On Hold

I don't know that any area of my life is truly on hold. I am not working and therefore not making any marked progress in my career, but I hesitate to say it is on hold. I prefer to think of it as a detour due to construction. I am busy building my children's lives while they are still young enough to build a framework of moral and ethical character around. I am learning more about who I am as a person and not being defined by the effort I would put into a job. I am training for that eventual day when I do return to a career that does not involve my family so intimately. For now, I am by-passing a corporate run life in exchange for the small non-profit of my family and I like it.

  1. Hmmm very interesting (must be seen with a stroking of the chin).
    One of the things that I like about you (but used to drive me nuts) is that you always have to explain yourself. sometimes it can come across as in security, but knowing you I know that it is nothing but an explanation. But read this with that caution it can come across as insecurity and self doubt to people that don't know you well.

  2. That is very interesting. I will need to process that insight for a while.
