Pour Your Heart Out Wednesday (well Thursday) - I'm Scared





I'm scared. There I said it. I should be excited and jumping all over for joy, but I am scared.

Why you ask? I got a job. A full time job. After 11 years of staying home with my four daughters, working countless night jobs and part time jobs I finally will be leaving the house from 8 to 4 and working a real job.

Now don't get me wrong. In a sane person's mind this is a great opportunity and a wonderful thing. We can use the money, it has great benefits, which we need as well. Not to mention the fact I went from part time Customer Service Rep on the phone at night to the companies Director of Marketing. I am so grateful for this opportunity I can't even begin to tell you.

I knew this day would come I guess I just thought I had more time. I am lucky my Mom is willing to watch the girls. This job just kind of fell into my lap and I would be a fool to pass it up. Getting back into the workforce is not easy.

Change is so hard. I am trying to embrace it. I am comfortable here at home. It is what I know. Hopefully I will find a way to be comfortable out there in the world as well.

Wish me luck.

  3. Allow yourself some transition feelings as it is hard to change from one to the other but I bet once you get going, you'll find it works out just fine and your confidence will grow. You are fortunate! Good luck to you and let us know how it's going when you get a chance!

  6. Good luck with the new job.

    It's hard to leave the kids after being home with them- i did it after 10 yrs dong home daycare.

    I missed home and because of some medical stuff I am back home again, working there (or at camp!)

  9. I don't blame you for being scared. I HATE starting new jobs. I hate to be out of my comfort zone! Of course, I wouldn't admit it to my new employer, but it's scary!

  10. Good luck with the new job! I've only been a stay-at-home mom for 4 years, and I wouldn't be able to even look for a job for the fear of leaving the kids with someone else... I admire moms who can get up and go to a "real" job.
