I’m at that point in my life where I feel like I’m starting to FINALLY figure things out. I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mom but beyond that, nothing. There are many things that I like to do, but not very many I could see myself doing as a career or life choice. On one end, I really want to be a stay at home mom and home school. I do have the unique situation, however, that my husband is home during the day with us until he has to be at work at 2pm. On another end, I really miss working. I guess I just feel like I’m here all day and could use a couple hours to myself.
So here are my thoughts on the matter.
I really enjoy doing makeup and I would love to learn how to do hair. I have considered this before but felt it would be too expensive for me at the time. The community college up here is going to have a cosmetology program in the fall! It may not be some fancy school, but it’s a start for this small town. Anyhow, since my husband is the only person working we are technically a low income household so I think I could get government assistance if it worked out that I could go. I’m going to a meeting next tuesday about it so I can find out more of when the classes will be. My hopes with doing cosmetology school is that I would be able to expand more with my Mary Kay business and branch out to other things like doing weddings and other special events for people, essentially working part time and still stay home with my son.
Another thing I have been considering lately is becoming a group fitness instructor! Pop pilates by Cassey Ho now makes it posible to become a pop pilates fitness instructor, and I LOVE blogilates! I was considering doing this last year after I had my son. I am currently doing P90X3 and it’s just inspiring me to do more with it. I miss doing pilates all of the time like I did in college, it was so much fun and I’ve always enjoyed doing it, ever since I was a teenager. Three years ago, I did P90X and my friends would ask me to workout with them so I could show them what I have learned. I would go to the gym with them and give them pointers and it was so much fun. I took a lot of fitness classes in college as well as doing P90X and I just really enjoy working out and helping people workout, too.
It’s a tough one because both of these paths involves me teaching and helping people in one way or another. I love to teach, but unless it’s my child, I don’t want to be a teacher. It just isn’t for me. BUT I feel like this has aspects of everything I love: teaching, helping, empowering, loving and encouraging women,
So how do I decide?!
