BIG Life Changes!!!

Hello everyone!!!

I wish I could have gotten this post up sooner, but hopefully you will see it today. 

I have some exciting news to share with you all. 

I have quit my job. 

Remember that job that made me stress so much and my anxiety level an all time high?  That job I worked 6 days a week?  That job that I loved yet, it made me a crazy person with no life?

Yes, the job I worked at for almost 3.5 years I just left.  I put in a 2 week notice on June 30th but worked up until last Friday.  Ok so enough about the boring details.  I had just literally hit my breaking point and I couldn't deal anymore.  We had always said I would stay home when we had kids, so we are just getting a jump start on the staying home part. 

Hubby's work has changed and he has his own business now and I can help him with that now too.  He works a lot and someone needs to be able to run this house and make sure he has what he needs.  We both run better when things are organized and clean. Plus I have been feeling convicted a lot lately. 

Genesis 2:18-19 "The Lord God said, It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

I am my husbands helper.  Every married woman is their husband's helper.  I see no problem with women working, unless it interferes with running your home and helping your husband.  My husband needed me and wanted me to work for years but now we have been married almost 8 years and he sees that I am struggling. I have no time, I have no energy and I was grasping to have joy.  I have a house I want to fix up, clean and keep maintained and he has a business and we have pets and I have a lot to do here, not to mention take care of myself and my needs.  He agreed it was time for me to quit.  I am going to stay at home, hopefully forever. I want to blog too but I want my focus to be a housewife.   I hope one day we will have children but until then I am going to try to be the best housewife I can be.  That may sound very 1950's to you but its what is in my heart and what I desire to do, and what I feel like I am called to do.  I am so incredibly thankful for this opportunity that I have prayed about.  I am so looking forward to staying at home and also seeing more of my family!

Ok so my question to you guys you want to see more about my day to day life on here?  Or just food and workouts?  I joined the gym today!  I am so excited.  I already did a dance cardio class this morning.  I will be back on later tonight to post my workouts/eats for the day. 

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and thank you for reading!!
