The past few weeks I’ve been working full time as an IT director. This work has taken a significant amount of time away from my blogging. This work has also taken a significant time away from my kids. As I started thinking about this tonight I started to realize why I have my blog and why it’s so important that I keep my dream alive.
Here lately all of the motivational sales articles and audiobooks I’ve been reading have a big focus on “finding your why”. Start With Why is one of the first audiobooks I listened to last year. I don’t think I was ready to figure out my “why” for my blog when I listened to that book. I struggled with coming up with a reason for my blog so I stopped writing for a while.
This spring and summer I started writing again and really having fun with it. This summer I finally figured out my “why” for my blog. Working full time has just reinforced this “why” and made it that much more important to me.
So what is my why? My why, as obvious as it may be, is my kids. My kids are my world and I cherish every moment I can spend playing with them. My dream job would be a job where I could get paid to play with my kids all day. My ultimate goal is to have my blog be that dream job. I want to be able to take them places they love to go and write about it. Explore new exciting places and write about it. I want to share our stories with my readers, the good and the bad. And to go a step further I want to give other moms the chance to do the same thing! How much fun would it be to have a team of moms with different opinions, hobbies and personalities to write with me and share in our excitement?
For right now, I’m taking things one step at a time with my “why”. I want to live a fun, healthy and active life with my family. The healthy and active part is why I am a Beachbody coach. Being a Beachbody coach allows me to take my why a step further and not only live a healthy and active lifestyle for myself, but also to inspire and help my friends, family and readers to get active and healthy. My dream with Beachbody is to build my team and start a free Fit Club where my friends, family and community can join me in working out together on the weekends. I really want to make a difference in the lives around me.
So why am I writing all of this? I’m writing all of this to give my readers a little insight to me. I want to get more personal and let everyone get to know me. I’m also writing this for accountability. Accountability is becoming a huge thing for me. If I put this out there for everyone to see, by God I’m determined I’m going to make these things happen.
I want to hear from you all now! What are your “whys”? What drives you to do what love? What are your ultimate goals? I can’t wait to hear your responses!
