I’ve only been a SAHM for a little over a year. It has been a journey worth travelling because I’ve learned so many things about myself as a person, a mother, and even a wife. I learned that I was chasing a lot of dreams seeking fulfillment before; and all along I had all the dreams I needed right at home.
A few months back I mentioned in a blog post that I maybe returning to the work force. Quiet as I’ve kept it I’ve been interviewing. The most recent interview I’ve gone on is for a company that would provide a bit of job security ( at least in this economy ), and would allow for me to save money for a pending move come June. This job called me back today and invited me to the second and final phase of this interview process. Needless to say, I’m super nervous. I don’t want to say I have the job because that would just be a bit more than egotistical lol. However, I pray I do.
I will definitely miss being at home with my babies but I’m already working on a schedule to make sure that I don’t lose valuable time with them. I’m scared because the idea of returning to the workforce after a year of not working is super scary. I question will I still be able to be the mom my kids have grown to love and adore even more over the last year. We’re noticeably closer. So many thoughts and worries! Le Sigh.
I know so many working moms and being that I’ve been on that side of the fence it feels like it should be easier to cope with.
Idk…I’m not going to fret just yet….can’t count my chickens before they hatch! I gotta make it through the next phase on Tuesday!
