This is how I felt today leaving the grocery store. So. Incredibly. Happy.
What I make in this biz gave me the ability to pay for half our grocery bill, and that might not seem like a big deal to you, but it is a HUGE deal to me. A huge step. Something I wouldn’t have seen possible if I hadn’t chosen to walk into freedom despite fear.
It’s taken me a long time to feel proud of what I’ve done in this life from all that I’ve been given. It’s taken a long time to feel like a good mom who is doing the absolute best for her daughter with all of the strength she can muster, even on the hard days. It’s taken a long time for me to not feel like an imposter as a mother. I now know how ridiculous that last statement sounds, but for a while I truly believed I was an imposter even when I grew a literal human being inside of my body.
But you know what helps you grow into who you’re meant to be? Taking risks, chances that offer you goodness even when you’re scared out of your mind.
You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to, fear is always gonna be there, but on the other side of it is always victory. VICTORY.
When we got home, Finn looked up at me with her big brown eyes and asked me, “did you by me some more wipes today at the grocery store?”
And with a giant smile on my face, I could honestly say,
“Yes, yes I did.”
I get to do this for her, all because I said yes to an opportunity.
Don’t let good things pass you by just because you’re afraid of what could happen.
Your purpose is waiting for you on the other side of fear.
