What will I become when I grow up? Part 1 of many….

Yep.  Since giving up work my imagination has run wild on this topic.  What will I become?  Should I be studying during the day so that when the time comes I have another qualification under my belt? Well,  I answered one part of this question – I don’t think I am cut out to be a psychologist.  I enrolled thinking that I could combine the love I have for my kids with something professional – child psychology.  Boy there is a lot of work involved in studying psychology and I hate statistics.  I tried on the course for two weeks but soon came to the realisation that as a perfectionist there would be no way I could study this course and have a life at the same time.  The course suggested I needed to spend 20 odd hours on it but I ended up spending more time than I had and my home life began to suffer.  All of a sudden the reason I left work – to spend more time with the kids was lost.  So back to square 1 on that front.  Child Psychologist – cross that one off my list.

Why mummamorphis?

After living the corporate high life for 20 years as a Marketing Manager for some fairly big corporations I have decided it is time for a change. I have two cheeky monkeys who are growing up too quickly and even though I had managed to create some balance in the first years of their lives I have come to the realisation that soon enough they are going to be too cool to want to hang out with their mum so I have decided to put the corporate world behind me and concentrate on them.  I am going to volunteer at their school and sports clubs, I am going to sit down with them to do their homework and I am hoping that somewhere along the line I will find out what my next calling will be.

Mummamorphis is my way of not only sharing my journey through this transition, I am hoping that it will also lead me to where I need to go next.
