Haven’t you been confused to answer the question from others about “what are you doing?”, “What is your job?” I was confused about that question. My friend texted me asked “so now what are you doing?” I frustrated. I was not sure and don’t know how to reply with that question. I had to take time to think about it.
I was raised up in the family with hard-working and always saved as much as we can. We knew the money value and respected it like something we couldn’t breath if we don’t have it. Sound funny but it’s true though. That idea keeps following with me until now. Probably forever! Who’s know! It’s something in our blood and in our mind. Something is hard to change it.
Then, the date it came. I decided to stay at home and might not go to work for a period of time. It will be 5 years or 10 years from now. Nobody knows as it’s not easy to guess what happens next. Am I happy? Yes, I am. But, and again another “But”, I don’t know what is my position now? What am I doing specifically? As when we go to work, we have a specific title, specific job to tell other that I am a doctor, an accountant, a lawyers, an engineer, or whatever… yeah whatever! But with a stay-at-home mom, we don’t have a job name specifically to tell or to be given.
Whatever your job is. Whatever your title is. If you can live the life with freedom, you love what you are doing, you are successful. Don’t chase up with others’ ideas and social expectations. Live up your life. No matter out there thinking about you. Do the job you love and be true to yourself. You will be successful.
