When you make plans, God laughs. That's what they say right? One of the biggest struggles I have about pulling the plug on the professional work life is bills. I have faith that the Lord will take care of me. And I have faith that my husband will do his part to provide for his family. I'm only human and I can't help but think about all the bills.
My plans consisted of:
paying off our debts
traveling a little bit more
doing another house renovation project or two
Preferably in that order - but you know, it's a thought. I'm not a psycho that wants her entire life planned out in 10 years...I mean I am, but still.
Of course, depending on what works best for my family is what I'll do. I'm torn now and then. The whole point of these blogs is to show how torn I am. I ponder if there are other professional women out there who feel how I do? If that's you, I would leave a comment below and tell me what's holding you back!
It's a bit silly because when I think about it, nothing makes me more excited than taking care of myself and my family. So many people take staying home for granted. They think your lazy and you sit on the couch all day watching Real Housewives while eating potato chips. Society has deemed it as such a negative thing. When this isn't the case, at all.
I’ve had friends and family members who have worked up until their due date. Some of them even went into labor at work!
Some, have even told me that they had to finish their shift. While being in active labor - because they couldn’t afford to leave. That's nuts! I'm not sure if that's even legal. Either way, that's not going to be me. Hell to the No!
But I also know a lovely lady who has 4 kids, all under the age of 6 and she's a stay at home mom, and she's crushing it! - she's 27 by the way.
While I love making money and making my own money, bills may always be the natural stress of life.
Having the ability to be able to enjoy the blessing of watching your beautiful family grow - I still don't believe that anything compares.
