I confess. I used to look at my friends with kids and think, “that looks exhausting!” Don’t get me wrong, I have always loved kids, but the parenting aspect seemed really really hard, and I didn’t know if I had it in me! But last night as we were lying in bed, I teared up as I told Johnatan just how much I love being a Mom. How I find pure joy in teaching her how to hold a spoon, or how to clap her hands, or scoot her bottom as she learns to crawl. Even the hard stuff brings me joy, like training her to sleep through the night, or tracking her daytime patterns so that we could establish a feeding/nap schedule, or changing 100 diapers a day, some of which actually get on me. Ha! But, my goodness, when she curls up in my lap, collapses on my chest, and gives me a big, wet, gummy kiss – my heart explodes! ???
Maybe you look at my business the same way, and think, “I could never do that.” But, if nothing else, parenting has taught me to never rule anything out. For that thing you think you can’t do, may very well be connected to one of your greatest joys. I didn’t know I enjoyed leading a team because I had never had a team to lead until now. I didn’t know I enjoyed creating fun challenges and inspirational content for others until I started this. What if you discovered a joy in you that you never knew was there? What if you gave that joy a place to thrive? What if this could ignite a fire in you? What if this opened up resources that allowed you to fuel a passion you’ve had sitting on the back burner? What if your YES could impact another life?
It would be my honor to lead you in this opportunity and help you discover the joy that it has brought to me and so many others.
