It’s Okay to Not Know What Your Story is Yet
Someone once told me that I would never amount to anything because I didn’t know what my “calling” was when I was in my mid 20’s. But I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to not know what your story is yet.
At the time those words cut so deep. Honestly, they shouldn’t have because those words didn’t come from someone who added value to my life. This person only wanted to tear me down. I was a newly single mom of 3 young children and had been a stay-at-home mom for the last 3 or 4 years of the marriage I was in at the time.
I didn’t know what I was going to do when I left the toxic marriage I was in. Thankfully, my parents knew that me being home to raise my children was most important. While I was caring for my children, I was also keeping an eye on my elderly grandmother (Grammy). Between my kids and my grandmother, they sure kept me on my toes.
Here I am almost a decade later… doing what I want to do. Blogging. Creating Content (YouTube) and sharing my life with others. I know I’m not an “influencer” but I can still share my story and knowledge in hopes of helping someone else.
Blogging and creating content allows me to be home with my children and has the potential to earn an income. Granted, I don’t currently make but a few cents here and there with my blogs. But in time, I know I will be able to bring home some bacon to help my husband support our family.
Some days when trying to write content or record a video is just a little too overwhelming, I throw in the towel.
Stop throwing in the towel!
Remember it is okay to take a break but it is not okay to give up. You have to keep working towards your end goal. For me, that end goal is to be able to use the money I earn from blogging to get our family out of debt.
I know that there are so many people who feel like they’re not worth anything because they don’t know what they were meant to do. That’s okay. You can feel bad but only for a little while. Feeling bad won’t do you any good. You have to march to the beat of your own drum. Let others have their opinions and just keep proving them wrong. You can do it.
You don’t need anyone’s approval. You just need to love what you do. Whatever you’re passionate about, just do it!
