Going back to work

It's been almost 3 years since I've been employed with a company.  I've been working as a stay at home mom and homemaker since I had my son in 2009.  He is now old enough that we feel it's alright for him to start daycare part time.  This means it is time for me to go back to work part time.

There are quite a few emotions that occur when I think about this: excitement, nervousness, satisfaction, self-worth, happiness, and even sadness (for being away from my son for a short while).

I've found quite a few places in my nearby area that I can apply to, 32 to be exact.  I recently passed a test that certified me in my field of study and I have my Bachelors degree as well.  All this makes me confident I can obtain a job, but then there is the doubt that creeps in because I have been out of work so long.  My career involves a lot of technical skills and I know there will be working interviews.

This is one of those turning points in life when changes occur; I'm not good with changes usually, but I think this time I'm ready.

  1. Oh yes, you are so ready! Of course you will be sad to be away from your son, I don't know much about that because I've never had children, but when you haven't been working and you go back to work outside of the house, it boosts your self-confidence IMMENSELY! You feel more independent, more "normal", more...well, your well-being is just better. Good luck finding a job!! : )
