“Would you rather be seuccessful at a job you love or famous for a job that you don’t really enjoy?”
I would rather want to be successful at a job that I love because I would want to be able to walk into work with a smile on my face because I know that I’ve started from the bottom of the job totem pole and worked my way up the ladder. I wouldn’t want to be famous for a job I didn’t enjoy because what’s the point in going to a job that I dread waking up for in the morning?
When I was little, I wanted to be the next Britney Spears. I loved singing, and dancing, and I still do, but the harsh reality is I can’t be what I wanted to be as a child because I’m an adult now. I’m doing adult things, and living in that fantasy just isn’t for me anymore.
Being successful is one thing that I strive to be. Whether it be successful at being a housewife, or a stay at home mom, whatever. If I can make my husband and daughter smile at the end of the day because I’ve done things that I find successful at the end of the day, that’s all that matters to me.
I’ve been told since my teen years that I wasn’t going to be successful if I didn’t do anything, if I didn’t get a job, or go to college, or whatever, but to me, I have been successful. I’m a wife, I’m about to be a mom, I keep my home clean, I put a warm meal in my husbands stomach. To me, that’s so much more successful than going to college, or getting a job that I really didn’t want. I’d rather be a couch potato and do things around the house and check them off my to-do list, and find that successful than the points made the sentence before this one.
Being successful and doing successful things are what YOU think they are, not what everyone else says they are. That’s what it is to me. Having anxiety, and being pregnant, for me just getting up out of bed is successful. Tomorrow morning, I plan on making breakfast for my husband and I, and I’m going to find that successful, even though I do it basically every morning because it’s something that I enjoy.
My job title at the moment is wife, and soon to be mommy. Doing things for my husband and making sure that I’m eating so my daughter can continue to develop properly are the two most successful things that I enjoy doing. God has a plan for my life, and I do believe this is part of that plan.
I’m going to go ahead and stop the post here for now, or else you’d be here reading a book because I have so much to say about this subject.
Be sure to look out for my next post, coming at you tomorrow morning or evening.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
