Sometimes, whether by choice or not, burning the old down in order for something new to be born, is necessary.
Even though not much has changed in my circumstances, a new spirit and a new perspective has been born.
To quickly recap, I have been on a journey for the last eight years to find purpose and life in the everyday monotony of raising little kids. A job that I prayed for desperately, but had no idea that I wouldn’t be very good at, or mentally prepared for the roller coaster of.
No one spoke up about the loneliness, the post partum depression, the strain on your marriage, or just the general BOREDOM of being stuck in the little years.
But here I am, eight years in, three kids later, finally getting to the point of thriving.
Finally starting to see the light of purpose and worth that I have so desperately been seeking.
As someone who would have categorized herself as quite competent and confident prior to taking on motherhood, these dark days of the little years have been rough, and come at a total shock.
So many tears. So many timeouts. And I’m just talking about me!
But here I am, still standing.
And ready to speak out about my journey in a way that hopefully helps others around me, in bringing freedom and purpose to your motherhood journey as you tackle raising the next generation too.
I am not a parenting expert. I am not a professional interior designer. Nor am I a highly sought-after stylist. I AM however a mom who has poured herself into each of these trades and has learned a ton along the way. It’s my turn to spur you on, and create a community for us together. We’re going to talk Design (on the home front), Style (goodbye mom slob kebob’s), and Purpose (#okayestmomever).
I don’t have a magic formula, nor would I even consider myself an expert. I am here to lower our cultural standards, and raise our worthiness standards. We are not here to achieve World’s Greatest Mom status. We’re going to attempt to get it at just an OKAY level, and we’re going to find joy and worth in that. We’re going to let go of the fast-paced standard of the world telling you that you need to have four thousand side hustles, and have your kids in 3,000 activities while you also fight for women’s rights as a CEO in the workplace.
Wherever that is.
Find your lane. Stay there, and then start to thrive.
Sometimes it’s going to require a circumstance change.
Or sometimes, like in my case, it’s just going to be a mere perspective shift.
We got this ladies. Let’s let go of “GREAT”, and strive for OKAY. I have a hunch that maybe, just maybe, a wave of greatness will wash over a generation as we release ourselves from the pressures and voices saying that we aren’t doing enough, or aren’t enough.
So excited to be here and doing this with you!
