Confession - I've never seen myself as a "career woman." I've never aspired to be a CEO of some major company or even a manager, to be honest. When I was in elementary school, my dream "career" was to be a secretary, actually. As I got a little older, I realized my dream career is to be a wife and a mother.
I started my new job yesterday and someone recently said, "Carrie's got her dream job!" I have to admit, it felt a little off. There are so many benefits to this job and I am super excited about it. I do feel like I'm living a dream. I got a raise. Maybe I can start saving for a house now. I've had all of these great thoughts about what I might be able to achieve now. But none of that is as important to me as being a wife and a mother. None of that matters as much to me. I'd quit in an instant if I had the opportunity to live my dream to be a wife and a mother. Hopefully one day I will. Until then, I suppose I am a "career woman." :)
