I am really blessed to have a husband who accepts me as I am. Last week I had a very delicate problem, one I was not willing to tell anyone other than my doctor and oldest daughter who is a CNA. I was off work an entire week and he never questioned me once.
I like the fact that neither one of us has tried to interfere, direct, or challenge the others employment choices. I don't make a lot of money, and could make more, but I love my job. Ilove the hours, I love the days off, and I love the daily opportunity to serve the clientele I work with.
This job has been hard to stay on because of the games the folk in charge play. I advocate for the girls and make sure I speak up when I think they girls are being mistreated.
Even though the girls we work with have emotional problems, I seem to meet them at a place they can appreciate. I have expectations of them something they aren't used to. They find themselves loving and hating me at the same time. They often call me back once they leave to thank me for holding them accountable and taking the time to go the extra mile to make sure they get what they need.
I have been struggling with not having disposable money. It is hard to save on my salary and yes, things are really tight.
When I look at the pros and cons, I have to accept that my overall quality of life is 100% better since I have been able to find my balance between work, home and self. It is so hard for me to even think about giving up the serenity I have now, to join the rate race for the sake of money.
I don't know what I'm gonna do. I love my job.
