FIRST WEEK HOME

Well, my first week of "working from home" has come and gone and I've documented a lot of it on instagram. Not gonna lie, it's been a bit of an emotional roller coaster - elation! fear! excitement! frustration! insecurity! Part of my frustration stems from how slowly people seem to be adjusting to my move. I knew that this would be a possibility and I firmly believe that I made the right call for me long term, BUT it's still bumming me out a bit. Patience, not so much my strong suit. The fear comes from worrying that I won't be able to help support our family. All of these crazy feelings aside, it has been a joy to spend all day with my little girl. We told each other repeatedly that we were the best (Matilda fully in on the joke which was hysterical), we sang Adele at the top of our lungs, we danced in the kitchen. We also had some tantrums, power struggles, etc but I am the boss (at least that's what I keep telling myself, ha!). Just so, so thankful for the opportunity to have this time together, to spread my wings. Leaning on God big time and trusting that we made the right decision. - Lesley

  11. I understand how you're feeling . . . but you're right, it takes time. And you know what? I'm sure you made the right decision because so far, it's making you happy, but the best part is, it's not like your decision is/was irreversible. So nothing to worry about! You'll be just fine. :)
