Its July 31,2015 and its such a significant day. Its the last day of the month of Completion… Let me say that again, its the Last Day of the month of Completion!
I am true numbers girl! Nope I’m not into math or finance, but I am into numbers, numerology to be exact. I love the meaning behind numbers and what they symbolize. 7 is the number of Completion and its also the number of “God”, “God rested on the 7th day”, I’m sure you know right.
Well this is no different because completion to me is the end of something for another to begin, hence next month is August and 8 is the number of New Beginnings, so you KNOW I’m excited! This particular blog though, I want to encourage my Fellow Mommies and Momprenuers!
Yes this one is for you Mommies!!!
I have been on this entreprenuerial journey for quite some time now (11 years to be exact). I have been studying , learning, starting, stopping, growing, shedding, you know how it goes. This year however has been the turning point of my journey. My daughter is 3 years old now about to be 4 (I still can’t believe it myself) and she is the light of my life. I mean she’s like a mini version of me. So having the desire to want to pursue a career in writing and entrepreneurship is Scary as Hell! I mean I had to really Pray and ask God several times ” are you sure about this because you know We have to take care of Tory”, and you know what God said “I know, and I told You I will Supply All Your Need, What do you have in your hands?”. Now at first I was confused like , “What do I have in my hands”? But as I thought about it I understood something so amazing. God asked Moses that same question. He asked him what he had in his hands as soon as Moses came up with reason Why he Couldn’t do what God told him to do! (Exodus 4:1-17)
Whoa! Have you ever felt like Moses?? Telling God what you Can’t do when clearly He said you Can?
We as mommies and if you are an independent mommy like me, you think about how you will feed your child, or children, the roof you need to keep over their head and the lights to stay on, right ? You run to a job because you Know for sure that will guarantee security, but the misconception is God is your security not the job, not that time clock you punch everyday. Now hear me, I’m not saying quit, but if God is saying to, Do It because He wants to show you how He can provide. When I started to hear God say Pursue what I put in you, I felt: crazy, worried, confused , anxious but I felt like if I didn’t do it, something major would happen and I would forever be stuck! I didn’t want that. For so long I wanted to write, speak and teach. That is what I love, I love to inspire people with my words. I just never knew how I would do it.
In 2014, I came out of hiding and wrote my first book. At the beginning of 2015 my 9-5 ended and God said its time to Pursue what I put in you. Now I didn’t have a job or any steady income and when I went to apply for jobs, NOTHING came through for me, I mean NOTHING. I then heard God say, “What have I put in your hands”? I am writer by nature, writing is like air, I breath it, when I want to express myself I write it out first. I LOVE to teach and inspire people. I love to see people’s lives transformed by something I taught them. So I began to ask God, okay so what do I do with that and how can I get income in doing this. He began to show me how to use the gifts talents and abilities He’s placed in me to allow for those things to give me the things I need. Is it easy? NO its not but I believe that I have something in me that people need and I am determined to see that they get it.
Is this you? Are you a Newbie Momprenuer struggling to figure out how to do what is In you to do? If it is I have learned 5 key things to help you stay the course live out your dreams WITH your babies so that you will stay motivated, inspired and Always in Pursuit:
1. Know what’s in your hands: Your Gifts, Your Talents and your Abilities are what will give you the know, and asking God what to do with them will give you the Know How!
2. Trust what you’ve been given: You will face times of disbelief, sometimes I do too but when those moments come, remind yourself that these are gifts, you were born with them so that means its apart of who you are!
3. Believe what God (or whatever your higher self if, mine is Jesus 🙂 has said about you: This one is key! If you don’t believe it, you will Never be able to achieve or receive what will be given. It has to come with belief and Faith!
4. Faith MUST be your anchor. This walk ISNT easy! You have to have Faith in order to see what you believe become a reality. You will want to give up and walk away because you don’t see it, but that is when your faith is being tested and tried and THAT is when you go harder! Never Give Up!
5. GrOw Through the Process! A lot of people tend to abandon the process, I’ve been there. Growth isn’t easy but necessary. The process prunes what we need out of us, builds strong roots and allows for all the goodness to come forward. GrOw thROUGH! 🙂
Mommies, we Got this! Our babies are watching us and waiting for us to show up! They are our first clients and customers to see if we will deliver! We can’t dissapoint them. Whenever you think of quitting, letting go of the dream, look at their faces and know that if not for you, they alone are worth the fight!
I Love You Mommies and Remember Always, Be You, Stay True and Pursue!
