I’m going to let you in on a little secret. My dreams are really big and that scares me. … I have always wanted my business to grow faster than it is. But I also have a HUGE fear of my business running me. I don’t want to be so busy running my business that I forget to live my life and focus on what’s most important. … But as I’ve grown in my business and in my life, as my role as a wife and mother, I’ve learned that I couldn’t ever do that. Being a wife and a mother are the most important roles in my life and everything I do is for and because of my husband and my girls. But I am also ready to let go of the fear of failing and jump all in!
So, I am going to share a huge goal and dream that I have. A lot of you probably know that it’s always been a dream of mine to own a wedding venue (but that’s not the huge dream and goal I’m talking about .. well, it kind of is). And honestly, I didn’t know if that would ever be a reality. For a long time, it was just a thought in my head. But over the last couple years, I’ve realized that I really want it. And I’m to the point now that it’s not about if it will happen but when and how. I know exactly what type of venue I want, I can see it in my head and I can see the property surrounding it and how beautiful it will be. … But I also know that it’s not just going to happen. In the 7 years that I’ve had my business I have loved it! But it has also been really hard. Everything is my decision and if I fail, it’s all on me. And that feeling has held me back from my dreams…for far too long. When things get hard and I feel like I can’t do it, I just pull away and find something else to do that’s easier. … But the truth is… that nothing else is as fulfilling.
I’ve always heard that if you find something you love to do, you will never work a day in your life. .. And that really resonates with me. Now, I don’t think that means that your passion and dreams are always easy, but they’re always worth it. And if you live your life feeling fulfilled in what you do, you have more capacity to love and give and to really be there for others along the way. And that’s what I want. I want to wake up everyday and feel so fulfilled that I can give and love unconditionally and bless others lives. … So, here’s my big goal … Ah! My goal is to make a 6-figure income by the end of 2025. And it’s NOT so I can have bragging rights or be rich or spend money on frivolous things. … It’s so I can reach my DREAMS! It’s so I can have a place where people can come to gather, to feel connected, to feel love and to witness love. A place where I can serve and bless peoples lives. It’s so I can have a place that only I dreamed of where I and spend more time with my husband and girls and so we can show our girls what hard work looks like and what it means to have a passion. What it means to be surrounded by love and what ‘love will overcome’ means in every aspect of their lives.
I know it will happen. And I’m ready now then ever to make that leap. To have the faith to stop being distracted and to push through even when it’s hard. Because I know it’ll be worth it!
