What Inspires Me Wednesday: The Feeling of Achievement

When people first ask me what inspires me, I’m quick to say “my three guys”.  This would be my husband and two step-sons. And to that point, they do inspire me to be a better person.  But, I’ll be honest to admit that I’m not driven by one specific thing.

Family

Yes, my family does drive me.  I want to always make my husband proud of me, in everything I do!  I want my boys to look up to me as someone who has determination, work ethic, and drive.  Whether it’s doing something that is more of a hobby (teaching workout classes) or blogging to working my full-time job, I want them to see someone who never gives up, gives 110% to be the best that they can be!  

The Challenge of Something New

It took me awhile into my adulthood to figure out that I get bored easily in a job.  If I’m not in a place where every day is different and I’m not challenged on a routine basis, I get bored.  I want to always continue to grow my mind and skill set.

Recognition

Yes, money is nice, but I’ll admit that I prefer to be recognized by a “good job” or “job well done” over anything else.  I think people in general want to be appreciated and recognized over anything else. As a person who has their hand in several different businesses and hobbies, that recognition can vary.  Sometimes it’s someone acknowledging me as an expert. Other times, it’s a simple “thank you for your help/efforts’.

Making A Difference

I’m not a doctor, therapist, or anything who is making a difference in the world, but I want to know that I made a difference somehow.  It might be in my full-time job by just being good at my job. It might be in the way I conduct myself, hoping to inspire someone else. Making a difference can also circle back to the example I want to set for my boys.  I hope that me being in their lives makes a difference in theirs.

Everyone has something different than inspires them.

Ok, maybe that is an exaggeration. It doesn't feel far off, though!

We had a pretty exciting snow day at our house! This morning when checking my email I got a message that my book was live and on sale on Amazon! I had thought this was going to happen on Thursday so needless to say I was super excited to find out that it had happened earlier than anticipated. If you would like to order you can find it on Amazon by clicking on the link below. If you do order we would love to have you leave a review on Amazon after you read it!

On to the rest of our snow day...

Grace's breeding heifer for this year.

This morning we made sure all of the animals were tucked in and happy.

I love this pig! What do you think she is thinking? Any caption ideas?

The girls made several batches of slime, made their own lunch in the air fryer (they were hungry and I was working on scheduling author visits), and played with Grace's new cat. Thank you, air fryer, for making lunch easy.

This evening we ventured back out to check on everyone again.

Baby Mouse is doing great!

My chore helper did a lot more playing than helping, but she is pretty cute so I let her get by with it. 😉

What did you do on your snow day? Be honest, do you let your kids make slime? We had a ban for a long time, but now they are back to doing it again. How much snow did you get at your house?
