Making Things Happen

August 24, 2013

After a bit of a rough start last week (first week in new team/role, followed by a delightful vomiting bug over the weekend), it’s been a rather nice week.

The baby, or at least my stomach seems to be growing nicely. I bought some new maternity pants and am wearing them already at 13 weeks. (Don’t you just love muscle memory?) Now we’re over the 12-week mark, I’m slowly talking more about pregnancy stuff and looking towards the birth with optimism, after my initial wobble.

The thing I’m concentrating on now more than ever is what happens to me in the long term or moreover, what I will make happen. Looking back, I don’t think I was ever satisfied as a project manager in the corporate world. During my time in the third sector, I dreamed about the perks and glory that would come with working in a corporation. What a mistake! Being part of a big, profit-making machine with sometimes ungrateful, downright mean clients is by no means what I made it out to be with my rose-tinted glasses, from the other side of the fence. So whilst the first two weeks in my new role have been pretty good, I’m listening to my heart and looking back to my roots for the answers to my career-dilemma: How can I make something good happen, earn money and take care of a family with a partner who works shifts in with the bargain?

Answers on a postcard please!
