Something triggered within me this week. (took long enough 😉 )
I’m a stay at home mom by choice, not because I need to.
Spending my days with this little person is how I choose to raise Lily.
The hardest part of being a stay at home mom for me up until now is not getting a pay check and not having the financial freedom I have had since I started working at the age of 15.
For the past year I have really struggled with it, often causing huge waves of depression.
Depressed because I couldn’t go out and buy those awesome boots I liked.
Depressed because I couldn’t go out to dinner or drinks with friends like I used to.
Depressed because I am not making money…
Well, this week, it was like gray skies lifted and a beautiful blue sky finally showed itself.
I got it! (finally!)
No pair of boots, earrings, sweaters, drinks, or dinners could ever (ever, ever, ever) compare to the time Lily and I spend together.
I have the opportunity to show Lily EVERYTHING I like!!
Friends, trees, flowers, coloring, painting, art, the beach, the park, foods, whatever.
Lately she is so much fun! She is the best little person I know.
We are building a friendship and a bond that is incomparable to anything else.
So, when I walk down the street and cross that fierce chick wearing the latest clothes, I will just look down at the blue eyed smiling face next to me, smile and feel blessed. 🙂
Happy friday everyone. Enjoy your weekend!! xoxo
