Why I Hustle…

I’ve been stressing over my outfit for a week now, ever since that phone call came that I got the interview. A new start–an opportunity for movement, more stability, more money for our family. And, for the first time in my life, I’m nervous for an interview.

You know, before I met your dad and you three were born, I was pretty fearless. Some might say I was just overly confident. But, I never really stressed over my career or my finances. God always seemed to cover what I couldn’t. It’s only now that my heart races when I think of our bank accounts and daycare costs. It’s only because of our family that I push and hustle to make every dollar I can.

I know your dad agrees. He works even more than I do! But, the purpose is the same: it’s all for you.

…to provide for you.

…to inspire you to strive for great things.

…to move us forward–to move myself forward, so that I’m a full, in-color version of myself instead of an empty shell.

…to make this world a better place for you.

…to live the cycle of struggle, success, and failure so that I can help you through those too.

That’s what finally centered me this morning, as I pulled out of the parking lot to head to my interview. I saw three precious car seats, reminding me of the incredible blessing you are. Why wouldn’t I bust my tail to do something for you? I’d do anything for you. This one is easy 🙂

So…my smile is on. My mind is centered. My nerves are calmed. And, I’m off to push forward—siempre adelante—just for you!

 

Love,

Mom
