Maternity Leave is Over

Posted on the 18 September 2018 by Mattie @comfyconfident

Back to work I go.

I am excited and nervous, energized and exhausted. I love my kids more than I ever thought was possible and I really want to find a way to be home with them more, but at the same time, it is so nice to get up and out every day, interact with adults, have things to do and feel like I am in a routine. My husband said to me last night, “you have been a different person this past week, it is the happiest you have been in 4 months.” I love to think that I would be able to start my own business and work from home but maybe I am just one of those people that needs to work. I need the human interaction and to get out of the house. Who knows!? It’s only been a week, but I have so many thoughts about what I want for the future, how we will manage work and school and what is best for our family. I don’t have the answer but I worry and think about it a lot.

Maternity Leave is Over

I am trying to take steps that will set us up for the future. That is why I am becoming a Health Coach but it is hard. Working full-time, being a mom and then trying to go to school and start a side hustle is tough (plus I want to relax at night and watch tv with my husband).

I know I don’t need all the answers right now, but I want them. The anxiety of not knowing can be paralyzing and I just want it to go away. For now, I will continue to work, learn and parent the best I can. That is all I can do!
