I don’t know what to do. I recently closed up my home based business and followed my heart to begin working at a job I feel like I was being called to do. The trouble is that it’s shift work (I’m working nights), more physically intense than I realized and my family still expects me to be “on” and in my full time Mom role when I’m home. I’m exhausted, emotional and frustrated. Did I make the right choice, or should I just quit and go back to what I know?
First, breathe. Your breath is an incredible tool to help you with working through difficult decisions, emotions and situations. I sense in my heart that you are right in answering the call to this new work, but it feels like it needs to be tweaked. Is there any way you can apply to work on the day shift? It feels like there is better energy for you on many levels by you working days. It feels like there is more support at work and more at home. It feels like the routine of you working days will help your family get into a rhythm that matches their life and helps them more easily support you. Then everyone will be happier, especially you.
