Get Out of the Do

Posted on February 24, 2010 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

It's Monday morning and I'm looking at what I accomplished last week. I was SO busy - catching up after big snow storms caused havoc to my work schedule (due to a six days of no school for my son), keeping on top of current client needs, responding to new clients and marketing opportunities, staying on top of email and phone calls, chairing a big volunteer event and taking care of me, the house, my family and meals. Although I did…

I am struggling with the work/life balance. I have 2 kids, 10 months and 2 3/4. I work full time. I am out of my house from 7 am (which means I get up at 5 am in order to have time to get ready for work) and I dont get home until 5:30 pm. I hate the fact that I only see my children for a few hours each day. When I come home from work, I am usually super stressed out so I dont cook dinner (my hubby is gone from 6 am to 7 pm). I just hang with the kids, i make them dinner, bathe them and we play. I hate the fact that I am away from the kids for so long. I have discussed with my husband about me quitting in December but I can tell he doesnt want me to. He makes a good living and we could afford for me to quit, but we would not have the luxurues that we have now. Things would be tight for us and that scares my husband to death. We are both from poor families and right now we are at a place that money is not an issue. Its a great place to be, but is money happiness? Everytime I see a mother with her kids when I go to lunch I feel so guilty. I feel like I am a bad mother because I never get to see the kids. I never get to do the fun things I see other mothers doing with their kids during hte day. My husband also gives me guilt trips about getting our kids around other kids more. He forgets that I work full time and I told him if I was home these thigns would be happening. But I also wonder if I am cut out to be a stay at home mom? I am questioning both sides right now. I guess I am writing to you to see if yoou can make things clearer for me.

Hi Julie!

I am new in your amazing page, so I was wondering if I can have your advice...I live in Monterrey México, mother of 4 chidren a 7 year old girl and 5 month triplets (2 girls, 1 boy) and I am interested in finding an opportunity to work from home.

I was wondering if living in México could be an inconvenience for me to offer my services in the US, I already invite my friends to start a Mexico's moms group, I am also interested in applying to Butterfly's job offers.

Thank you for your time!

Thanks julie for your dvice. I been trying to network at the doctors office when i go, the grocery store, my sons school and i have came up with nothing. It would be much easier if i had a babysitter (have no family here). I will keep trying, i have no choice, i have my boys that need me. Thanks again!

Hi Julie, Bradi Nathan suggested i talk to you. My life story is on my profile for you to check. I had been going through a really hard time, i have to boys to take of ages 5 months, 7 and 18. I am recently single after 8 1/2 yrs from their dad. I also have been home for about 8 months due to complications during and after my pregnancy. I don't even have an income anymore. I am used to working and having my own money and being able to provide for my kids. I don't know what to do or where to turn, i just need a little guidance. What ever help you could provide will be greatly appreciated. thx

Hello again Julie,
I feel so blessed that you have taken the time to comment on my posting again. I really appreciate this Julie. I have been blessed with this website. Well, Julie it seems like my life is going in circles. I haven't progress in any aspect of my life. I know you know very little about me, but I feel like I am in the same place I was five years ago, stuggling, trying to make ends meet, and wishing that life would be different for me. I am a doer and a big visionary. I think fear gets in my way,fear of success, failure and not loving who I am, so what I do is just settle for less. My family has suffered, because I make poor decsions. I have been divorced now for 12 years. I have been raising all of my 8 children alone. I only have four more to raise. I feel like I need to do much more in my life now. I sacrified a lot for them. I have a fire inside of me that is burning bright. I know I will be a successful at whatever I do. I just wanting for a door to open. I don't know what it is!! I know Julie you ask me a question regarding the stage in my life. Well, like I said before I really don't see myself growing. I always seem to settle for less. My life and lifestyle show this and it is so awful. I just don't know whats wrong with me. Please if you have anymore advice feel free to give it to me. I don't take anything personal. I really need the advice and guidance. I am grateful that you are on this website.
Thanks Julie,

Carla

Hello Julie,
Thank you for the wonderful advice. I will look into the extra resources you provided. I just sometime feel I haven't made the right decisions in my life. I feel since I have reached middle age that I should of had this all figured out. I truly appreciate your reply. I am sorry if a appear to be scattered brained. I have not made a lot of good decisions in my life. I feel like I really need to focus on something. I just can't pin-point what it might be. Thank you again Julie. I will talk to you soon. Carla

Dear Julie:
I am a 51 year old mom of a grown son and studying to become
a Reiki master (hands-on-healer). I am also interested in entering the
editorial field. I have no job experience in this field but in college English
was my best subject and friends and family are always asking for my
help. Do you have any thoughts on how to combine these two interests?
I have started a blog through your company asking for other Reiki moms
to join my group. I don't see myself earning the money I need through
Reiki sessions right now because I still have about a year of schooling to go.

Hello Julie Cohen,
My name is Carla. I am new to this community. I really need some career coaching. I am a single mother of eight children. I have four adult daughters and four minor sons. I have been divorced now for about 11 years. I have a terrible job history. I really never had a career for myself, my resume is choppy, and I only hold a Assoicates of Arts degree. I am currently working on my Bachelors in Nursing. I don't know if this is the direction I would like to take. I do work now in the medical field. I really think that it is so depressing, but what I do love is the patients. I love helping others. I have many passions and interest. I currently live in California where the economy is doing terrible. I have confidence that I can do better for my family. I just have a slight fear that no one will take me serious, because I lack experience and education. I want to go in the direction that will give be a good income as well as a more flexible lifestyle. I know there are opportunities out there. I really never had the job of my dreams. I really know that there is something out there for me. I just don't know what it is. I am will to do whatever I can to get there. Do you think I should get a degree in a more marketable area? I have always had a entrepreneurial spirit, so should I go and try to invent something or start my own business? I just don't know where to begin. I was kind of fearful joining this community, because some of these women are so amazing, with all their knowledge and confidence. I would really like to turn things around for myself and live life to the fullest. Thank you Julie, you are an asset to this community. Carla
