For the past 2 years I have worked in a great local lumberyard. I love my job, the people I work with, the customers I encounter (most of them anyway), the big stacks of various species of wood stacked high and all the aromas that they hold. I love the smell of the brewing coffee and fresh cut walnut in the morning, the men I work with who have become like my own brothers, the feeling of actually enjoying my job and all that comes with it. All in all I love my job. Recently I applied for a position at a plastic injection molding company as a mold tech and I have been hired. With another child arriving in a month I feel I can’t really turn down a job thats paying me a starting wage that’s double what I’m making now. However it’s hard to shake the guilt and I suppose fear of walking away from a job that I love. After all had I not worked here I’m not sure I would have got into woodworking. Now that I feel it’s become my passion It feels so wrong to walk away from it but I guess ya gotta grow up sometime. It’s gonna be a new adventure and I suppose I should just embrace, I’m just not as excited as I thought I would be. Plus those sweet discounts are pretty nice to have, haha. I’m excited to learn something new yet fearful of the unknown, well I guess I just gotta hold on tight and hope for the best. Life always works itself out.
