My Last Day of Work

This is going to be a very personal blog post so if you don't want to read it I understand. Today was my last day of work at eBay, I was a full time web developer. I loved my career and I worked very hard to get my degree. Graduating college was one of my proudest and happiest days. Unfortunately this year has been a bad year for me. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and I have been struggling with health problems myself. It wasn't until recently that I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. It soon became apparent that I would no longer be able to work full time and my husband and I made the decision that I would become a stay at home mom.

I am happy that I now get to stay home with my beautiful daughter and that I am lucky enough to be able to do so during these tough economic times. I am thankful to my husband for his support and love but I am sad that I have  lost a part of my life that I worked so hard to get. I feel like a part of me is gone and I don't know how to get it back. I hope that this change will help me be a better mother, wife, and daughter.

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." --Steve Jobs
