Moms you have permission to dream and see those dreams come true at all stages of your life!
What if I told you it was not selfish to have your own personal goals and dreams while being a mom? What if I took it even farther and said not only is it not selfish to dream but it’s a great example to your kids if you dream AND go after your dreams while raising them!
No matter their age, baby, toddler, teens or adults!
You showing them dreams come true will change their life and yours for the better.
Do you believe that you could raise your kids and make time to go after your dreams?
My kids are 8, 2 and 1 and this year I am excited to run after some personal dreams of my own. I decided to think big not small.
For the last year and a half I have been a stay at home mom and I have struggled to find meaning in my job as mom and homemaker. I have struggled with laziness and over booking myself.
And maybe the worst of it all has been the pressure and guilt I have put on myself if I didnt do enough or if I was doing to much for everyone else. Finding balance is so hard!
So this year I decided it is time! Not only would this coming year be for my kids and family but also for me! They say you cant have it all…but this isn’t just about finding me time. This is about living life differently as much as an example to my kids as it is for myself.
The norm is that being a stay at home mom is all about your kids and your time will come. Why not actually enhance your kids childhood by showing them that despite where you are in life that you can still go after your dreams! You are the example to your kids that despite the odds and what the world throws at you, you can do it if you make it a priority and work hard!
I want my kids to forget excuses and run after their dreams in life!
