TFL. The catalyst this week is “what is one thing you never thought you could do?”.
Here is all the info:
For me it was to stay at home when I had children. I was afraid I would be a terrible Mom. I had a great career and just assumed I would keep climbing that ladder. I really could not imagine not making an income. Staying home is the best decision I have ever made that went against everything I was feeling at the time.
I never thought I could be a stay-at-home Mom. I grew up believing that I would have a big corporate career. That I would contribute equally to my family if I was to have one. I have always struggled with a lack of patience. I just knew that I would not want to stay home with my kids. I had always, and still do, associated being a good Mom with patience. Once I was pregnant, I was filled with all sorts of fears, but started having a strong desire to leave work. I realized that I wanted to be the one who was home with my new baby. I wanted to be there for everything. I never thought I could. I thought I would be terrible. I am so grateful I did.
I traced and cut a heart out of patterned paper. Then cut it into thin strips horizontally. I removed every other strip after placing it on my page. I then sewed in between each strip and around the heart.
