Harriet Tubman once said…
“Every great dream, begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”
We are all busy. We all have obligations that hold us back from doing what we love, what we daydream about, what we are passionate about. But, there comes a time when you have to look at your life and figure out what’s actually holding you back from pursuing that dream! Is it your job, your kids, your spouse/partner? Yes, we all need to work to survive, and it’s important to spend quality time with your family, but, are you HAPPY? If the answer is no, then you need to change something. We have one life (as far as we know) and I don’t know about you, but I want to spend it doing something I love!!
So here I am, a 39-year-old, single mom with 4 kids (all challenging in their own way), starting my very own business. Doing something I have been dreaming about for so many years! I could have waited a few more years (until the kids are grown and not so needy…although I hear that never really happens), but why wait?? Where is waiting going to get me? I am all about taking chances, believing in the unbelievable and making things happen!
Have you been thinking about making a change or starting something new. If so, what is stopping you? If it’s fear or lack of faith in yourself, dig deep, find what drives you and GO WITH IT!!
