So now is the time to start thinking about work after maternity leave. It sucks. I technically still have 4 months left but if I am to look for a new job instead of going back to the old one, I have to do that in the next two months. I really, really don't want to. How do moms do this? Entrust your most precious possession to someone else? I know of lots of people who were looking forward to going back but I'm just not one of them. I love the freedom I have to do whatever the heck I want to in a day.
The other reason I dread going back to work is that I feel I have no direction. I'm one of those people who hasn't found their passion yet. I haven't figured out what I want to do for a career. It's very frustrating. I have a husband and friends who are doing what they have dreamed about for 10 years. How do I find out what I am meant to do? Or do I spend my life just working a job instead of building a career?
