Yesterday I interviewed for a full-time job. For the past 17 years I have worked part-time while taking care of my kids full-time. Now I need to get back to work full-time and am finding it difficult to overcome the fact that I haven’t been employed full-time in quite some time. I have been told over and over again they were concerned that I wouldn’t be able to transition back to full-time employment because I was used to making my own schedule, not only working part-time but working from home as well.
So my prayer today is that I will be judged by the person I am, the accomplishments in my life, which absolutely include my kids, and my life and work skills and not by the number of hours I have logged in an office over the years.
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
