I’ve been hearing a lot lately that you should do at least one thing that scares you everyday. Being a mom of two little dare devils I have been scared everyday for the past 4 years, but it’s been scared for them. Now, it’s my turn! I’m 30 years old this year, and am really trying to figure out who I am beyond somebody’s mother! It’s a title I love and am so blessed to have, but I’m a woman, I multi task, I need more : )
I’m ready to step out of my comfort zone! Writing this blog has been the scariest thing I’ve done for ME in a long time, but now I’m getting settled into my so called blog life, and I’m ready for more. I’m like an adrenaline junkie or something : )
So, here are Five Scary Things I’m going to do in August:
1.) I am cutting my hours back at work by almost half!!!
This is scary on so many levels! We are barely making ends meet as it is, but it’s going to be a change for the better I can feel it. My kids have always been on my schedule, but now that school is in our future, I need to be on theirs. I am also really struggling to keep this house even semi clean lately, and I know it’s because my hours at work are all over the place. Some days, some nights, long shifts… too much. I feel more relaxed just thinking about it!
2.) I am going to start promoting Shaklee to strangers!
I love Shaklee’s products, and have been blabbering on about them to everyone I know who will listen! I couldn’t be happier that I became a distributor, but since I was already working 40 hours a week, and our bills were being paid, I have been purchasing more products than selling. Other than the school thing, this is the main reason I’m cutting back my hours at the Olive Garden. Nothing motivates you to take advantage of an opportunity like money… or the lack thereof : )
3.) After 6 years of avoiding being a server like the plague, I’m putting back on my white shirt and tie! Please everyone pray for patience, a section that is douchebag free, and big tips : )
4.) I am going to be the mom of a school going kid!!!!!
I know this is kid related, but I feel like this is a test to my motherhood. Did I teach him everything he needs to know to make it in preschool? Will he be a star student or will the principal and I be on a first name basis? Is he going to make a lot of friends, or will he be bullied… even worse, will he be the bully??? I know he is a good kid, but so far he hasn’t had to prove that to anyone but me. Well, and Fat Dad and the rest of our family, but they have to love him, and these people don’t! Phew… deep breaths… he’s going to do fine…
Ok, I saved the best for last…
5.) I’m hosting my first Blog Hop!!!
I am teaming up with Gwen from A Little Unhinged to co host our very first blog hop! This will be a first for both of us, but it’s always more fun to have a partner in crime : ) More details are coming soon so stay tuned… Follow me on Facebook for all the latest updates.
What scary things do you have planned??? What do you do to step outside your comfort zone??? What successes have come to you from taking a scary first step???
Oh, I almost forgot, I did something scary today, too… I am officially a twit, or whatever you call a person on twitter : ) I have had an account for a while, but other than laughing at Blake Shelton and Will Farrell’s tweets I haven’t been very active. I have been a little scared at dipping my feet in the pool that is twitter, but I jumped right in today, and so far, the water’s pretty nice! Come watch me make a twit of myself at @FIOAWGrow…
Oh and I got nominated for another blogger award!!! Thanks to Mama’s Mumbo Jumbo for nominating me for the Liebster Award! I am working on a post as we speak…
