Catching Dreams

A single mom is defined as just that her whole life, or at least her child’s life. So what happens when your child grows up and moves out, like he is supposed to? I mean, as a parent, that’s our job, right?

Being a single mom defines you for so long, that when your child is finally out of the house, you feel like you have lost your identity!

Color Street has not just become my side hustle, it has given me back my own dreams.I put them on hold for so long, trying to do what I needed to do in order to support my son. I put him first because that’s what we do.
We sacrifice to take care of our kids. It’s not a bad thing at all.
It just seems like in the last few months of this Color Sreet journey, I have begun to take back my dreams. Dreams I didn’t know I had!

After years of the 9 to 5 world, of being a single mom, I feel like I am ready for more! I am redefining myself and my dreams! There is so much more to life than just working to live!
I am finding my purpose and striving towards more! Thanks to a conversation with Sheri at Envisiondreamstyle for the reminder that we don’t need to be chasing dreams, let’s start catching them!

What dreams have you put on hold without even realizing it?
