I shared recently that I never planned on becoming a working mom. Yet, my passion for social media and mentoring others has lead me to working. It’s called working, but to me it’s really letting me play and do what I love. Using skills I have learned through my blogging journey to help our family towards our goals.
In the process of Mark and I starting our own business, people asked me what our 90 day, 5 year, and 10 year plan looks like. The first time I was asked I was caught off guard and I didn’t really have an answer. Then I began thinking seriously about what our goals really are and what does our end game look like. The answer we came up with is our family goals influence our business goals. We do not want to save the whole world and loose our kids. We do not want to build an empire and loose our kids hearts in the process or become disconnected with them.
It’s scary as hell I tell you. Stepping outside of the homechool mom role. I feel like I am standing naked on a stage for all the world to see. I feel like I have the whole world watching and if I belly flop not only could I be physically hurt, but my pride will probably be the most wounded part of me. Yet, to not try at all, to me that would be much worse. If I fail at least I went big, at least I tried, and to me that is beautiful! To me, when anyone tries, even if it ends up not working out, it is not a failure! It’s not! You tried, you got out there, you went big, and that is worth celebrating! You are worth celebrating!
I have four little eyes, ears, and hearts watching me. They are listening as I talk patiently with clients, they are watching me as I cry through my fears, but push on anyways. They are experiencing the joy of field trips, guitar, piano, and golf lessons they are able to take, because I help to bring in a income.
I’m excited to go on the journey of being a working mom. I’m excited to share with you what our journey looks like. In the hopes that you will be inspired and encouraged to press on in your journey.
