I am in charge of another life, and that’s a very powerful thing. So powerful that it has brought my confidence level to new heights. The confidence isn’t just there whenever I’m at the bus stop, park, or activities with my son – it has become a part of me and carries through to all areas of my life.
I love my sense of style.
My bachelor degree is in Fashion Marketing, so fashion has always been a huge part of my life. But after becoming a mom, I know my body better than ever and can spot something that will look amazing or horrible on me from a mile away. Because I know my body so well and what looks right and what doesn’t, my style reflects that and thrives more and more every day.
I love my budgeting skills.
Before being a mom, I never needed to factor in soccer registration fees, budget for “kid foods” when grocery shopping, or remember that we had to purchase an entirely new school uniform each August. While I’ve always been good with money, being a mom has made the best budgetter (is that a word?) imaginable – and I love it!
I love my ability to focus on what is really important.
Gone are the days of spreading myself thin and trying to get involved just a little bit in everything. Not anymore! I know when to say “no.” I know when things are of the highest priority. And I know what is most important in life at all times and what I need to focus on.
