What an amazing night last night to see a woman become the nominee for the President of the United States. Politics aside, that fact alone is very heartening to see that our country is progressing to make dreams become reality.
I’m the mom of three amazing kids (1 boy and 2 girls). Today, I’m also celebrating my birthday. When I look back at my more recent years, I feel that I’ve always had a ceiling in my journey. It’s not a ceiling put there by society, but by myself. I had a ceiling called fear. Fear of how people might think of me and my work, fear of failure, fear of falling behind, fear of not being good enough. FEAR. How can I teach my kids to not be fearful and grow to be confident adults if I can’t get there myself? So as I age another year, I know that a mind shift is a must if I’m to begin and succeed this next year of my life. As Hillary Clinton said last night
When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.
Well, I want to reach the sky, and I want to set an example for my kids so that they can reach beyond to the stars. I can’t let another year of fear overtake me. So I’m taking a first step in cracking my own ceiling and posting this first entry into a blog that I’ve been putting off for far too long because of fear. I invite you to join me on my journey into this new mind shift and hope that I will inspire you to do something positive in your life as well.
