Nothing in life is as satisfying yet harder than being a mom. The ups and downs accompanied by the many different stages of parenting. We are all mompreneurs with daily wins and challenges. What makes it all worth it is our “WHY”.
Why do we wake up every day and do what we do? What drives us? What motivates us?
This is my “why”.
“I can literally feel it in my soul”. I have heard that phrase used before but never truly knew how that felt… until today.
I sit here, tears in my eyes, hungry for more, confused, yet aggravated at the same time. This emotional rollercoaster is real.
So many questions going through my mind… mostly, “where do I start”?
But I knew I had to do something and some things had to change and NOW!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my life. I have a wonderful family and amazing friends. But there is a dream and burning desire that I can’t seem to shake and it keeps getting stronger and stronger.
“I need to be resourceful” is what I keep telling myself. Besides, I am good at that! I am the queen of using what I have and finding ways to make things work. I just have to get creative!
But how? How am I suppose to do this? I can think of so many reasons why I can’t right now.
I am a mom, a wife, and I am so “busy“!
Wait, are these legitimate reasons or are they excuses?
Or am I scared? Do I lack what is needed? Am I good enough? Maybe these are the things that are holding me back.
NOT ANYMORE! I’m not going to stand around and continue to let my insecurities get in the way of me living a fulfilled life.
I’m going to get focused and eliminate anything that is a waste of time.
I need to reevaluate what I have been doing and make adjustments where needed.
But most of all, I need to JUST DO IT!
I need to feed this hunger that is lingering inside of me.
Don’t worry family. I know you are there. I promise I won’t neglect you. I just want to make a life for you we have never seen before. I want to make you proud.
My children, I will still be there for you and I promise I am not choosing my career over you. I am still here to listen when you need an ear. I will still support you and encourage you to follow your dreams.
My husband, thank you for always supporting me. You go out of your way to make sure I have the time to focus on this part of my journey. I will always be there when you need me. I am never “too busy” for you. I make these promises to you today.
With God and my family by my side, I am not afraid.
Proverbs 3:6 – In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
