A New Beginning.
March is here and it is hands down my favorite month. My birthday is March 22, my favorite season (SPRING!) is coming and I'm just all around excited for what is to come. I'm sharing this top on the blog (finally). It's made it's fair share of appearances on all of my social media pages and then I was looking through the blog and realized, I never posted it here. Whoops.
I posted a couple of weeks ago about how to start fresh and there's no time like the present to share one of my biggest life changes that's coming just next week. I've been blogging full-time for a few months now, and while it is rewarding both financially and for the soul (I LOVE staying home with my babies!), I started to get the itch to get back to work.
But it had to be RIGHT. Not only for my family but for ME. I had a great job and when it ended, I felt what might surprise you ... relief. I literally hated going to work everyday. I hated being there. Mostly because deep down I knew that it wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I see people who go to work everyday to a job that only fulfills them financially and wonder, why would you waste your life like that?
I worked for the same company for almost 7 years, and while I met a lot of great people, I didn't like that feeling of dread every day. So when it ended, I thanked God and started doing what makes my heart happy -- styling, blogging, being a mom and being a wife.
I took some time to regroup and enjoy the peace of staying home, but I knew I wouldn't stay home forever. Not because I don't want to, but because I'm probably the worst stay at home wife ever ... I don't like to cook. I most certainly don't like to clean. And laundry and I haven't seen eye to eye for years. I told my husband, "can't I just watch Bravo all day and have a cleaning lady do it all?" I'll let you guess what his response was.
So now, I'm excited to say that after talking to several companies, I found the one that makes my heart smile and I couldn't be more excited. I've wanted to move in this direction (career-wise) for a very long time, so when the opportunity presented itself, I was so thrilled. I start on Monday. Wish me luck!
I truly believe that when doors close, it's for a reason. There's nothing there for you anymore. Trust the plan. I'm excited to see where God is leading me. Stay tuned!
