I have FOUR weeks left of work.
For me, working has never been a passion. I haven’t yet found a job that really speaks to me; something that I would consider ‘my calling’. And to be honest, I don’t know that I will find it. I envy people who get to work at something they love every day; those people who come home from work and feel as though they’ve been doing exactly what they want all day long. I come home and try to savour the precious few hours I have before I have to go back. And this seems to be the case regardless of where I work (there have been a few exceptions to this rule). I keep getting close, but ultimately keep missing the mark.
So when people ask how I feel about leaving the workplace, how I feel about having a year off, I find it hard not to jump for joy. I am thrilled for this chance. I am so, so excited for the opportunity to stay at home for an entire year with our new little girl. I know it won’t be easy, I know that its not a year-long vacation. But I’m looking forward to it just the same.
Do you love what you do? Are you looking forward to some time away from the workplace, or are you desperate to get back at it?
