Kumon-wise, that is. Work-wise.
My part time job/business keeps on growing. It’s a bit like Topsy!
Last week, I won an award at Kumon, for excellence in my Kumon centre ($500! Woohoo!).
I have also been invited to go to Japan for a Kumon Conference ( 5o years of Kumon ) in December. Around the Feast of St Nicholas – December 6. For a few days or a week…
But I am totally unsure about leaving the family for such a thing. I mean, my main life is my vocation , then all my other stuff.
Should I stay or should I go ( as the Clash sing).
Kumon has also asked me to consider opening another centre. Nearby, soon-ish. This means I would start a new Centre from scratch and hopefully build up student numbers, helping children with maths and English and what we call life skills – commitment, independence, perseverance, time management, study skills…
So, I would run two Kumon centres. Eventually more money – good for old age, at retirement. But is the cost of time worth it?
I am a pretty high energy person, I guess, and, quite frankly, at the moment I do not feel that all the extra things I do, my work and all my volunteer stuff, detract from my main vocation.
I am bad at choices. People ask me to do things for them and nine times out of ten, I will do it. This may be my nature, I think I tend to be more yes than no.
Being a yes girl has sure got me into trouble in the past. So, I am trying to discern the right thing to do now.Yes, I am praying, but I suck at discernment…
Not only should I stay or should I go but should I work more? How would this be, logistically speaking?
What would you do? 🙂
P.S. Edited to add ~ just found this quote on Cindy’s blog. Maybe it will help me discern…”True happiness lies in giving ourselves in love to our brothers and sisters. “~ Pope John Paul II
