I hope by now, you all know the purpose of my blogs. I blog because I have much on my plate but I make every attempt (on most days) to get it done and I hope to be an inspiration to someone who may feel like they want to do more but are afraid to do so. Let me tell you, I absolutely have my days. As a matter of fact, one of my worst days are Friday. My husband works the weekend shift and he leaves Friday evenings and returns Saturday afternoon just about. After I gave birth to number nine, every Friday, like clockwork, I would get a migraine. I am not sure why, I suppose the anxiety of being home alone with nine children began to sink in. My heart would palpitate, I would hyperventilate and the migraine would be instantaneous. I remember the week after I had Cam, McRush had to go back to work and a few hours later he had to come see about me. It was one of the worst migraines I had ever had. I could not even breathe without the pain becoming immensely worse. I have gotten better since then but I still feel the anxiety but more so now from the state of affairs happening in our country. We are a black family who are God fearing, law abiding, kindhearted, don’t smoke, drink (besides an occasional glass of wine), or do drugs, respectful and all that other stuff that ultimately means nothing at the end of the day.
I cannot tell you the panic I feel if my husband does not call to let me know he made it to work, and we talk until he is in the building. Its crazy. Life is crazy. But you can do it. I have three businesses and nine children that I home school as well as find time to assist others in need. Life can get overwhelming but just breathe through it. When you look back over all of the things you worried about, you realize you never had to worry in the first place. Enjoy yourself. Pace yourself. I am rooting for you even though I do not know you.
I get emails all the time from people who want to know how I do it because they have less to manage and feel like they are going to fall apart, but that’s why I am here, to encourage you and push you. You can do this.
I am not a super woman. I am an everyday mother, wife, and businesswoman who has awful days just like you. It gets crazy, but you take a step back to assess and reboot. My purpose, hopefully, is to inspire you and push you to your greatness. That’s what my business is all about, reminding you everyday that you can, because you can.
So, if you love to hear me go on about the mayhem and foolishness in my life as well as the triumphs and set backs, then let it motivate you. If you hate it, let it motivate you. But whatever you do, be motivated to do it!
You guys keep us in your prayers and we will keep you in ours!
