Just about everyday is a hectic day for me. I have four children, which keeps me on my toes constantly. I have been working in a group home for a little over four years. For the last two years, I have been a senior staff, which is similar to being an assistant supervisor. For years I have been trying to get promoted to supervisor, but our company kept going through changes, which always washed away my hopes of being promoted.
This year our state added more funding for DSPs, which is Direct Support Professionals. DSPs are the ones who support our individuals on a daily basis. Since we finally have more funding, they also decided to hire supervisors. It was finally my time to shine! I applied for the position and I knew I had a good chance because of my dedication and hard work throughout the years. I take my job seriously and I truly enjoy helping people, which makes what I do come naturally. I got the promotion about two weeks ago, so I’ve been extremely busy learning my new role. I also write for Babygaga still, which takes up a lot of my time. As you all know, were now using My Bipolar Mind and Clever Thoughts, which has also been time consuming.
I’m still getting adjusted to all of my life changes and I’m hoping I can come up with a way to manage my time wisely. I want to finally finish my degree in Psychology, but I need to focus on everything else I have going on before adding something else into the mix. My life has changed drastically in the last few months, but for the most part, it’s been positive changes. I’m also a Sunday school teacher and I truly enjoy it. I teach kindergarten and my oldest son is my classroom helper. I keep myself very busy, but there are days where all I want to do is sit around and relax.
No matter how busy we are, we need to try our best to take time out for ourselves. We need time to unwind once in a while and do things that we enjoy. I do enjoy my job and writing, don’t get me wrong, but I also enjoy watching movies, taking my kids out, and couponing. I was an extreme couponer, but with all of the extra things I’ve been doing, I haven’t had the time for it. I finally started getting back into it today because I don’t want to give up that part of my life. Hopefully, I can start to adjust to all of these hectic changes and find a balance, so I can enjoy everything that I’m striving to accomplish.
