While chatting with Boss last week he asked what it would take to make Hubs and I stay here. My first thought was to say “Not Much”. But I didn’t say that. I just told him I had to think about it.
So all weekend, I thought about it He had asked what I wanted in salary, etc. What, if anything else would it take. Then when I was online early Sunday morning, I saw this saying. It stopped me in my tracks and made me think even more. (Yeah I did get a headache from it all)
I admit Hubs and I are still scared at the thought of moving to a new place and starting over. We’re still angry some days when we are too tired to remind ourselves to stay positive and be happy that we have this wonderful chance. We are human and change is hard.
So when I got in yesterday, I knew I would have to give Boss an answer. I had numbers in my head. I knew what it would take financially. But do I really want to stay?
And the answer is…………………Not so much.
Despite the whole angry and scared thing, Hubs and I are excited. We have plans for the things we can do with the kids. Watching the youngest play football. Watching the granddaughter ride horses and what ever else she puts her mind too. Watching the eldest wrestle and going to band concerts. Sunday suppers. Holidays, birthdays spent together instead of being 600 miles apart for those big days.
So my answer to Boss was “Not A Thing”. We want to live OUR life plan and not fall into someone else’s plan for us. Yeah, I admit, it’s good for my ego to have someone want me to stay around that badly. But also, in all truth, part of the reason we are in this shape is because I fell into a trap of trying to live someone else’s plan for our life. Accepting less than what I am worth. Bottom line, we’ve ended up with Not Much.
It’s our choice and our chance to change it.
