Ordinary or extraordinary?
Have you ever struggled with what you are meant for? Have you ever felt you are meant for greater things than you are currently doing? I’m not even talking about being a wife or mom. We are called for that and I believe we do it well! We might be tired but we get the job done.
What about outside of that? Who are we outside of wife and/or mom?
Let’s try it….
It’s nice to meet you, please tell me a little about yourself.
For those of you that are wives and/or moms did you begin telling me about yourself by stating you are a wife and mom? Me too! I define myself by what my life is right now. I love my life and wouldn’t change my husband or kids one bit!
I am still however stumped by the next part of that description. What is the second part? Who else am I?
It’s not an identity crisis necessarily but as life continues I continue to wonder who I really am. I believe I’m meant for greatness but what is that?!? Without a doubt I want to be a daughter, wife and mother. I want that to be first and foremost but I have this nagging, gut feeling, intuition that I am meant for more.
I want to be an example to my kids. Years from now I want them to be proud that I’m their mom. I want them to know they can follow their dreams because they saw me follow mine.
It feels like I’ve been drifting down the stream of life the past several years rather than walking a defined path. I’m letting life carry me instead of making it what I want it to be. That changes today!!
Today I start living with purpose. Today I am renewed. Today I start doing what I want with my life. Today I follow my dreams. Today I am extraordinary.
