1. I’ve just found your site fairly recently but I had to comment that I really like knowing your background – I’m a LEO myself. Two years as a CO, recently switched to patrol. Sometimes it’s hard to remember there’s life on the other side of the blue line – thanks!

    • Yay Kate! I love seeing LEO in the blogging world! It was scary to leave something that was such a big part of my life, but I’m so glad I did. Everyday I realize it more and more.

  2. My husband and I went on a similar journey. I knew the schedule at work was inflexible and not at all conducive to family life, so I needed to be a stay-at-home mom if I was to ever be around my family. We made it happen by moving to an inexpensive area and cutting down expenses, but we got lucky. We closed on the house out of sheer luck a few weeks before the baby was born. Now I need to look to the next step and plan ahead to make our life everything we hope it can be. It can be done!

  3. Thanks for this article! I’ve been wanting to be more goal-minded and have been making some strides in the last year, in terms of acting not just talking about what I want. Because of this post, I created a “2016 and Beyond” goals list. It really helped to put it on paper and also your tip about listing every way you can think of under that goal on how to achieve it. Big thanks and wish me luck!

  4. Hi! I’ve never been unable to hold on a job for long because of health problems. First it was my undiagnosed ADHD, diagnosis for which I had to fight 6 years to get and now other health problems that prevents me to get a “normal” job. And even if, not having much work experience it would be nearly impossible to get one. So I really want to thank you for transforming my view of blogging from an impossible dream to an achievable goal.
