So ladies.. I am in a situation. I feel stuck and stressed and it isn't lovely and I would love your help.. in so many forms. Like you might have read, I work 2 1/2 days OUT of the home.. I don't mind working OUT of the home... but the type of work it is has become very stressful for me.. it can make or break my week, day, hour.. it is starting to affecting me in ways it shouldn't.. I know it's not healthy. So I chatted with my husband about finding something else, equal hours, around the same pay, so nothing would really change.. minus the job itself.
Do you make the switch for happiness over comfort? When is enough, enough? Should I lay low and stick things out.. or be a risk taker and take my happiness in my own hands?

So, just last week. I quit. I was scared and worried about the money part.. But, I thought with the amount of time I spent worrying about it, thinking about it and then actually doing it (about 8 hours worth).. I could put that energy into doing something I already have BETTER... to spend more time on branding me and my site and my writing.. and I was terrified... cause I need that money.. .But good news is... my plan worked.. the time it opened up for me and not just the actual time but my brain was clogged because it was ON my mind so much... it lightened my load and the time I had "free" this week, I spent really tackling my own stuff and small successes came from it...
I fully believe that if you are spread thin... and are unhappy that it carries over into so much and that if you free that party up, you can manifest it into something else or find another source of that income..
So. yes. I'm all about happy versus working to the bone... I lived in a tiny one bedroom apartment with my kids for 3 years so that I was THERE for them.. I could have gone and had a full time job to do better financially or get us a better place to love, but I believed that me being happy and with my kids and available to them... even though we were eating rice lol.. was worth it...
SO, make that jump... cut where you can.. and push harder for one more client doing what you LOVE to do... you got this...
Thanks so much for the support and kind words.. now, do you need someone to help market you as a writer and your humor!? ;) hehehe
