Forgive me for leaving you.
It’s been months.
Life has been crazy busy, as I’m sure yours have been, too.
My life has been in a constant state of change for the past few months. You know that feeling when you know that something has got to change, but you don’t know how or when? If you’ve read this blog before, you know change and I don’t exactly get on like peas and carrots.
My duties in my second job as a Social Media Content Manager have been increasing. I’m learning so much about social media marketing! I love having a hand in helping people find quality services and products that they may not have known about otherwise.
And I’ve taken on a new position (crazy woman!) through early March helping with a social media campaign to raise money on Indiegogo for a documentary film that is in production. Note: You will see lots of info from me over the next few days about this project. And you just may thank me for putting you in the know about this intriguing film.
Am I doing work that I love? Yes. But what about my other loves? I’m not spending as much quality time with my family. I’m forcing conversations with JJ trying to pack as much quality conversation into less time to let him know that he is an important priority for me and that I care about him. Jeff has two jobs (downgraded from three) and we both plop into bed late at night (sometimes early in the morning) and fall into exhausted sleep. Date nights and social events have been out of the question lately.
My other responsibilities? Don’t get me started on how disorganized my house looks. Or how I’m dragging myself home from one job to start on another. Or how I’m trying to maintain the quality of my volunteer work as a Bible teacher because I deeply love and value the privilege. Or how I am THE worst daughter in the world and don’t call to my parents nearly enough. Exercise. Time with friends. Cooking dinner. All falling to the wayside.
Something has got to give.
So, I’m considering making the career move that I have been wanting to make for YEARS. I’ve been praying and trying to muster up the courage to do it. Will it happen? I am very hopeful. In the meantime, I’m dusting off old skills and trying to hone new ones. Leaving my day job and becoming a social media maven seems pretty scary right now. Not gonna lie.
We shall see…all in due time.
