That is a great perspective. Thank you! My current work-from-home job gives me flexibility, a great benefit that allows me to balance my current income needs with future goals. Sacrificing some of the time I could spend working to write is worth it, especially considering the long term view. :)

"I do hope people will stop universalizing their own experiences and start focusing on what's best for their family, instead of judging others for different decisions." Beautifully said, and agreed.

I've heard that before, too, Kim and it is SUCH great advice! I don't have kids yet, but we live across the country from both of our families. I'm glad to hear it can be done. :) Any tips?

I have a question for you- has the amount you're earning from your blog ever made you feel weird about taking time for your writing and paying for help? I have struggled a lot with feeling like writing is a "waste" of time, financially speaking, even though it's something I love and gives value to those who read. I don't have kids yet, but even spending time on my blog that I could otherwise spend earning income makes me feel guilty sometimes. My husband wants me to spend the time writing and thinks it's worth it, and I do, too... most days. Just curious if you've ever felt anything similar. Based on the healthy sense of this post, probably not. :)

Just found your blog and I love it! Thanks for writing. I grew up in [Northern] California and moved out of state when I got married immediately after college. I struggled to find friends and it wasn't until we moved again, to Charleston, SC, that I really felt I had community, and it took a lot of time and effort to nurture those relationships. However, I was struck by how much easier it is here in the South culturally to build friendships than it was in California or Arizona, even as a California native with built in friends. Thanks for sharing your perspective on a topic that we all struggle with in early adulthood.
