How I get my husband’s permission for the dreams I want is a common thought Mompreneurs share, right? Do you catch yourself thinking:
I gotta ask my husband…
“Can I buy this shirt I love?”
“Is it okay if I go on vacation with my friends?”
“Can I watch TV even if he’s out working?”
“Can I invest in myself and business?”
Earlier on in my marriage, I felt like I had to ask for permission to buy and do things because I didn’t have a “real job”. After all, I was just an entrepreneur earning a living, and a new mom working from home.
I’d create so much drama and play out arguments with my husband in my head. Ridiculous and humorous now.
One day I thought to myself: “Susan, accept responsibility in your marriage to COMMUNICATE.”
It’s that simple.
I don’t need to ask – and he doesn’t need to ask.
We simply have to communicate, discuss, and share our why’s. We have to share our goals, passions, self-care, and dreams with our partners.
So I started to do more of that. And I also asked for more help from babysitters, asked my family for support, and got back to the things I loved.
We both work hard, and we both deserve to fit in the joys we love in life.
I’m not a marriage coach, but what I’ve been trained on and experienced myself, is that it all comes down to communication and sharing your vision with your partner.
Ask him his goals and include his wants, and tell him yours, so you both create your dream life together.
You don’t have to ask for your husband’s permission.
Communicate, share your dreams—and your Mompreneur Life will soar!
