Attitude is everything when it comes to pursuing your dreams.

We all know how it is—between the endless cycle of laundry, cooking, and managing little meltdowns, it’s hard to remember that you once had dreams of your own—and should you dare to pursue your dreams.

Whether it was writing a novel, starting your dream business, or chasing a career that got sidetracked somewhere between diapers and playdates, those dreams don’t have to gather dust in the back of your closet. Here’s why keeping those dreams alive and kicking is a big deal, not just for you, but for your kids too.

Setting A Powerful Example

Let’s face it: our kids watch us like hawks (even when we wish they wouldn’t, like during that accidental swear word slip). When they see you chasing after what you love, they learn some pretty important stuff—like how to stick with something even when it gets tough, how to be passionate, and how to grow constantly. Plus, they see that it’s never too late to go after what you want. Major life lesson alert!

Personal Fulfillment Breeds Happiness

There’s a super simple formula here: Happy mom equals happy kids. Doing something that lights you up inside makes you more likely to spread that joy around the house. And let’s be honest, a joyful, fulfilled mom is like the secret sauce to a happier, calmer household. So go ahead and pick up that old guitar, enroll in that cooking class, or start sketching again—whatever makes your heart sing.

Economic Empowerment

Chasing your dreams can also mean more money for the family pot. And who doesn’t want that? Whether it’s climbing up the career ladder, opening your little shop, or even snagging flexible jobs, there are plenty of ways to fulfill your dreams and boost the family budget. If family life remains a priority to you, then consider teaching jobs.

They are a great way to make a difference, and they often come with the flexibility you need to juggle family life with time off for school holidays. Being financially empowered also sets a great example for the kids in terms of independence and security.

Continuous Personal Growth

Here’s the thing: pursuing your dreams usually means learning new things! Whether mastering new technology, getting that degree, or simply perfecting your pastry skills, every new thing you learn adds to your skillset and boosts your confidence. Plus, showing your kids that learning doesn’t stop when school ends is a win-win.

Expanding Social Networks

Going after your dreams often involves reaching out and connecting with others. This can lead to friendships, professional relationships, and a support network that can really come in handy when you need a pep talk or a sitter in a pinch. Plus, a robust social life is great for mental health—and it shows your kids the value of community and support.

Making Dreams A Reality: Practical Steps For Mothers

So, how do you make this happen? Start small. Break down that big dream into bite-sized pieces. If you want to start a blog, write a post a week. Interested in art? Sign up for a class and draw when the kids nap. Planning is your friend—carve out little chunks of time dedicated to your goals and guard them with your life.

Remember, attitude is everything. There’ll be ups and downs, but keep your chin up and eyes on the prize. Every little step is progress, and it’s all about moving forward, no matter the pace.
