Big Plans for 2016

Big Plans for 2016

I recently dropped health, vision, and dental insurance at my job because they’re talking about switching me to a part time position. I asked them to wait until the end of the year and they were kind enough to do so, so I dropped insurance and my husband picked up insurance through his work during this year’s open season. In and of itself this wasn’t a big deal, but it’s put some things in motion that I wouldn’t have considered beforehand.

I’m considering…

  1. …no longer being someone’s employee. I say it this way because I’ll still write and take pictures, but it’ll be during times when my son doesn’t need me. We’re waiting until the insurance swap to be sure. We have reason to believe we can live comfortably without my salary.
  2. …having another child. Again, not set in stone. Now that our son is diagnosed we can anticipate what his needs will be. All indications lead us to believe he’ll need less support in the future and not more.
  3. …becoming more involved in the community. I want to meet some of the other women who regularly get together for crafts, book clubs, and just fun in general. There are plenty of local volunteer opportunities which require nothing other than time and patience.

I’ve held on to my job a lot longer than I would have otherwise because of insurance coverage. Part of me wonders if I should have moved on a long time ago. No way to go back and change it now. I can, however, make sure I put myself in a position to do the things I love in the future. It’s never too late to make a chance for the better.

What are your plans for 2016?
