Hi readers! It’s been a while since my last post and I missed blogging. I have been busy with my preparations of going back to work. From being a stay-at-home working mom into a working mom again.
As you all know, I worked as a virtual assistant for more than a year and my contract has ended last July. Working at home has been a wonderful experience for me. I have learned and discovered a lot of things about the home based work scenario. Honestly, I enjoyed it and if given a chance I will still want to do it. Primarily because I am with my daughter most of the time. Even if I still could not take care of her most of the time because I am busy with my tasks, at least I always see what she does at home. I see how she grows everyday.
But there are moments we have to sacrifice some things. As a mom, we need to make carefully calculated decisions because this will affect not only ourselves but also our kids. What makes it more difficult is the fact that I am a single parent and there is no one I could depend on financially but myself. And I don’t want to depend on anybody about it. This is my kid, she’s my responsibility.
So from there, I decided to go back to the corporate world. I don’t know how long I will stay because of my situation as a single mom. I need to be sure that someone I trust will take good care of my daughter while I work for us. And that someone is no other than my own mom. But she is not getting any younger. That is why it all depends on how long she can take care of my princess.
It’s a struggle for me to start all over again. Mainly because I have been in my first corporate job for 15 years and everything became so easy when I have been so familiar with everything around. 15 years is no joke. I almost knew everybody from my workplace back then, from the older colleagues up to the young ones. I have been so comfortable with the place and the work itself. But a decision has to be made, get out of my comfort zone and try new things.
Everything now is so new to me. From the workplace, the work itself and the people around me. Luckily, I have been blessed with good people as team members. Even if they are so much younger than me, we all get along well. Being with people who you get along well makes it easier for you to work.
I am not really good at starting and trying out new things. I am not a challenge seeker. I am not good at over coming changes. But some times we just have to go through with it. Even if you think you can’t do it well. Just go with the flow of your life and do the best that you can in every situation. Time will come, everything will be just as familiar as the other situations you had. And things will be a lot easier. Or at least, you become a BETTER PERSON… 🙂
