggling with decision to do so? What thoughts do you have about leaving the work force to come home and maintain your family and home? I’d love to hear!
