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.

When I dreamed of some day having babies of my own I always "assumed" I would have boys. Don't ask me why. I truly have no idea. I just always assumed that was how my life would be. As life would have it, it has been the complete opposite. I have two beautiful, vibrant daughters that make life an adventure each and EVERY single day.

Literally, every single day has some kind of an adventure! Making slime, putting on make up, playing in the cattle yard, dressing cats up as babies, building forts, baking cupcakes, screaming bloody murder at each other, trying on clothes, sewing, playing an ice hockey game with odd sticks, screaming a little more, and making videos. Seriously, the list could go on and on.

If I am completely, wholeheartedly honest. They inspire me to be a better human being each and every day! One of them is tender hearted, worries about how others feel, doesn't want others to be left out and is considerate of every person she comes in contact with. The other is literally going mach 10 from the time her feet hit the floor, things roll off of her back like she wears a turtle shell of armor, and while she is kind and has friends she would much rather have time to explore the great outdoors by herself or with a small number of people.

They both teach me so much about how to "mother" each of them differently, but also inspire me to see the world the way they do. Seeing the world through their young eyes is amazing if you really take the time to "see" it.

So happy that God had a different plan and made me a "Girl" mom. 🙂
