Most women dream on being successful woman. Having a great job, benefits, and a 401k retirement plan. As I hit adulthood my dream was alittle different. I always dreamt of being a stay at home mom. I wanted to get married and have a huge family that I took care of. My dream involved dirty diapers, wiping tears, piles of laundry and cooking 3 meals a day. This is what I wanted so bad, we are talking white picket fence and the works.
When my husband and I first met, we didn’t try to conceive until years later. I was pursuing my education while working dead end job after another. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my jobs but the money and benefits just wasn’t there. When we finally started trying to extend our family, someone else had a different plan. We tried for years. We tried so hard that I basically lost all hope that I would ever had children.
With that in mind, I jumped into the workforce with both feet. I was going to be successful and nothing was going to stop me. I did it to. I honestly was so proud of myself. I gave it everything I had and my devotion paid off. I landed a desk job in Engineering within a great company. I was paid very well and I had benefits, also included was weekends and holidays off. The best part about this job was that I actually loved the work. Everyday I was pushed to new limits and I was learning so much. My plan was to retire from this job, it was perfect in every way I could hope for.
