When my daughter was 2 years old, she asked her dad, “where did I come from?” My husband told her, “mommy and I made you.” After she heard his response she said, “no daddy, I chose you.”
So often when I am working with women they feel a sense of guilt even contemplating pursuing dreams they have for their lives. My belief is that our children choose us. And when they do, they choose us as the highest expression of ourselves. Therefore, pursing your best self is adding to, not taking away from, your children’s lives.
Give yourself permission to be everything that you are destined to be. Your children are depending on it!
