Mommy Blogger Jess C. – Returning to the Workforce
Monday I went into a business and filled out an application. That was the first time doing that in over 2 years, and boy was it weird.
I used to be the kind of woman that kept a full time job. Got up every morning at the same time and off to work for the day fulfilling every one of my boss’ requests. I would come home each day exhausted from tending to others, so much so that when my children or husband would have a request I would just cringe. Then I decided to stay home. I gave up that life. I started tending to my children and husband, and eventually our new 4 kids. I made this house our home.
But now things are changing.
We have some major goals we want to achieve, some debt we want to see gone, and when you have a goal you need to buck up and achieve it. So my new journey begins. I shall go back into the work force. I will have to get used to listening to others requests, manage waking up on time and get dressed for success daily. It’s going to be a whole new world for me. I don’t even know how to set my alarm clock anymore.
I worry that I won’t know how to “work” again. I worry that the world has learned some new tricks while I was at home learning all my kids’ names. While I was in the kitchen trying out some new Pinterest recipe did the world create new ways to old methods? Well I guess I will find out soon enough.
Do you have any advice to me, been out of it over 2 years? Anything I should know now?
