Yep, I’m annoyed that I had a good day. As I’m mentally preparing for my new role as a stay at home Mom, it’s a tad annoying to have a day where I feel mostly productive and valued at my corporate job.
There are definitely days where this decision doesn’t seem as straight forward as I’d like. Even moments when it’s scary. Since I stayed home for a while with my first son, the concept isn’t entirely foreign to me. So I know I’ll be trading some stresses for others, and even giving up a few things. Like positive feedback for a job well done. Or the feeling of closing a sale. But it goes without saying that it’s better to have a job that’s rewarding in and of itself. I’ve reached a point in my career, my life, where I want to do something that matters, that makes a positive impact. And I know staying home to raise my children is the right choice.
On the other hand, my lab results justified me further in my decision. Other than a slight iron deficiency, all of my tests came back normal. Turns out I’m just tired, stretched too thin trying to do it all.
So I’m steady in my resolve. I might have had a good day, but I’m not going to let it get me down!
