I always knew I’d be a mom—never pegged myself as one who’d grow up to have 6 kids, but that pretty much sums up my job title.
And I don’t mind at all.
Don’t need no side hustle. No trajectory plan to build success. To prove success. No push to ‘have it all’. No reason to get my Masters because I’m not even utilizing my Bachelors degree. No declaration that I’m going to simplify or go ‘off the grid’. Everyday is ‘no-makeup day’. Also, I use bleach (There. I said it).
It’s ok to go after those things if you want. And they aren’t bad! But for those of you who feel you can’t “Keep up with the Joneses”?
Seriously—it’s ok to take a pass. Because then you have more time to look at your life. Your blessings. Your goals. And if that means your life is summed up with the words “Mom of 6”?
Then you’ve found your success.
