So, today I quit my job. It wasn’t something I planned or really thought about, though Ryan and I have briefly discussed me not returning to my current position this fall, and I really didn’t believe that things would come down to this. In hindsight, it probably was a long time coming. I should have made the break a few years ago but was holding onto the security and false hope that I’d be hired in full time. I have lots of thoughts on this (and will share on my private blog because there are things that just don’t need to be public) and have mixed emotions.
I really honestly would love to be a SAHM (at least part time?) but I’m not sure our finances can support that.
I’ve talked about pursuing photography more, actually marketing and “working” (rather than just sitting back and letting clients come to me… which has been fine thus far). I may do that and pray that I can create some sort of consistent income for us, though I could always fall back on subbing part time if I need to supplement.
I just don’t know. I guess in the long run this blip will be a blessing in disguise. Maybe it will allow me more time with my babies. Maybe this is the direction God is wanting for me… to allow me to follow my passion in photography… to get in touch more with my creative side. Maybe there is a full time teaching position out there that is meant for me and had I not quit I wouldn’t be opened up to that opportunity.
Time will tell. I know regardless all things will work out for the best, God always provides and we are never given more than we can handle.
