    Ah, something I quoted at the end of a resignation letter to a boss that refused to change my hours to accomodate me, after having my 4th child. He agree'd initially, shook my hand and then 1 week before my return, went back on his word. I had been there 14 years. So, I quit.

    I am happier than I have ever been, working part time, with more time for giggles, cuddles and joy :) he did me a favor!

    sometimes, forced change is the best change of all :)

    Cheers,
    Jan

    Amazing ~ This was posted on the chalkboard at the coffee house I stopped at yesterday. I came right home and put the quote on my blog. And now, here it is again! I think God might be trying to tell me something! It's an awesome reminder to keep our priorities our priorities. Thanks for this post today!

    I'm on medical leave from a crappy job (what matters least) and I am savoring every single minute that I get to be at home with my children over the next few weeks (what matters most). I already knew that my job kept me from my kids, but I'm more motivated than ever to change it!

    Love Goethe. Studied him and his works a lot while I was at college, in his native tongue though. Great words!

    Great quote. Just snapped a picture of it and I am going to write on my dry erase wall for the family to see.

    Thanks for this Ali. I feel like it came at just the right time for me. I'm about to uproot my family, leave a house, neighborhood and friends that my family and I love, to take a job 2,200 miles away (in a location that I'm not sure we like, let alone love) so that I can spend more time with my husband and son. It's terrifying and I waiver been excitement and panic on a daily basis. I keep reminding myself that time with my family far outweighs a house or location (or money), but sometime it's hard to fight back the panic. I've been thinking about you and coming to your blog a lot during this time... it always reminds me of what's really important. Thank you for that.
