Cues, the great "Its So hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" by Boyz II Men. Saying goodbye to yesterday won't be so hard but saying goodbye to my "mom bun", "yoga pants", and "pink fluffy robe" that I absolutely adore will be because this Momma is heading back to work outside of the home front. For over six years my husband and I both decided that it would be best for me to stay at home with our children. Actually, I already knew that's what I wanted to do once I started having children with the one that God had sent for me (check out my bio in the "About" section). However, I'm just so blessed to have a husband who is pro stay at home Momma's. But these past six years have not been easy. Sacrifices have been made, vacations have been canceled, dreams have been put on hold, and much more. But till this day, having the ability to stay at home with my London Victoria and Braxton Alexander has been the best decision ever & I will make all of those sacrifices again if I had to choose.
This past summer I made the decision that I wanted to go back to work, selfishly because I wanted to buy more clothes (what else did you expect?! Us women like clothes... ok, a lot of clothes! lol) but most importantly I wanted to take some of the financial stress off of my husband that he has been carrying since we've gotten married. But I didn't want to go to any type of employment. I remember during my journaling time with God, I told Him that if I was going to be pulled away from my dream job, staying at home with my children. I wanted to go to my next dream job, which is designing and decorating homes. & because I am His child and He gives His children the desires of their hearts, I am proud to say that after six long interviews since September of this year, you are now looking at the next Interior Designer Consultant of Ethan Allen.
But let me point this out to you. I have no Interior Designing degree. Not one certificate in decorating. Actually my degree is in Family Studies. I've never went to school for this. I say this not to boast on how well my designing and decorating skills are, because... they're good. However, I'm saying all of this to brag on the one and only true living God. If He's given you the gift, best believe He's going to put you in the position to be used. The real question is what do you with what He gives you. But baby, that's a whole nother blog and another time.
I'm super duper excited for this new season in my life. I don't believe in luck, but I do believe in prayer. So, please pray for me, as well as my family as we embark on this new journey.
Bye bye mom bun. Bye bye yoga pants. & bye bye pink fluffy robe... Hello cute hair, hello dress pants, dresses and skirts, and hello stylish blazers!
