How I Changed From a Career Woman to a Mother, and I Feel Good About That
The change of circumstances. My aim in life was to work and have all my goals fulfilled. After the three years of my college life, I graduated being the top in my class. I used to stay up on Fridays to learn and have good grades in my exams, that would be in the next week, and not party like the other students would do. It was long when I knew that I could write and when by the time I was completing my elementary studies, I had written so much that could fill a cardboard box.
I then had a job right after I was done with my college education at a firm that dealt with technical writing in my hometown. The job was a good job, and the salary was good, but it was still not the job I dreamt about. The job was exhausting, and I would suffer from the carpal tunnel syndrome. When I was done with my dinner, I could not resist from doing the writing as I wanted to become of the authors of a top-selling American novel. My goal in future was to win a Pulitzer and an Oscar.
I had my firstborn, a girl at the age of 28 and by then I was not done with writing my novel and later I had a boy. I had thus another responsibility and thus could not direct all the focus to my career as I did before. I needed to be home with my child and hence I stepped down from the job. I contacted my bosses and told them I could not continue with the job. The project I was working on was now given to someone else to complete it.
Sometimes when I had the kids asleep, I would pick up my computer to try and add up some content to my novel. I would have some time at the coffee shop while my parents, siblings, friends or my husband watched over the kids. While out there, it was not comfortable for me, and I constantly called to ask about the kids’ progress.
Through this site, I have been able to tell my story, and whatever decision I made makes me feel happy. Whenever a chance comes where I will be required to write something, then I will get my computer and work it out. I am sure that I will get to have all that I wanted when I am ready.
