A balancing act for sure - especially when the suffering comes through presence..

I know sometimes I was "home" but still not present. Work still taking my focus. The boundary of leaving work behind challenging to set.

In the end I left, because I no longer loved it enough to sacrifice time with my girls.

My identity shifted.

If I am to go back into the workforce - I have a pull back to retail - some fond memories of working in fast food joints, supermarkets and camera stores while putting myself through school/travelling.

Thanks for writing too. Amplifying the costs of working in retail.

Thank you for being you.
