It was a busy week around here. You know how I've been complaining about my job for the last two years because of the super early hours? Well, two weeks ago, my boss asked me if I wanted to change positions and work from home a few days a week, setting my own hours. I, of course, jumped on it.
It confirmed for me, even more, that someone was listening. The thing is, I've been praying about my job and my art goals for the year, and really wanting and needing more time to work on my artwork. Since I have to bring in an income the only option for me was to look for another job ( which I had been looking for, but finding one to work around my husband's schedule with a little one at home was next to impossible.). With the job I work now, The hours a week could vary. Some weeks I'd work 5 days some 2 . On days I worked, I had get up at 3 and 4 am, and not only would I be wrecked for the day, but after doing a few days in a row, completely spent for the whole week and painting and creating was the last thing on my mind, not to mention not being such a good mom a lot of the time.
It was like some one had handed me a gift.
I'll have regular daytime hours and a set amount of hours a week I can count on... And time to work on my things when my daughter is in preschool.
So beside finishing up my job for this week, I had training for my new position which I start next week.
It only confirms for me that I am on the right track and I am actually doing what I am supposed to be doing, and taking opportunity as it comes.
My good friend, Anne, and I joke about "living the dream" but as hokey as it sounds, maybe I am one step closer to achieving it.
So I am very excited to begin another small step toward living that dream.
And I am very thankful.
