After much discussion, debate, deliberation, I’ve finally decided to leave my job in pursuit of a more wholesome life – family life. I’ve always tried and somewhat managed to balance work & play (well technically, since play comes after work and getting that monthly salary) but not family. Especially family planning. I suck at that whole game.
Being married for 32 months and trying for at least 26 and really trying for the last 12 (okay, we really underestimated the whole getting preggy game), I’ve decided that the whole blame game on work stress needs to come to an end. I need to learn how to take things in my stride . And I need to learn how to live & enjoy living once again, how God had intended for our lives to be. And I need to learn how to re-cultivate God’s presence into my life again. I need to start being anxious for nothing. And basically just do the cliche thing that everyone’s been telling me: relax (hmm…)
It’s not going to be easy. Not being able to covet that holiday or bag in a swipe of a card. But I know that this decision will lead to bigger and better things to come. After all, money can’t buy motherhood right?
