Just One Thing

About a year ago (Was it THAT long ago?) one of my favorite blogging mamas wrestled with some issues having to do with a career change. She knew it was time for a change and over time she made it and has been so much the better for it. But it wasn't easy for her -- as anyone reading along could tell. And now I know why. Change is hard. Following your passion is scary. Risk is unsettling.

I love my job. But I haven't been happy going to work for some time. I cut back from full-time to part-time and tried to manage everything. But my heart hasn't been in it for a very long time and that can be so wearing. And then last week it came to me. I need for my heart and mind to be occupied by the same thing.

So I'm hatching a plan over here. I'm making some changes. And it is at once scary, unsettling and exhilarating. I don't want to divulge too much just yet. But as soon as my plans are finalized I'll spill the beans.


  1. I'm holding my breath!

    I think a lot about what Salome did- you could probably tell from my post today. I can't wait to hear what you're planning...

  2. Be brave.

    And keep us posted.

  3. Good luck! Following your heart is truly where happiness lies! I am eager to hear what your future holds!

  4. Its been the best thing I've done since having kids! Really, the change was hard - it's so difficult to wrestle free from our comfort zones - but everyday I wake up and can't imagine doing anything else with my life. It's so amazing. DO IT!! And good luck to you! I'll be sitting here reading along!
