A picture in our wedding album! 🙂
I am overall a grounded, happy person. I tend to get into funks where I just avoid doing anything. Now that I understand my Hashimotos a little better I try to give into my moods less. I also need employment. Not only for the spending money aspect but socially. My husband is getting ready to leave, and I have a long road of alone time. I must stay busy.
Right now I have no desire to use my degrees – meaning full-time social work job. Or any full-time job. My last job destroyed my love for that and burnt me out with working 8am-10pm with no overtime, and I always had weekend notes. Honestly looking back ( in 2017 to this post) I am impressed I worked so long for 25k salary and in poverty myself without any overtime pay. I look at other life paths: In the back of my mind. I still want to be a therapist. In the front of my mind… I like working only a few days a week and having a semi-clean home. With projects and tons of relaxing.
Now when I get back from vacation for a month in October, I will be nannying 2x a week for 6 hours a day. I am going to volunteer at the local shelter or hospital for that part in the back of my mind and work on ” getting my life together.” I feel so disorganized. Lame. And rather stupid for not doing anything since getting back from our honeymoon.
Thanks to “lifetime” blogs I feel my house is crazy messy. Ugly. And add their crazy good meals. Cute clothes. Adorable kids. And they own a business. Work full time. And wrote a book.
Then there is me… *twiddles thumbs*
And.. made my husband’s lunch because I just NEED something to do.
I would even go back to school if I knew it would lead me to what I want to do. I love social media and wish I had a clue on steps to managing a company’s social media. But I love fitness. And baking. And therapy…
Yeah. I should have stayed in the USVI. I need a good self-discovery book right now….
