Why do I feel guilty when people ask me if I plan on working or looking for a job, especially when one school year is ending and another year is approaching? But, I 100% always do!
When someone, who is working, especially in the same field, asks me if I'm going to apply for a job I tell them I do not know. But, soon after the conversation has ended, what do I find myself doing? Oh, searching for a job. What the frick is wrong with me? Why should I feel guilty that I am NOT working? Yes, I have a degree, experience, and am nearing the completion of my masters degree, but I am not 100% certain what I want to do with it all or even when. What is so wrong with staying home with my three little ones the past two years? I wouldn't have seen this life change, but it happened and I have really enjoyed it. Even the simple routine of taking Addy to and from Pre-K, laundry, snuggles, naps, games, playgrounds, walks, crafts, stories, etc. I feel blessed that I have been able to enjoy this time home with my children and I do NOT care that I could be doing more with my life, because to me, having these three amazing, beautiful, full of laughter children is worth more than any money in my pocket. I should NOT feel guilty for my break in teaching, nor will I wonder what more money could do for us, because we are happy just the way we are and that to me is payment enough.
