Up in the Air

We decided not to show our house.  We're not ready to make a decision on moving just yet.  We really need to see how this year goes for DH.  I'm on board with whatever.  I want to move and I want to stay.  Either way, we have decided that I will be leaving my job as of May.  It's just too stressful and I want to take a step back and enjoy more family time.  But what does that mean?  How will I function without my job?  This shouldn't be so scary and it is.

  1. I can relate - it's really hard/scary to think of myself without my work "identity", for lack of a better term. My observation after my sabbatical was that I enjoyed some of the work structure & social aspects (which you can replicate in other ways), & didn't like the stress. For me, the money was good enough & I didn't have an answer to "what next", which I'm working on now that I'm back to work.

    Good luck!

  2. I think the hardest thing is to reconnect with who you are outside of work.

  3. It is a major change to walk away from a job. May be you can find something less stressful? You still have a long time till May. I am sure you may figure out something to keep you busy. It could be volunteer work or a lighter job. Think of it as walking away from stress, not your job.

  4. Stepping away from what is a 'normal' routine is hard, but you have six months to work on new rhythms. And I think you are brave to take that leap of faith, and find yourself outside of work.
