I love how thought provoking and well written your post was. I can really relate to your post in the journey I am currently going through. I worked hard to get to a high career position in my industry, then realised I didn't want it anymore. It was making me dreadfully unhappy to be away from my DD for 40-50 hours a week and owning a house didn't seem that important anymore. So after many tears, arguments, sole searching and even a separation from DH we ended up deciding that it was ok for goals and priorities to change and that if we were so unhappy we had to take a chance and do something about it. So we sold out house and moved to a cheaper city a month ago. I'm not working and will go back part time when I'm ready. and I finally feel like I'm not drowning anymore;in debt, other peoples expectations, keeping up appearances as the career mum and I'm finding I'm a whole different person to the the one I thought I was.
You Definately have the talent with words to write professionally if that's what you want.

I completely understand keeping up appearances. Building a house, buying new cars, having the best of everything ... All while feeling uneasy on the inside knowing that it still wasn't enough. Stuff doesn't make you glow from the inside. Being happy and making the right decisions for your family does. Yay for your family

Sometimes what it takes is reading on some website about some person you don't know that had the big epiphany and thus made choices and changed her life without regret to push you to your own epiphany and make yourself the priority.
