Time: sometime in the afternoon
Mood: Dayum good….
It’s sometime in the middle of the day and I’m working from home…..preparing dinner for the man children.
I’m happy…no let me tell it right…I’m SUPER HAPPY!!
At this time a couple years ago, I was sitting in an office….someone else’s office….just wishing I could be home and have dinner on the table at a reasonable time for my kids.
We all know the hustle. Get up, get kids ready for school, drop off, go to work and dream of quitting your boss while waiting for 5 p.m. and Friday, get off work, pick kids up, get home (by 7pm if we’re lucky), cook dinner while rushing through a “how was your day talk with the family” and checking kid homework, give the kids a bath, get ready for the next day then lights out.
SHEESH! I got exhausted just by reading that.
Who likes to eat dinner at damn near midnight? Certainly not me…
It was my goal to put myself in a position to be home when my kids got off school and put dinner on the table at a reasonable time…
I drop my kids off to school and come home to work. Dinner is always on the table at a decent hour and I don’t have to rush time with the kids.
Oh how they love me.
I can do this because I get money…..
I can do this because I set a goal and made it happen.
I can do this because I told fear to kiss my ass.
I can do this because I FOUND a way to make it happen.
Listen guys, you can be scared to live your dreams if you want but you won’t get nothin’ from it but just that….A DREAM. I decided to turn my dreams into executed plans and now they are pleasant realities.
If you love yourself
If you love your family
You will take the leap of faith and make it happen.
Moral of the story: I think it’s self explanatory.
