I was certain that taking it on would be the right answer and then a voice of reason hit me the other day highlighting just what I was expected to accomplish this year. And well, it seemed like too much!
I thought that taking on school hours, extra study, a new job, children's activities and needs, 'mummying' and 'wifeing' would be fine. Until I actually added it all up!
I have not been in the work force for quite some time, so that alone is going to be a HUGE adjustment. I have the Division 2 Nursing qualification already under my belt so I can secure myself a good job and that's what I plan to do. I think, with everything we have been through and are still going through, the less stress we take on as a family this year, the better!
I do look forward to working. It will be amazingly good for me to step out and better my skills and spend time with adults doing 'adult' things. I have to settle my little man in care, something I have not done before with such a young child, but I know its all going to be ok. I know I will look back in a few months and smile... big!
So, I have deferred my course. Im lucky to have the option to do so. It means that I know that next year, I will go back into study mode and hopefully work as well.... I have made my choice and Im grateful to have that chance!
What are you Thankful for?
