I feel like I have recently just been growing and growing and learning and learning so much about who I am and who I want to be.
I've decided that I need and WANT to focus my energy and heart on being home with my girls. To take on my role with more...ferocity? I guess, let me explain...
I watched this clip: HERE.
If you can't open it, its a trailer for a documentary called: "Girl Rising" about women and girls around the world, fighting for rights, knowledge, education.
If you want to get me fired up, a sure way to do it is women's rights, especially regarding education. I watched the trailer and just cried.
And then two thoughts pressed in my head, like someone spoke them to me:
"I did not create you full of passion, and confidence, I didn't put bold and strong women in your life (my mom and step-mom, aunts and friends), to just sit around and let life happen."
So then I started thinking of all the different organizations I could join, places I could travel.....
But then again, a heard a voice in my mind:
"Why do you think I gave you three daughters?"
I watched my girls play outside and my perspective had suddenly changed. I have three brave, bold, valiant, sweet, kind, beautiful women, in my care. They are full of potential. I look in their sweet blue eyes and know they will move mountains.
I was reminded that our biggest passions, dreams and ambitions, do no require us traveling the world (someday, that may be part of my life), or starting a new career, a lot of times its a change in our focus and perspective. And remembering, and seeing what is right in front of us.
