I am seriously considering a complete career change which would require me working full time and on occasion being away from home for a few weeks at a time (definitely for initial training).
I am a mum of 3 and have been with my husband 15 years. He is coming to the end of his military career and I feel it's my time to have a career. I've spend 13 years following him in his job and basically starting from scratch every 2 years when we've moved. I've always put my family first and I'm struggling with the fact that I will be the one out of the home all the time.
My eldest 2 children will be at boarding school as of September, so it'll just be little one at home.
Is it selfish to want to go off a rediscover myself and try something new? My husband is very supportive and likes the idea, I'm just doubting the logistics etc.
I think it’s definitely time to do something for you and your career- I stepped up massively earlier than intended (my youngest was 2) but felt like my career had been on hold for long enough and the opportunity came up. I don’t regret it as I’m so much happier. I just make sure I put aside limits in eve and weekends to enjoy family time. My dh is also supportive which makes a big difference
