All my working life, I’ve enjoyed work. I mean… I’ve ‘liked’ it. Got the odd kick here and there, got paid ‘enough’ money and was ‘good’ at what I did. I had fun with my frolleagues (that’s what I call friends from work) and actually, some are now my nearest and dearest. But that’s it. It felt like a very means to an end situation.
It’s not until I started training to support women during pregnancy and birth that I actually found something that I’m passionate about, believe in 100% and do you know what…. I’m good at it! And just for the record, there is no way I would have felt comfortable writing that before my training. But I am and I want to share with anyone that will listen…
I’ve realised that it’s OK to want more. I love being at home with my kids, I mean genuinely love it. But its HARD. And I do think that maybe I lost a little bit of what makes me ‘me’. But being able to offer this support and teach women is genuinely good for my soul and I want that feeling more and more… so yeah it’s for me.
I get an absolute buzz seeing how I have helped my couples and it makes me just want to keep learning and getting better so I can offer even more. I mean… I’m just going to put it out there… I want to earn MY own money again. For me. As I’m sure so many of you know, it’s testing when you stop working and go down to one salary, damn right bloody hard and I think i’m just reaching the point where there are other options out there and I want to fully embrace them for me. And yeah, its ultimately going to make me a better mummy & wife as I can share these bundles of energy blah blah blah, but my driver is me. For the first time in a long while, this is for me and I’m fucking excited!!
