If you had to choose a new career for yourself, what would you choose? (a prompt from MamaKat)
When I was a teen I always thought I’d be a teacher when I grew up. I just loved the idea of teaching the next generation, being around all those kids and watching their world open up before them. I’ve worn a lot of hats in my life in which I have been a teacher, but I never actually got to be a for real teacher. Which is fine. My role as mom brings me amazing joy. I don’t even have dreams of being a teacher anymore. I respect them, and adore them, but spending 5 days a week with 28+ kids doesn’t seem so appealing anymore. You teachers out there rock, seriously. You have the patience of a god/dess.
I think if I could pick anything in the world to be at this moment in my life it would be a toss up between a doula and a midwife. Though, I think I’d go more towards doula, simply because I wouldn’t be in charge of helping to make big decisions in the middle of an emergency that way but would still be able to help and support the mom and family. I love helping moms. I love supporting them. I love ensuring they’re able to make informed choices. I’ve thought about it for a few years now, and it’s still something I may end up doing if I am able. I’m not too old to decide what I want to be when I grow up, right?
