I am currently a stay at home mom, that is because, I can still afford to be one. I can say that as of now, my husband's salary can still get us by with our everyday needs. I know time will come as it is happening very soon, that my daughter's needs will double or maybe triple. In addition to that who knows that there might be a possible addition to the family and with this I presume that I will need to weigh my options and look for a job.
But the question is what job can I get? I know this can be answered by my interests at the same time the work experiences I had before. Considering it, I have worked in customer service probably half of my working life. Prior to that, I have also a background in sales so I can probably apply as Schwartz Lawyers Short Sale Specialist so that I can sell real estate in a flash.

In the light of the matter
Admittedly, everyone has a calling to do. Just because of life's needs we sometimes neglect what we WANT and instead focus on what we NEED to do which are two different things. Sometimes, we are trapped in this dilemma, and usually it is our true passion that is sacrificed.
Safe to say that there are two worlds : what you do for a living and what you were born to do. They are again two extreme ideas that are difficult to connect. Though what you do for a living is the typical norm-its is what you're used to do, maybe doing it for years and probably still doing it now, like a comfort zone, while what you were born to do is quite more daunting and in fact uncertain. This uncertainty often leads us to postponement and neglect of what we truly want. Doing only what you need to make ends meet and sacrificing your true passion often cause us so much stress and oftentimes breakdown. Thus, if you are one who is in this situation, then there should be an outlet for expression of what you truly want to do so as to decrease the level of your unhappiness.
It will be better if we can combine both but a lot of times we can't. I may be writing this as I still need to figure out mine. What about you have you found yours?
