I absolutely love my life. However I have to admit that part of the reason why my life has turned out the way it has is because I would not settle for less. I remember growing up and realizing that I did not want to live a life filled with turmoil and conflict. Growing up my parents always fought and my dad was always struggling with finances. I made a decision at an early age that when I did get married and have kids that I wanted to make sure that my home was fun and peaceful. Of course every family has its conflicts but I must say that our home is fun and peaceful. My husband is absolutely amazing and he treats me like a Queen. Along the way I did make a lot of mistakes and I have struggled and financially at times but I am never situation where my family had to live in a hotel because of my bad decisions. Even with some of the challenges that we have went through my husband and I have always tried to raise our kids in a certain standard of living that suits us. That is not because we’re better than someone else it’s because we would not settle for less. Good enough is not good enough for me. I want amazing. I want great. I want fabulous. And because I want my life to look that way and feel that way I am willing to do what it takes to make it happen. Sometimes that means turning off the TV. Sometimes that means listening to hours and hours of content that would help me keep my mind in a peak state. Sometimes that means letting go of toxic relationships. And sometimes that means stopping taking a minute and smelling the roses and enjoying the life that God has blessed us with. Sometimes that means sitting still and doing nothing. Whatever it is I need to do I am willing to do so that I do not have to settle for less. If you have dreams and you have goals please pursue those dreams and goals passionately and do not settle for less.
