Don't force yourself


 - Don't force yourself
Don't take on too much. You are obviously feeling torn. Sometimes, you think it would be great to be back working, earning money, being among colleagues, having adult conversations, making important decisions, etc. But when you think of your child (and the stress that this sweet little being can cause), you keep having doubts about your plans.

Try to pinpoint what exactly you are missing in your life at the moment and what makes you happy in your current life. You will find a solution that will combine the two. Organization is everything!

But don't take on too much; stay home with your child for another few months, if you feel like it. 

Maybe you can go back part time?

Maybe working from home is the perfect solution for you? Maybe you will set up a playgroup yourself? Have a think about it!
