i came across the most beautiful quote that made me smile.
it spoke to me perfectly as I’m at a point in my life where the crossroads are splitting into many paths.
next fall all three of my girls will be in school, all day. and I contemplate a journey of my own for the first time since having children.
do I continue to work from home, care for children, create my fun party favor buckets and pursue my dream of writing a children’s book, or do I venture off on in a new direction and become a teacher like I feel I was meant to be? Being on the same schedule as my girls and husband, who is also a teacher, and having summers off would be my dream life for the next 30 years.
it’s a big decision as I’ll have to take several years of graduate classes to obtain my master’s in education. Is it worth all the time and money and student loans? So much to think about.
i’m not getting any younger and want to do what’s best for my family.
all I know regarding happiness is being a mommy to these three.
“When one's business is the home, measure success in smiles, pay dividends in laughter, chart revenues with wonder. When others' ventures fail and fumble, yours will flourish. And when you are old and the home is quiet, your butterfly chasers and your dress up dreamers will have a vault of memories that will make them rich.”
any advice or insight is welcomed.
