Hello! I had a question for you and was hoping you could email me back to discuss? Thanks so much!- Carolyncarolynfallon3@gmail.com
Ok, I've wanted to write in for quite a while. I am struggling - was a stay at home mom for several years, but now, been back in the workforce for a few years. Right now I'm with an organization, that appreciates me, but there is sooooo much work to be done, that the flexibility they 'offer' me, doesn't mean much, when it will just pile up, if I flex my time, and i'm already working close to 60 hours per week. My family life is suffering. But, I feel I am also making a difference in my work. No additional headcount will be approved in my office, so it's just me, doing all my work. Simply need some encouragement, because, right now I feel i'm doing NOTHING well.CB
CB,I'm sorry to hear your struggle right now. It seems in this difficult economy we are in that employers are trying to get so much out of employees so they don't have to hire new ones. I think as CWMs there are times when it seems so difficult to balance all the balls that are in the air. My prayer for you is to be in the moment as much as possible. When you are at work focus on work and when you leave work focus on home. I know that is easier said than done. Also, I pray that God will give you strength for the task of each day. He is sufficient and His mercies are new every morning. I also pray today God will surprise you with His goodness. He loves you and sees your struggles.
