Multi-passionate challenge: Job, Passion, 3 kids
Today I am sharing a multi-passionate challenge I have, with you. Perhaps you can relate:
I have 2 "jobs" as it is now.
One I get paid for and one I don't (yet).
I need and love them both.
And I have 3 kids.
Whom I also love :-D
The job I get paid for takes up most of my time and energy. Both physically, mentally and emotionally.
And I love working with little kids. I really do.
But my creative calling is helping other multi-passionates and this online world is my platform.
Like many other dream-of-being-solopreneurs, making the shift from a day job to creating a profitable business, is not easy.
It's really difficult, actually.
Especially if you're a mother.
That's not often said out loud in the online world. Not where I'm looking, anyway.
But the truth is, the time we have to ourselves and our passions as mothers, is not the same as someone without children.
It's just common sense, isn't it?
That's not to say we can't create authentic businesses and important, meaningful art.
Quite the opposite. And we have added depth and skills. It might just take a little longer.
So what do I do, when I want to spend time on my creative passion, but can't?
I get happy!
Instead of getting frustrated, I get a feeling of joy inside.
Because I have my passion.
I have something I really care about.
Something so important to me.
And then I make time for creating.
Just a little bit at a time.
Small kaizen steps.
I work at putting all the pieces of the how-to-create-an-authentic-business puzzle together. One by one.
And I practice trust.
Trust that I will figure it out.
Trust that it will happen for me. One day.
Because we mustn't give up.
You must not give up on that creative dream that's important to you.
We need you to be that person who lives an authentic, meaningful life.
However that looks for you.
I'm sharing my process here with you.
And it's my hope that by seeing that I'm not someone who believes in quick fixes, and that I practice imperfection, you'll be able to relax and be ok with your own process too.
I am in it for the long haul.
Are you with me?
