I am handing in my two weeks notice to Hayward on Friday.

It just really isn't the job for me, i get up in the morning and it is a chore that I have to do, going to work. I want a job where I am happy to go to work and that is perfect for me. Unfortunately I am discovering that I don't know what that is.

I have spent so much of my life trying to please others and fit in that I now am learning that I don't really know who I am or what I really like. I have no idea what my ideal job is; well, actually, I want to be a stay at home mom, but that is a couple years down the road, so until then I need to know what else it is that I can do and love.

  • I love organizing and rearranging things so that they are more functional and astheticley pleasing. I rearranged my bedroom about 7 times through high school.
  • I love working with kids, especially younger ones. 5 and under is my fave.
  • I love working with my hands ( I learn best by physically being able to do something than watch someone else do it).
  • I love filing, (yes it's true!) it is so organized and precise.
Now I am getting married and need to have a job so we can afford rent and to send Kyle to school, but I don't know where or what.

I am trying to set up a meeting with Danny Martin to see if he can help with vocational stuff, and figure out just what I should be doing.

Sorry, babe. I know how frustrating it is to just tread water until you land a "real" career position. Being a stay-at-home mom is more work than any other job I've ever had, but more rewarding, too. I hope Danny can give you some advice...Tim is meeting with him next week for answers to the same questions!! We'll be praying for you...

that's a tough one. i love your heart's desire! i can't wait for you to be a mommy!!

at least you are figuring out ahead of time that you aren't happy in your current job, and not just sticking with the status quo. taking risks and doing new things can be a great thing!!!

being a mom is wonderful, definitely a lot of work but also of the most rewarding kind. i got pregnant really early in our marriage and am so happy that i did! (on a side note kristen and i both graduated poly with MRS degrees!!!)

Kristen Borland said...

yeah, brianna! woo-hoo!!! thanks for including me in that. ;) yes, carrie, it is true. neither one of us has a degree. both we both quit with very good reasons, and i have to say, though it would be nice to have a diploma, i'm still totally okay with my decision (i know brianna is as well). but you have your diploma, right? that's wonderful! i still have to agree that the two best jobs in the world are MRS and MOM, and if you can ever get away with not working, it is awesome! it takes some serious sacrificing working off one income, but it's also so special. maybe when kyle's done with school???

you're getting married tomorrow! CONGRATULATIONS to you both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
