Yesterday it hit me pretty hard what my work life looks like. When people ask what I do my first answer is, "I'm a stay-at-home mom." I love that title. We sacrificed a lot for me to have that title. If you look at the majority of my day, I am a stay-at-home mom.
Except right now. I'm a blogger.
20 minutes later, during nap time, I'll be an Arbonne consultant.
An hour or so later, depending on nap time, I'll be a carpooling mama.
Then I'll be a homework helping, dinner cooking, cleaning up, tuck the kids in bed kind of mama.
But two nights a week, I do go out. I LOVE going out. I go out and meet new people. I plant seeds of how blessed we have been. I plant seeds of how my church and relationship with Jesus has changed my life. I also plant seeds of belief into people. Belief that they can live a better life physically and financially.
That's the work life that hit me pretty hard yesterday. As I left my house, I was thankful for the people who planted belief into me. It's almost my year anniversary with Arbonne and I'm doing the same thing I did 11 months ago when I began except my check continues to increase. I'm still investing 10-12 hours a week of my time, here and there, around my kids and husband's needs and increasing my pay. Why? Because I focus solely on serving others, listening to their dreams and visions, and helping them get there.
So, yes, I'm a stay at home mom to my crazy kids and nephews, but I also own my own business. A business that has almost replaced my old teacher's salary within a year, and will continue to go up. Except I'm not putting in 50-60 hours a week teaching. That's where I'm thankful. My day looks different than the average worker, but it looks so good to me. True thankfulness for opportunities I never wanted to say yes to, but so glad I did.
And just because 'Mom' is the best job I've ever had, I need to show you the ones that steal my heart!
