I'm A Mom, So I Quit!
The only thing I knew for certain growing up is that I wanted to be a mom. I wanted children around me. The instinct to nurture is strong in me. I know that being a mom is a blessing with much responsibility! I am so grateful I have those responsibilities and blessings.
I am easily overwhelmed. I am not good at having to many eggs in one basket. At my job I was given new responsibilities with more hours. Although I was only working 23 hours a week I felt like it was to much. I could not keep up on top of things at the home the way I wanted. After being miserable and overwhelmed and a lot of anxiety I quit. It felt good. I'm not an employee, I'm a mom.
I am so grateful for a husband that gives me this honor to stay home. I know the loss of income is a big adjustment. He is a champ!
I read this blog entry today that summed up all I was feelings leading up to me leaving my job.
I am a mom.
I am so lucky!
