So I thought it'd be cool to start a series where I put an encouraging quote / phrase / photo / thought etc on my blog everyday (Mon-Sat). I know that I've had rough days and then seen something that's turned my day around. Everyone could use a little encouragement now and then :)
This quote touches home to both my husband and I. My husband works for himself and can have periods of down-time just like anyone working for themselves would. I tend to jump to the "Well maybe you should get a regular full-time job" conclusion quite quickly. The thing is, my husband loves what he does and he's really good at it. Being slow doesn't mean quit - it means thinking outside the box and coming up with different advertising strategies. It means finding a solution, not giving up on his dream.
For myself, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm meant to by Camdyn's mom. That is my purpose. I'm also extremely blessed in that I can work from home writing, which is something I absolutely love way more than I thought I would. I don't make very much money, but I'm hoping to grow in my field and get more job opportunities. Writing is honestly the one job I've had that I actually really like (well, I did really like being a server, but unfortunately that would require me to take Cami to daycare). I like it so much that it doesn't even seem like work. Isn't there a quote "if you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life"? That's how I feel about writing.
So again, "Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.
