There are some exciting changes happening in our household... Those who know me best know that I did not really enjoy my profession all that much. I worked very hard at it and it took a lot of time & money but at the end of they day I wasn't really happy with it. Sure I am proud to call myself a CA but I definitely did not enjoy going to work every day.
The reality of the situation was that I did what I was told I was supposed to do when growing up. I went to University, got a couple degrees and became a "professional" in the hopes to eventually make lots of money. But I've always felt a little disappointed that I wasn't doing a job that I was passionate about and that I truly enjoyed and really having lots of money isn't really worth that. I told myself that really no one truly enjoyed their job but I knew that wasn't true as my sister LOVES her job and looks forward to it every day. I also made excuses that included I've already done too many years of education to do something else, it would be a waste of all that money I've spent, I'm too old to switch now, etc.
Then one day I realized that if I wanted to do something I enjoyed and that would allow me to also be a stay at home mom that I should just do it! No one is stopping me except for myself.
I am excited to say that I am now working towards doing things that I am passionate about. Next month I am attending Hypnobabies training in St. Louis and am also planning on taking Gloria Lemay's doula training in April. I can't wait to become a Hypnobabies instructor and a doula. I am looking forward to being able to provide a comprehensive prenatal courses to moms that will help empower them and take control of their birthing choices. I loved my Hypnobabies course when I was pregnant and am still close to my instructor who has been very supportive of me. I also cannot imagine anyone better to take my doula education with than Gloria, she is very inspirational!
I also recently became an independent Miessence representative so that I could help provide a solution to those who were looking for truly safe, natural and beneficial personal care products for their whole family. It took me months to find a line of products that I felt good using on us and Kaiden, one that was safe enough that we could eat it, and I wanted to help make this search easier for other families.
As you can see, big changes are happening in our home and I am very excited with where they are going to take me.
