Below is an excerpt from a Facebook post I made earlier today:
I loved my job at Mesaba. There's not a better bunch of stand-up people out there as the group I was proud to call my co-workers. Maybe that's the biggest reason that in the 10+ months since I was laid off there have only been a handful of job opportunities that interested me even a little. Maybe I'm too picky? Or maybe in my heart I know that I wouldn't be happy at most of the companies I have looked at. And all through the process, my old, pre-Mesaba life was calling out to me as well. Now, after careful consideration and lots and lots of weighing pros and cons, I've decided to take the first step in regaining my day care license.
I don't know if I'll go through with it in the end....I've just put out the first feelers. But I find myself more at peace than I've felt since my last day at Mesaba. I find myself more and more excited over the plans I've already started to make. I do believe in my heart I've already made my decision. The family is behind me, and I'll once again be earning an honest wage in addition to doing something I love. I have no idea how long the licensing process takes these days, and if it will go faster for me because of the licerse I previously held for 13 years. I also don't know what the need for this service is in my neighborhood, and a thousand other things. Maybe it won't be practical in the end. But the first step has been taken, and I'm really excited!
I thought I said it pretty well there....and I wanted to share the news with my Spark Friends as well as my Facebook friends. I've been distracted lately, mulling this huge decision over and over in my head, and dixcussing it with my family. I hope this new venture pans out for me....and look forward to telling you all about it along the way!
