So I did it. Told my boss I wasn’t going back to work after my maternity leave ends. I’m at the point in my life where I need to challenge myself and start a new chapter, not do the same repetitive work without any promise of better opportunities. I’ve already begun the most challenging chapter of my life — motherhood — but I want to build something for myself and my family. So I kicked my crutches away and I now look into the unknown and the fear of finding work from home.
I’m so scared and worried. I’m looking at my computer now, wondering where to begin my search. And I’m so afraid I’m going to fail.
