It’s Monday eve and I am now relating to all of you who never want the weekend to end. I feel you, friends.
It’s been a year since I have worked for someone else besides myself. This past week was exciting yet exhausting while learning the ropes of my new job. It seems so overwhelming to balance this new job and selling my boutique clothing, not to mention contribute to housework, meal planning, and all of life’s demands. Seriously – to all you who are momma’s and doing this, I have the utmost respect. I don’t even have kids and I sometimes feel insane. Moms are super humans!
So I try to remind myself daily (when I am pouring myself out of bed at 6:15am) while getting ready, that I am doing this with purpose. I am trying to help design a life that eases our financial stressors and tackles our debts. That I have to do some things now in order to be able to do what I WANT to do later. It’s hard and stressful, y’all. Life was easier as a kid – there were no bills and meals were covered every night haha (my grandma was a mean cook, I miss those days).
Life is harder as an adult but it definitely makes us more resilient – I think of every challenge as a learning moment. Like right now: I know being a dental assistant will help me learn, grow, and figure out what I want to do later down the road. Maybe I could even pursue dental hygiene, or dentistry? Or maybe not, I just don’t know yet haha. I am a huge believer in “everything happens for a reason,” even if it sounds corny or cliché. But I truly believe it – everything in my life has taught me something; school, jobs, friendships, and everything in between. So I am using that as my mantra during my adjustment period here. It’s going to challenge and change me but for good reason. I just have to figure out what that reason is but I have confidence that it’s good. Only time will tell and I’ll be here, updating you along the way.
Tell me – have you faced a similar situation before? What did you do and how did you overcome it? Tell me your thoughts!
Have an amazing week,
xoxo – Danielle
