Back to Full-Time Blogging – Why I’ve Hung up my Scissors, Again.

Back to Full-Time Blogging – Why I’ve Hung up my Scissors, Again.

Over the past three years I’ve been a complete yo-yo where work is concerned. I wanted to be there for my children, so I said goodbye to hairdressing. Then, after the littlest was born, I thought it might be nice to get out the house again for a few hours. So I went back to the old routine for one day a week, but guess what? It turns out that wasn’t for me either.

Sometimes I think I know what I want, others I’m completely lost and struggle to know if I’m making the right decisions. The fact is though, that I make a good wage from blogging and freelance writing. Don’t get me wrong, I put the hours in. Too many sometimes, if you ask my husband. I love blogging and I just can’t see the point in pouring my energies into a second job that I’m just not so taken with. So I quit.

 

Working around family –

Another reason that me working became an issue, is because of my husband’s hectic work schedule. He’s works so hard in a career that he loves and is constantly progressing. It’s been difficult fitting his shifts around my weekly work day, he managed it for me, but it was a real pain. The thing is I’m a drifter and I’ll pick up different lines of work whenever the mood takes. For him, it’s who he is and frankly that’s more important to me than one day a week to myself.

One of the main reasons I chose to give up my hairdressing role, is that blogging allows me the freedom to work around all members of the family. This is so important right now as the biggest is due to start nursery very soon. I want to be the one that drops her off. I want to be the one that picks her up. I don’t want to miss anything, especially when I’m lucky enough to have choices. The fact is that I don’t have to work and it’s about time I started appreciating the freedom that my situation gives me.

 

Money doesn’t make you happy –

As I touched on earlier, I work hard at home building up my blogging and freelance writing business. I make a wage and I’m proud of that. I’m always looking for more income streams too, which is why I took the hairdressing job in the first place. The money called to me and for that reason, I really don’t believe I thought things through properly. Until a few months later when I felt as though I was chasing my tail. I had even less hours during the week to get all of my work done and I was getting even less sleep than before. Not to mention being a full time mum to two under 3.

The truth is that money doesn’t make you happy. Family makes you happy, hobbies make you happy and working a job you love can make you happy. Grabbing at every penny available does not.

A recent birthday celebration saw our house was filled with the laughter of 8 giddy girls (and 2 giddy grown ups) as the partied to little mix, Taylor swift and Justin timber lake. They had an amazing time being pampered and having their hair put up in bows! I tried to watch how they did this but missed it every time 🙄 The difference this year was made by fab friends (one helped with the party, the other had our 2 year old), a sister in law (@cakedesignbycharl ) who makes the most amazing cakes and a party entertainer (@justforgirlzparties1 )that literally took over meaning I could watch my little girl and the massive smile that permanently adorned her face 💕💫 #girlsbirthdayparty #talkingmums #bowinhair #hairstylesforgirls
