It’s time to say good bye!
Quick story so y’all know a little more about me
When I became a mom, I put my personal goals on hold because I needed to raise my little people. Instead, they became my goal and my winning project. I knew that if I gave them 100% of myself, it would one day pay off.
I figured if I could win at parenting, I could succeed at absolutely anything! Being a parent has been the most complex and rewarding thing I have EVER DONE!
My oldest two kids are tucked away at two of the best colleges, killing it in every area of life. My youngest is in 7th grade; everything she touches turns to gold.
My husband and I prayed over them their entire life.
We’ve always said that it doesn’t matter how well we do in life; if our kids grow up to half-ass it in life, then we failed. We had one job, and we failed.
Failure wasn’t an option…
We focused on the things they loved, not what we loved. Our goal was to support their desires and work as a unit.
After receiving my bachelor’s, I was done, but my husband kept going and going and going. His career took off, which meant he worked quite away from home and traveled a bit.
It made sense for me to go straight into personal training because I could work that around my three kids’ schedules. Being home was my priority when they arrived from school, and when they did I would zoom them around to all their extracurricular activities.
Working through my bad days
I had days when I wanted to hide and never show my face again. I was EXHAUSTED!
But I always knew God blessed me with this family for a reason. So if I lost my cool, I would not only let God down, but there would be cracks in what should be a smooth foundation.
I didn’t realize that helping everyone in my household win would set me up for the current season I’m in. I have MOVED into my WINNING SEASON, and this is how I know I’ve moved in…….
Please come back tomorrow for PART 2
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
If you haven’t already answered my question that I left here
What season are you in?, then please please do so!
