Those of you who have been following my blog since its inception on Sept 9, 2008 (thanks Mom) know that I founded this blog as a vehicle for self exploration. I wanted to discover what makes me tick, my strengths and weaknesses, and plot a course for the rest of my life. Would this include busting back into corporate America at first opportunity or remaining at-home with the lion's share of all things domestic?
I'll skip the pro/con list of working away from home vs. working at home (sorry Mom). I know from experience when trying to compare Option A vs. Option B, I usually have already made-up my mind and go through the motions of doing the list to further justify my choice. I won't lie, I have a clear cut leader this time as well.
What I'm asking is what questions you would ask yourself if you were in my situation? Assume that you don't have to work (outside the home), but you wonder if you've ever given your career a fair shake. You enjoy spending more time with your kids, but you miss the (face-to-face) adult interaction. You've always felt productive at work, but sometimes have difficulty being that "self-starter" at home. Any thoughts, comments?
For additional background and incite, here is my very first entry. If you're a friend/relative from Facebook, please send me an e-mail.
