I am late for getting ready for work… Before the last couple of months I don’t even remember the last time those words came out of my mouth or anything like that. Now, after being a stay at home mom full-time for over 5 1/2 years, not only did I start my own cup, T-shirt, bags, glass, etc design production business, but
Okay, so I’m back home; and it’s now 10:08pm. Boy what a night I had. Tonight I cleaned at one of my all star clients house … and within the first 10 minutes of being there…. I carelessly sliced my pointer finger DEEP with a pizza cutter🤣🤦🏼♀️ ( yes the finger that JUST healed from paronychia)
I thought said pizza cutter was something more of a “dough” tool, rather than a butcher knife 😂🤣
I dropped every broom and vacuum every time I put them down, AND I dropped my spray down the stairs 🤣😂🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️.
Ahhhh soo here we are, months into my new hustle. Feeling pretty good about it. I’ve got some amazing clients who, without them, I wouldn’t still have the motivation or ambition to be doing this. They’ve been, nothing short of absolutely frikkin AMAZING!! They got me to this point, with their positive words, guidance, and especially their posts raving about me and the fact they have a housekeeper – period!!
It’s been good for me. Me as a person. I’m networking. I’m making friends. I’ve got my own clientele ( solely built on marketing and word of mouth – the BEST marketing strategy by far ). I’m growing as a woman, an becoming more independent.
Ahhh networking. Not too long ago, that was an ancient , lost on me, word. It’d just been far too long for me. I’d been cooped up. Speaking of coops, I also have my own mini farm now!! I’ve got 3 beautiful chickens & 4 GORGEOUS ducks!! That’s a story for another post.
Being a stay at home mom (SAHM), is my life. It was my only life for years. I was just riding the currents of life, going with the flow – but today, I go against the flow, with the flow, and all around the flow!! I AM the flow, I AM the currents, I AM a functioning, participant in society. Having a career , being a SAHM, being a wife, a girlfriend. A mother, a daughter, a sister, a neighbor, a friend – it’s all a part of life, you’ve just got to live it! Feel good about it. Find your niche.
Hell cleaning has never been a thing I loved to do. It still is not a thing I LOVE to do. I pushed myself to find something I could possibly be GREAT at, and be paid for too, and it just so happened to be cleaning.
Today, I live my life, and participate in it. Yes there are days when I don’t want to get out of bed, sometimes I stay in my room. In the house all day. For the most part, I have decided and tried to – live my life for the people I’ve lost. I’ll live it because they no longer can. I’ll live it and speak of them and think of them every single solitary day, because they cannot, and I loved them SO much.
Until next time,
Yours truly –
