Ramblings Of A SAHM

New Kid On The Block

kidsGive Yourself Permission To Be NEW!

Not Going To Lie…I Woke Up This Morning Feeling Pretty Raw & Vulnerable…

You Know One Of Those…”What The BLEEP Did You Just Do!?” Moments…

I Knew These Emotions Would Come…But I Wasn’t Prepared For How Hard They Would Hit.

I May Have Cuddled Up With My 4 Year Old…Cried…& Watched Disney Shorts..

“Sometimes It’s Through Our Tears That We Find A Better Way.” -The Ballad Of Nessie

You See…The Safety Net Is Gone..And I Am Now In Uncharted Territory. Which Is Completely Scary And Exciting All At The Same Time.

I Feel Like A Baby Learning To Walk For The First Time…

I Know What I Want To Do…I Even Think I Know How To Do It…But It’s Still So Fresh & New…

Falling Is Inevitable…And I’m Willing To Get Back Up As Many Times As I Need To…

But That Doesn’t Make It Any Less Scary…Especially When Everyone Is Watching…

You See Whenever You Learn Something New…You Look Like An Amateur…Because Well…You ARE!

And For The Girl Who Practiced Dance, Dance Revolution In Her Basement For HOURS Before Playing With Her Friends…

For Fear Of Making A Fool Of Herself…And Not Being A Master At It…

This Is A Pretty Big Step.

In My Short Time (Well Maybe Not So Short) Time On This Earth I’ve Learned…

It’s OK To Be An Amateur…It’s OK Not To Be An Instant Expert. It’s OK To Not Have All The Answers…

Because That’s What Makes Us Human!

What’s Not OK…Is Avoiding Trying Something For Fear Of Failure..Fear Of The Unknown…And Fear Of Leaving Your Comfort Zone.

Stifling Yourself From Learning To Crawl, To Learning To Walk, & Eventually Run…Because You Are Content In One Place…Isn’t Doing Any Good. Seriously. You Are Capable Of So Much More!

But You Have To Be Willing To Give Yourself Permission To Be NEW! Give Yourself A Little Grace.

“What If I Fall? Oh My Darling, But What If You Fly?”

Don’t You Think You Owe Yourself The Chance To Explore New Opportunities? The Chance To Really Spread Your Wings And See Just How Far You Can Fly?

You’ve Got To Be A Beginner Before You Can Be Anything Else.
