let the sunshine in

Posted June 16, 2011 by Christina


It has been really beautiful here the last few days in California.  
Sometimes, when I am having a difficult week like this one, I wonder am I doing the right things
with my life? Should I have just stuck with the whole stay at home mom thing?  Then I could just enjoy the sunshine with the kids!

Or just sometimes I wonder would it be easier to just work for someone else and let it all go at the end of the day?

I can’t decide if I love that bed or not….
sort of like my life — making grown-up decisions is somehow quite hard for me.
Hang in there – and take it easy on yourself.

I’ve never commented before … I just Love your blog … this pic speaks to me. When the sun shines life always seems to be better … I am at a crossroads, so to speak, in my life regarding a career change. I’ve been a stay at home mom for 13 years now, but will son be a business owner, hopefully! I am terrified! and thrilled at the same time … We all want to reach a balanced feeling of accomplishment, success, fulfillment … It takes time! Thanks for the lovely photo this morning!!

If you work for someone else, you don’t really leave it all home at the end of the day .. you have your life/responsibilities Plus their needs.
Staying at home and being Mom is a totally worthy way of life and as satisfying as any big deal job. In this case, in my opinion, it is not the Job but the Person .. some people need more challenge, more praise, more structure , more company ..
There is no perfect solution, whichever you choose, you always wonder if the Other would have been better.
Wait til the difficulties pass, then see if you feel the same way.
The weekend is almost here, that makes things brighter !

Often I ask myself if it’s worth it being self-employed. Doubts are always around the corner.

But after experiencing the freedom that comes with working for yourself, going back to regular employment is more difficult than shedding all the problems and doubts.

Hope your week improves :)

Trust me when you work for someone else you can’t let it go at the end of the day….being your own boss rules out working for a boss any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had SO many jobs working for other people and while my current one is the best, I’m still called at home after hours almost daily and on the weekends. I have vowed to myself that someday I will only answer to myself. Hang in there. I agree, Follow your heart! Good Luck!
