In 18 days my kids go back to school. On that very same day, my youngest turns 8 years old. It’s time for me to get busy on the next stage of my life. I need to go back to work. Outside the home.
If you know me, in real life or on twitter, I’ve been saying this for a long time. 5 years to be exact. I’ve had wonderful offers of help from people I know as well as those I’ve met online. Some I’ve followed through on and some I have not.
I’m not sure what’s holding me back. It’s most likely some combination of fear of failure and rejection and not really knowing what I want to do for the rest of my life. Those are just excuses for not doing the hard work of networking and job hunting.
I need to make this the #1 priority in my life. No more dilly-dallying, procrastinating, pretending I’m busy with unimportant chores. I can do it. It’s time to groove.
