After having my daughter I went out looking for a job and quickly realized that finding a good job, with good pay and benefits would be difficult. Actually, the real lesson I learned was that the money I would be making from a job would barely even cover the costs of childcare. I was lucky to have a husband who although wasn't making much was completely ok with me staying home and raising our daughter. We didn't have much and I'm very thankful that although he had to put in the long hours at work that he made it possible for me to be a full-time stay at home mom. In my heart, nothing made me happier than that. I never felt like less because I didn't have a 9-5 job but part of me disliked the fact that I knew if I HAD to get a job, I wouldn't be qualified enough. I didn't graduate college, didn't have a degree and since living in a world that easily determines if we are qualified to do something simply by having a piece of paper it was up to me to figure out something.
I didn't have that piece of paper so I grabbed a blank piece and wrote down what I wanted to do with my life instead.
I always dreamt of becoming a photographer, and luckily a photography career doesn't necessarily need a degree. Of course, there are colleges that offer photography degrees but I knew that if I really wanted to make it happen I could teach myself, I could learn online, I could build something for myself that didn't require anyone else's approval but mine. The best part about it was that I didn't have to give up something that meant so much to me, being a stay at home mom.
I got to work, learned as much as I could. I wasn't any good, actually I was pretty terrible when I started. Regardless of how bad I was when I started, I stuck with it and it has lead me to today. I am now a proud business owner. I work for myself. I have a job I love. I have 100% personal and financial freedom to do what's right for me and my family and it's helped me create a life that makes me happy and proud.
If there is something you love to do, don't let anything stop you in pursuing it. Go after it. If you have it in your heart then I have no doubt that you can make it happen. All too often we let our own self-made limitations and doubts rule in the pursuit of what makes us truly happy.
Go after those dreams of yours and make them happen.
