November 2nd will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the day I decided to live my life by Faith and not sight. It's so easy to say, "have faith," but to actually do it is another story. 5 years ago today, I left financial security to be nothing more than a mom. I didn't have aspirations of becoming anything "great." I didn't leave my career to become an entrepreneur. I asked God to give me what to desire and He gave me the desire to be a mom. People around me thought I was insane. Who leaves a career to become a mom these days? They would ask me, "so you're just gonna stay home and be a mom?" Yes. "What are going to do for money?" I don't know. "You're gonna let your husband take care of you?" Yep. And then the typical comments came in. "You'll be back to work." Haven't been back since. "I couldn't let no man take care of me." Hence why you're still single (cough) " That baby is gonna drive you crazy! You'll put her in daycare." You're right, she drives me insane, but has spent every day of her life in my care. See, people will always doubt the unfamiliar. Things that they didn't have the faith to do, they feel can't be done. But with God all things are possible. I didn't have the how, but He did. I didn't have the answers, but He did. All I had was faith and that was all He needed to work with it. Fast forward 5 years later and He has blessed my home beyond belief. I've been able to do what I love, earn income, travel the world, be featured in national magazines and ads, all while be being a MOM. Today's world glorifies women who choose their careers over their children. But I'm a witness that putting my home first didn't stop me. Instead of leaving my family behind to pursue a career, God made them apart of what I do. I am blessed to be able to show women the beauty of motherhood and how being a wife and mom is just as successful as anything else. I don't find pleasure in proving people wrong, but i do find joy in proving to myself that faith still works. Stop listening to people and just have faith. They can't see what God sees, so trust His vision for your life.
