I recently made some BIG decisions in my life.
For those of you who don’t know, I recently decided to leave behind a website that I created from scratch, and built up to a steady income, with thousands of followers.
“Why” is a question that many are asking, so here goes…
How One Morning Changed My Life
I’ve made it a habit in my life to prioritize “quiet time” in the morning. Since I know Maddie has 2 settings (running loudly, and unconscious!), I know this will never happen when she is awake. So I get up at 4:30am, every day, and sit.
I make it a point to sit quietly for at least 30 minutes, I don’t check my emails, most of the time I don’t even turn on the lights. I gladly sit in the dark, and have a cup of tea, just me and my thoughts.
Well, this week was a bit of an eye opener, and clearly a game changer!
I was having my quiet time, thinking about my goals, where I saw myself 3 months, 6 months, a year from now, and it hit me…what I was doing was not going to get me there!
It was like a slap in the face, just there in plain sight, I was on the wrong path!
And let me tell you, when you hear that little voice from within tell you something so loud you feel it…you better listen up sweetheart, cause it’s important!
I still fought it all morning, discussing this feeling I had that I needed to make a change with my hubby, and finally I came to the decision that I would create RockItLikeAMom.com, and would no longer update my other sites.
Know what’s funny?
I was so scared to make the decision, thinking of all the work I’d put in, and that it would be crazy to let it all go. But as soon as I said the decision I had made out loud, I wasn’t scared…I was relieved!
That moment right there, I knew I had made the right decision.
What this change means for me…
- Working on my own schedule (yup, it’s possible to work from home and still feel like you’re working for someone else!)
- Writing about things I am truly passionate about
- Spending more time with my family
- A chance to make an impact in people’s lives on a personal level
I’ve been through so much in the last 10 years, and have learned such a tremendous amount about life, I feel like it’s just aching to get out of me and help other Mom’s live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives…now I can do that!
I was on the wrong path, and sometimes when you realize you’ve lost your way, the best thing to do is go back where you started and pick a new route.
Welcome to my new route ladies, I’m so excited to have you on this journey with me!
