As i take in a deep, long breathe and let out a blessed sigh of relief.
The year I ticked every wish on my list.
Ten years ago I made a wish list and finally it’s achieved. I am living my dream life. I made a conscious decision to start praying to figure out just what is my next chapter in the book of my life. I was feeling a bit anxious as this was the very first time I had nothing to work for. Feeling a bit lost I began searching for something I didn’t even know existed.
My daughter, Kiara took her first step into our big world. She started daycare and we wanted to honour her by giving her a special gift that would always remind her of her first two years at home with us.
My husband and I wrote a children’s book about Kiara’s adventures at home.
With Kiara going to school, I had a little extra time so the more anxious I became and the more prayerful too.
My mum constantly hinted her bright idea of creating a clothing line for Kiara and I just wanted to hear Gods word.
The first 30 years of my life I demanded from God what exactly I wanted but my husband taught me to ask for what God has planned for me. I know his plan is the best plan. I couldn’t even fathom or rationalise his wish list of blessings for me.
One day before going to church I asked God to please give me a sign and the word at church was based on “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”
Immediately my mind started racing what is my treasure and where is my heart. I know my treasure is my God and family and they were not even on my wish list. God knows what we need. I know my heart always goes back to the time I was teaching at a Children’s Home. I was still in High School at the time but I loved the children and just seeing the appreciation on their faces by just me being there with them changed both our lives. I know when we say family to us it means relatives, friends, business colleagues and anyone who shares and supports us in our daily lives. People that make time to think about us and build a relationship with us.
I started the research into marketing for our family businesses and to my surprise instantly fell in love with all things social. I even have my favourites which is Pinterest and Twitter right now. I felt like I found something that was missing in my life, a means of communication to tell my story.
My husband and family have always been supportive of me and for that I am grateful. In helping me achieve my dreams I often wonder if they will have enough time to realise theirs.
So my next chapter is all about helping you in the discovery and the journey in realising what your treasure truly is.
With managing being a mum, wife, 3 family businesses and a portfolio of companies, I almost gave up this new found love but its official we have started blogging 😀
A huge hug and a humongous thank you to all the awesome people we get to share and grow with.
2014 thank you for a memorable year of faith, love and understanding.
2015 we look forward to the amazing adventures that await us. A year of endless possibilities and wisdom to understand the difference.
