I was stuck. I cried on the way to work and on the way home every day. Failure as a mom, a teacher, a wife, a person followed me. Winter break couldn’t come soon enough.
One day over the break, I dropped R off for a play date with a friend. The other mom and I chatted for a minute. She mentioned how she was starting a business with the flowers she loves, and offered a book she had finished that had inspired her to do so. Being the book junkie I am, I willingly took it.
Then my world changed . . .
I had an epiphany! In just a few chapters, I realized I was the one stopping me. Before I picked R up two hours later, I had bought a domain name and written my first blog post. Over the rest of the break I outlined my first month of goals and wrote daily in my new gratitude journal. For the first time in a long time, I dreamed of where I wanted to take this thing that had been rattling in my head begging for a chance to become more.
2020 is the year of perfect vision, so I figure it is a good time to revisit the book that started this all for me. I’m re-reading You are a Badass by Jen Sincero, and I hope you get a copy and come along with me!
What have you been wanting to do? Which places you have wanted to visit? Who do you dream of being? This is a good year to break free from the lies you have been telling yourself and GO FOR IT!
Before you go, I ask you for three things. First, leave me a note of one thing you are going to do today to stop doubting your greatness. Then, read the book. Finally, let’s have an honest chat about how you are going to love yourself better by becoming free to live amazing.
