When they asked the little girl where her home was she replied - Where mother is

Living the Life You Deserve

SkateboardingI just had coffee with an amazing mom and entrepreneur today and like most of my "coffee dates", I came away more inspired and passionate about what I do, more than ever.

I love being a mom, and what set me on my journey to writing, being a mom entrepreneur and experiencing so much of life's gifts is because of my children. They drive me to be the best I can be for myself and for them.

I want to be a good example to my children. It's one of the reasons I chose to be at home with them. But I also wanted more - and that's ok.....

I wanted to show them that ANYTHING in life is possible - even for a stay at home mom.  I've written thousands of articles on parenthood; created, owned (and sold) a dynamic networking company that had hundreds of members, engaged in crazy adventures - and continue to try new things (like learning to skateboard at 40).;)

I love life. I love my children. And I love anyone telling me something is impossible - because let's face it, its only impossible if we tell ourselves it is.

We have one life. Are you living it to your fullest?  Are you doing something that your children can be proud of?  I love being here in my children's lives and sharing in all of their experiences, but I also love getting to achieve my own goals along the way. And I've managed to do it from the comfort of my own home. 

The concept of being a stay at home mom has evolved in to something that also recognizes the importance for us to engage in other things outside of motherhood. Something that is just for us.

Whether it is blogging, a side-business or even exercising each day - something that is just for you, and you alone. 

What are you doing now that nutures you?
