Wishcasting Wednesday

Jamie Ridler at jamieridlerstudios.ca once again asks a great question.

 "WHAT DO YOU WISH TO KNOW"

I wish to know what direction my life should be heading and am I moving in the right direction.  I have a great life right now.  I am married to the man of my dreams, I have 3 beautiful children, I get to stay at home and raise them myself rather than put them in daycare (daycare is great, but my goal was to be able to raise my children), I have my MSW.  

I have been interviewing for a part time position that I had applied for back in January.  It's a great fit time wise, but I so wish I wasn't interviewing right before summer was to start.  It would be so nice to have extra money coming in, but I so don't want my summer to be affected.  At least if I had started back in the winter, I would already have been in the routine by now, not starting a new routine that limits what we can do as a family during the summer.

Should I take this job and continue my career as a social worker or should I be at home and raise my children and learn a new skill so that when it is time to return to the work force, I  will be able to enter a new career?  Part of me says I don't want this job, bet then another part of me says take it for the money and deal with not having the summer that I had planned.  Maybe take the job and still think about pursuing something else?  Do I want a career that is more creative in nature or do I want to keep that as a hobby separate from my career life?  Do I want to remain a social worker?  Do I want to work while my children are young?  Is there something else I can do to make money that won't impact my family life this summer?  I should just be happy that I have the opportunity to interview and wait to see if I even get a job offer and if it is worth accepting the position.

What do you wish to know?

  3. As Amy wishes for herself so I wish for her also. It sounds like you are so blessed. When I have a burning question I turn to my journal. Before bed I write the question down at the top of a new page. The next morning I wake up and write the answer. Try it. It is really magical. Trust your heart.

    What a most difficult decision. It could be beneficial to at least do the interview. Skills learned and maybe more clarity in what you really want. May your wishes all be fulfilled!

    I was feeling those same sort of emotions over the part time job I just recently took on. I reflected and prayed on it heavily. I even originally turned it down because it was full time with less pay. I was called into another meeting where they said they really wanted me- how could they meet my needs? Everything I asked for I got and I felt my heart at peace- that's when I knew I should accept it and 5 weeks in, I'm glad I did!

    You know what else? I miss Bear in a healthy way when I'm at work, but I appreciate him ever so much more when I'm now home with him!!!!
