I wore heels and matching business suits and red lipstick. I wrote proposals and spoke at trainings. I attended meetings with my Franklin Covey planner in-hand, jotting down notes and business ideas. I ate salads with coworkers…some quirky, some candid, some kind.
If you met me today, you would see a curly-haired girl with green-ish eyes, a masters degree, and a mission to save the world.
But now I wear blue jeans and t-shirts and…red lipstick. I write the ABCs and I speak at trainings (“Don’t forget to say please. No screaming at the top of your lungs at the dinner table. Etc.“). I attend VIP picnics and go on “pretend airplane rides” with my spiral-bound notebook in-hand, jotting down notes and business ideas. I eat noodles and mandarin oranges with two little girls who challenge me and make me laugh.
This weekend, I’ll be sharing some of the qualities that I am striving toward as a mother. I often fall short of who I want to be, but I stand right back up again…and keep moving toward those ideals – allowing grace to give me the strength to try again.
YOUR TURN: What were you like pre-kids? How have you changed/stayed the same?
Stay tuned for musings, giveaways, and conversation.
As posts are published, I will add them to this post so that you can have a comprehensive spot to see my entire round-up.
