I had to think hard and dig deep to find a decision I made in my life that is based on hope and possibility. The decision I made, this sounds super corny, was based on love also.
When I married my husband, it was somehow agreed upon that I will quit my full-time job and help him establish his business. I was also the carer of his young daughter at the time (when we had her).
There were many struggles and battles over money, etc; mental health issues (not mine), patience tested (mine) and a lot of growing on both parts.
I felt like I GAVE more and GAVE UP even more for us. Also, I am the only one with solutions like setting goals, saving money and writing affirmations. It was quite frustrating period of our marriage like our marriage rested on my shoulders. No wonder my shoulders hurt even until now.
Fast-forward 12 years, I am grateful that the business does provide for the family; that I am able to take care of all my children and be there for them full-time.
Now that Willow is turning 4, I have more time for myself including to blog and post on Instagram. I can now open myself to new creative ventures.
Looking back, what really looks like a dumb decision to give up my career, is actually the best decision I made for me and my family.
PS. Started reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. Loving it!
