This is my last week at work and I’m excited but at the same time a little anxious and sad.
I’m excited because at last my dream of staying at home has come true. I will be with my family most of the time, no more deadlines for drawings to be submitted and most of all I won’t be enduring the hardship of commuting every day.
On the other hand, I feel a little anxious because this is my first time to stay at home after working full time for more than eighteen years. Although I spend time with my family every night, every weekend and every holiday, being with them every day is definitely a new experience for me. I really don’t know what I will be expecting being a full time mother … I have read stories and experiences of other stay at home moms and so far they give me the idea but every family is different just like as every person is unique so I still have that little anxiety running through my mind.
Lastly, I also feel sad because with my eighteen years of working full time, eight years of which is with my current company, I have made friends with a lot of my officemates, friendships that blossomed for years and now we will not be seeing each other that often.
Anyway, all these feelings are normal for persons going through a transition in life and I am not exempted from it. I know these feelings will pass and reality will take its place … life wouldn’t be easier because I will be a full time mom but with God’s guidance and blessings I believe I will be living a great life.
