I need a career change. I've been teaching preschool for the most of the past 14 years. There are three things that have been bothering me the most. First, I feel fake. I'm not happy to be there, but I have to wear a smile. Second, I'm bored. Nothing is new to me anymore. Third, children have become so disrespectful. The way children are allowed to treat us is uncalled for. Even as an adult I wouldn't treat/speak/disrespect a person like that. It drains me to even think about going to work every day.
Before you respond to me "well why don't you just get a new job?"...just know, I'm trying. Every day. I created a resume for the first time and I have memberships on some of the local career websites. But I only have experience and training in one thing, Early Education. I worry nobody's going to even consider me after seeing almost 14 years of preschool on my resume.
I'm so frustrated.

Today...Hm? Today's stress: I can't get any time alone. It's actually a regular stressor in my life. I wish I could have time by myself. But I feel guilty for that. I always complain that I need more time with our kids, that we need more time as a family, then I complain to be alone...? I don't know, I really just want to sit here, but every time I begin to have a thought or begin to relax, one of my kids or my fiance interrupts with a need, want, question, or (from our toddler) a demand. It's warmer out today, I should go for a walk, but honestly, there's been some trouble in our neighborhood that has affected my family personally and I've become scared to walk it. Plus, I'm tired. Slightly anxious. I just need to be left alone to breathe, think, close my eyes.

I've been a SparkPeople member for one year!! It's been a long year that went by quickly, if that makes sense. When I started here with SP I knew I found something great! This website gave me the information & tools I needed to get me started and continue on my journey. The other members here gave me the support I needed throughout the year. Thank you SP and Sparklers!
But I can't give all the credit to SP. I've seen success and setbacks, but never quit. I've had to change things up and rearrange my Lifestyle. It was me spending the time on my fitness. I had to proportion my meals and count my calories.
And you know what, the hard work paid off because a few months ago I accomplished my goal! Since then I've settle at a comfortable weight right below that goal. And everyday is still work. Why...? Because this is a Lifestyle Change!
My point is, Sparklers, is that you can't give up!! You have to do things you never thought you would, or could, do! You have to find your groove! And DON'T QUIT!
One year ago today I never had imagined I could accomplish so much for myself, but I have. And everyday, for the rest of my Life, I will continue to accomplish my goal!
