Find a Career Within One of Your Passions
Just because you are going back to work does not mean that you have to go back to work in the same field that you worked in before you had children. Re-entering the workforce is bound to make the logistics of your everyday a little bit more difficult, and you may find that there are some emotional side effects too since you will be away from your children now. However, if you can find work in a field that you are truly passionate about, you will find the transition to be much easier. That way, despite missing the kids, you will gain a great sense of fulfillment at work, and that will help balance your emotions about going back to work.
Whether your skill set is in accounting, sales, marketing, or teaching, try to find a position within a company that is involved in your passion – be it gardening, animal rescue, cooking, home design and construction, sports, or whatever else it is you enjoy.
