I remember sitting in that nursery on Sunday nights, rocking my sweet 9 month old daughter to sleep, with tears in my eyes, knowing that I had to leave her the next day to go to work. I freaking used to HATE Sunday nights. The weekend was over. Short lived per usual. Only 2 days to feel like I was actually getting to LIVE my life and enjoy my family. Cue the Sunday Night Blues. Every. Single. Sunday. 😫
I had been feeling like there was something MORE for my life for a while. But I was scared to make a change. I remember one day just saying out loud--"Welp, This is it. I'm freaking stuck." Doctorate degree and grad school loans. And there I was working 50 hours a week for someone who didn't give a crap about how hard I worked. I sat there rocking my daughter and I was just OVER it!
So I decided I wasn't DOWN for working long hours to make someone else's dreams come true anymore. I needed to make a move, because no one else was going to change my life but me. So I took a risk and started my first business which I still run today. 🙌🏻❤ And I said ✌🏻to that boss that didn't appreciate my value!
Then 2 years into that business another opportunity was presented. One that I had been TOTALLY hating on for a WHILE. 😳#biggestskepticaward 🏆goes to yours truly! 💁🏼💁🏼
I didn't want ANY part of that online biz crap! 🙅🏼 But the darkness of my life was real. The desires of my heart were DEEP! And when I looked into the mirror I just felt like I needed a new challenge. A change. I needed something different. And I felt like God wouldn't let me to say NO to this opportunity. THANK GOD he knows better than me! 🙏🏻And now #thelegacyproject has become my freaking PASSION! I truly feel like I am finally living my true calling.😍 So listen up--YOU are not trapped! If you are sitting there right now with that sweet kiddo in your arms that you just don't want to leave tomorrow.
If you have the pit in your stomach when you think about Monday morning.
If you keep finding yourself DREAMING about another life. A life where you can call the shots, you don't have to beg someone else to take time off with your kids & hubs, where you can take a vacay..drop an emoji below👇
