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.
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.
