Why I Quit My Six Figure Job to Be a Stay-At-Home Mom


When I was younger, I had big dreams of making it in the corporate world. I was determined to be successful and have a six-figure salary. Little did I know, my dreams would take a dramatically different turn when I got married and had children.

For nine years, I worked in my job with the same dedication, enthusiasm and energy as I had when I began. I was working my way up the ladder, and I was well on my way to getting my six-figure salary. But then something changed.

I started to realize that although my career was important to me, my family was more important. I was spending much more time at work than I was at home. I was missing out on my children’s milestones, special moments and important memories. I started to feel like I was missing out on the parts of life that really mattered.

So I made the difficult decision to quit my six-figure job and become a stay-at-home mom. It certainly wasn’t easy. I had to give up my hard-earned salary, my career ambitions, and my sense of accomplishment.

But the decision was worth it. Becoming a stay-at-home mom has given me the gift of time. Now, I can be there for my children when they need me. I can attend their school events, be present for parent-teacher conferences, and help them with their homework. I can make sure they have a hot breakfast in the morning and that their clothes are ready for school. I can make sure they’re getting the proper nutrition and enough sleep.

Most importantly, I can just enjoy spending time with them. Whether it’s reading stories together, going to the park or just sitting on the couch watching a movie, I get to do it all with my children.

I also get to pursue my own interests and hobbies. I can focus on my fitness, take up a new language, learn a new skill or just read a good book. I can be creative and explore different ways to make our home more beautiful.

Being a stay-at-home mom is not easy. It’s a lot of hard work and can be exhausting. But it’s also an incredibly rewarding experience. I get to be there for my children and watch them grow up. I get to be a part of their lives and experience life with them in a way I wouldn’t have been able to if I was working full-time.

So, although I gave up my six-figure salary and my career ambitions, I wouldn’t change my decision for the world. I’m proud to be a stay-at-home mom and am thankful for the opportunity to be there for my children.
