The Mother Lode!
Dear Mother of Dreams,
I have heard over and over that if you aren’t making money, you don’t have a business, you have a hobby. Those words would make me wince. I was creating a business!!!! For years, I was bound to be a stay-at-home mom with a purpose. I searched for the perfect way to share my gifts to make money. So, I began living as someone who was sharing her gifts. Soon, I wrote a book that I loved creating, even designing the cover, and got an endorsement from Cheryl Richardson. I met Dr. Wayne Dyer on Maui at his home and handed him a copy of my book, and today I am so glad I did that before he passed. I took classes and learned how to build my own website…all the while, feeling something was missing.
Well, I finally got it. I realized last night, as I sat with planner in hand, reflecting and looking back over the money that was flowing into my life, the beautiful people I was meeting, the ones I’ve released, the ideas that have come to mind, I AM DOING WHAT I LOVE! That is it! Each day, I begin as mother and wife to my wonderful family. I do the things I love. When I am in love with life, life loves me back. I am making money in amazing ways, even if it doesn’t all come from clients. I am writing and posting and sharing even if I don’t have a huge community.
I realized that all I have ever really wanted was to have a family, to be a mother, and to love them and my life! That is my greatest dream come true. I want to live a Shining Life! So, what was missing? Why did I need to pursue a business? For me, it has not been about the business. It is the things that I feel when I do the things I would do for a business…I write from my heart. I create, design, and make a beautiful space for others to visit. I connect with others in a heart-centered way. I could do these things in many other ways, but for a long time I thought I had to be doing something more if I was ‘working from home’. And I just got it. I am doing it! I am working from home, homeschooling one of my three children, driving them to school, work, activities. Making meals. Cleaning and decorating…being an encourager. I am doing exactly what I love! The only thing that was missing was that I needed to give myself permission to say, right now, this is what I want to do, and It’s ENOUGH!
principal and rich source of something, metaphorically refers to the origin of something valuable or in great abundance.
Yes, I DO HAVE A HOBBY (and an amazing and supportive Hubby)! I write when I want to. I create when I want to. I travel when I want to. I play and interact when I want to…and it’s all more than okay! Once I said that to myself last night, I realized that I am a powerful creator and manifestor. I do all the same things in both my home and in my BUSINESS which is the business of family and motherhood. So much has flowed into my life just as I have wanted and needed it to do simply because I do what I love. I know that as I relax, the next natural unfolding will appear as an invitation. As I hold only one real vision of being happy and joyful, everything will take shape.
~Make it MAGICAL~
If you are a mother who works and plays at home, wonderful!!! And if you are mother who works outside of the home, wonderful!!! Being a mother is an exciting opportunity to experience relationship, to interact with life, and to be a Creative Dream Companion™ to your family. No matter what we do, it is so much more important how we feel about what we’re doing. Today, I want to encourage you to discover the simple joys…the beauty, love, and magic in your life. As you live it and love it, your children will learn to discover their own MAGICAL Life!~
Lots of Momma Love,
I wrote this message for a large group in May and I am sharing here since it touched many Creative Dream Moms:

“This is so powerful!” ~Marissa N.
“I needed this. This is exactly where I am …. rehashing the need to make my passion into a business, allowing myself to be exactly where I am, effete I WANT to be and fully claiming that, without putting expectations on it to be MORE. Thank you for sharing your amazing journey!” -Star S.
