Tomorrow

Tomorrow I go back to work full-day.  It’s my first job at a completely new company in almost 10 years and even though it’s a contract for now it’s still all new.  New people, new building, new route to work, new morning routine.  But I’m looking forward to the new challenge and all the people I’ll get to meet.

In the week that I’ve had to think about the change this will bring in our life as it is now I have come to quite a few realisations:

  • I instantly felt an extra rush of love/guilt for the kids.  Because as a working Mom those totally go hand-in-hand.  In some really weird way I’m looking forward to missing them.  Not that I don’t miss them during the day now, but this is different.
  • Emotionally I’m a lot better equipped now to deal with a full-time job.  The girls are bigger and they are with Daniel all day and incredibly well taken care of.
  • We have an amazing support structure.  We have Grandparents, friends and teachers.  We have the entire veritable village it takes to raise a child (or 3 in our case)
  • Maybe I’m just not meant to be a work-from-home kinda person be it right now or forever, but time will tell.
  • I have also realised that Entrepreneurs come in many shapes and forms.  You don’t have to have your own business to be entrepreneurial, you can be so within an organisation.  And that’s ok.  It was a biggie for me.
  • And lastly, this is something for me outside my family where I can make an actual difference.

I can’t wait!!

  1. Sterkte met die eerste dag. Moes jy nou April Fool’s Day daarvoor gekies het?? Gee meer details oor die job (vra ‘n moeder wat nie eers probeer om van die huis af te werk of ‘n entrepreneur te wees nie!)

  2. I just wanted to let you know that you DO make a difference outside your family… But I know what you mean 🙂

  3. Sterkte! I see you had a rough night before the first day work. I get the feeling that those little “co-incidences” are somehow related to twins.

    And that first bullet of yours – so very very true.

  4. Good luck with your first day,you will be fabulous and they will wonder how they ever managed without out you.

  5. Hope you’re having a fabulous first day and that this is the start of a new and happy period of job satisfaction for you.
