As of today, I have a new fire beneath me. I feel the pressure to really work hard so that I can earn an income to help support my family.
It’s crazy how much you fall in love with your kids, and you know it’s your job to protect them. That means you have to provide for them, and you can’t just let them go without the things they need.
And, as a wife, I want my husband to be able to do the things he likes to do. He should be able to blow off some steam, and he shouldn’t have to feel guilty about spending grocery money on things he likes to do.
As for me, I’d like some things, too, and I’m tired of settling.
So I’m fighting back. I’ve got a new fire beneath me, and I am ready to do some serious work. I just have to get it done, or we won’t make it. Our family will sink. And it’s up to me to get things back on track. I know I can do it. I just have to get us back to where we aren’t struggling to stay afloat. And, with this month, I’m determined to get it done. I have set some goals, and I’ve done some serious thinking. Chores are no longer my priority. Sleeping in has to stop. And I just have to focus. I mean, what other choice do I have? Not much! I just have to do this!
From now on, I want to get up early, set writing goals, and finish them before I even move on to anything around the house. And, if something doesn’t get done, then that will just have to be the way it is. A perfect house isn’t worth anything if we can’t even afford to buy groceries. So, I’m done. I’m going to push myself really hard, and I’m going to make it happen. Starting…. now!
