I find it very hard to talk about myself (unless I had a glass of wine at a dinner party) because I am not an expert at anything. I have never won a race, even though I run every day. I haven’t even won a raffle, and that includes the time I bought hundred entries. What I do know is that inside each and every one us, lives a person with dreams and goals. I know this because I found this person within myself and it got me to thinking about the rest of the world.
The tough part of coaxing out the “dreamer” at this point in our lives is that many of us have children. Sometimes the dreamer gets put aside so that we can give 100% of our energy to our families and friends. But, I am convinced that many of us actually give too much of ourselves in order to take care of others and we completely forget about ourselves. The irony is that in living life to the fullest and being a little selfish, will actually be more beneficial to your family than taking care of everyone and anticipating their every need. Children need to learn about sacrifice, hard work, dedication and disappointment. How you teach them those valuable lessons if you take care of everything for them? I started this blog to encourage moms from everywhere to put aside fear and excuses and find themselves again. Take a risk, say “what the heck”, start your journey, be a little selfish and enjoy the outcome.
