My work history has included some pretty amazing positions that have been highly stressful, involved a lot of time away from home but also rewarding. I’ve been home for a few months now recharging and am ready to get back to work. The tricky thing is all the positions I’m interested in applying for require me to live overseas for a time, without my family. My children are grown up but still have 3 at home. I’m torn between having employment that is fulfilling and something I want to do and being home with my family which I also want to do. I don’t want to be someone that is miserable in their job and complain about it. I have looked at positions here and nothing is exciting me. I will need to focus on getting the balance right.
