Why I Don't Want to be my Own Boss

I just blew your mind didn't I? Some of the blogging community is rocking it being full time bloggers, but others have jobs outside of the blogging world. Many are looking for dream jobs and ladders to climb, but me...not so much.

I have forayed into management. I was climbing the ladder and really advancing into my career. Now I am back out of it and couldn't be happier. Do I miss certain aspects of being a boss? Sure, but I love that I am no longer working the demands of 50-60 hour work weeks trying to sustain my staff and such? No. Do I miss not being able to turn off work? No.
I think a lot of the problem is we are told how important hard work is. But I think those that work the hardest often have to give up everything else. I am just not willing to sacrifice my life for a job.

Do I love my job as a nurse, yes. But I always knew despite how much I love my job, I would be able to put my husband's job first. I do not mind this. I can go to any city and work and he cannot. My husband puts me first in every other imaginable way possible.

Plus I think he is the one that gives up more when we have kids. I mean who doesn't want to spend time with your kids?! He will be working and I would spend more time with kids. What happens if he is working and misses our kids first steps? He works hard so that I can do what jobs I want and when I want.

I am beyond blessed to do what I love, when I love, and how I love.


Give yourself permission to be whomever you want to be.
Anything is possible.

  1. I'm so glad you shared your thoughts on this! Sometimes (at least in the world of social media) it feels like the movement to be your own boss means you're not trying hard enough if you don't want that. Love the last two sentences.

  2. Love this! And you are so right that sometimes when you are working hard you miss out on so much. I am so thankful for how hard my husband works for our family but he misses out on a lot of things at home and moments with out daughter.
