Be THAT Girl.

It's funny how you pray and pray for something so specific, then when it is right in front of your face, all you can think to do is run.

You second guess yourself immediately.

You wonder if this really is what you wanted after all.

Anxiety settles in despite all the of the lights flashing GREEN in your face.

Confidence waxes and wanes and suddenly, you are convinced you aren't so good at what you thought you were.

That's me, y'all.

For about two years, I prayed and hoped for something I could do on my own while still being a stay-at-home mom. I didn't care whether it was an income maker or just pursuing a talent with success, but I knew I needed more.

The big question was WHAT IN THE WORLD is the "MORE" that I needed? At one time, it was to enroll in theology courses. Another time, it was looking into freelancing {how daunting!}, then it was filling my time with non-profits, or maybe becoming a yoga instructor.

I just wanted to feel more balance than the life a stay at home mom was giving...yet I did not want to give up being the primary caretaker and homemaker of our home.

Fast-forward two years, many frustrated nights searching the internet for the best idea ever, and here I sit.

I have completely accidentally earned the title of

F R E E L A N C E W R I T E R

overnight.

Now I am at a crossroad to decide whether to let this momentum die or keep working hard to pursue more and more.

After all my sleepless nights, how can I even be wondering this?

OF COURSE YOU GO FOR MORE.

It's stressful.
It's exhilarating.
It's confusing.

But it's my passion.
It's what I love.

So maybe I will regret this someday, but today, I am going to be the girl who goes for it.

Who are you going to be?
