52 Weeks of Blogging with a Purpose::If I Could be Anything
This weeks topic is a tough one. So many ideas run through my head of what I could possibly want to be if I could be anything.
Truth is, I'm doing exactly what I would want to be doing.
I'm a mom, and that is what I've always wanted to be. I love everything about it and while there are tough days they are few and far between.
I'm a nurse, once again that's what I always said I wanted to be. If I could work a little less that would be ideal. I want to be PRN which is three shifts a month. I can keep my licence current but spend the most time with my family. As a child I sometimes said I wanted to be a teacher but really I do a lot of teaching in my job. I love to teach families about stuff and one day I think I may follow in my grandmother's footsteps and be a nurse educator. That's not the kind of hours I want right now though.
I feel so blessed by where I am in my life right now. I have a job that I love, a sweet boy and another on the way. In reality a pretty sweet work schedule with lots of time for social activities.
There are days where I think of how great it would be to stay at home and be a SAHM. But then I realize how much I love to have a few days to myself to get away, strain my brain, and leave work with a sense of accomplishment a family so grateful for the work I have done.
There are days when I think a different career path would be what I want, but then I realize that means more hours away from my family which is not what I want at all.
I have learned to be content with where I am and it's a pretty nice place to be.
