Quitting your job - without a backup
After much struggle, I've decided to quit my job. This is a new and scary experience for me, as I don't have another job lined up.
I'll be staying home with my son, and working as a writer and editor. I've always relied on a steady income, so this will be a new experience for me.
But I just couldn't leave my son. I have such a deep connection to him and to wanting to be here for him. This has nothing to do with the work-at-home vs. work-outside-the-home debate. I make no judgments on women who want to work, or feel they have to. This is just what is right for me and my family at this point in time.
I'm terrified, yet excited.
writer and editor for hire!
(It feels good to say that.)
