There are times in our lives that we need to make tough decisions. There are risks that one needs to make to move forward. Changes are difficult to make, but we must change to grow as a person. I have fears just like we all do. Should I stay or should I go, and if I go which one do I leave? Hard choices are never easy to make.
There is no possible way I can continue to work two jobs, and there is no way I'm quitting the hospital. I was lucky enough to be able to get coverage while I started my new job. Working in a nursing home is the most stressful job there is, but I truly love the residents I care for. Maybe that is what sets me apart, but it is time for a change.
My kids deserve it, and although I know it will be hard, I know I must do this. Take the risk and hope for the best. The hospital called me the last two days to come in to work. If I didn't have the other job, I would be able to do it.
On the plus side, I will not only have more time to spend with my kids, but I will have more time to write. Maybe I'll never be a published author, but writing brings me personal satisfaction and I can't tell you what that means to me.
Thank you again for reading.
