How I Went From Dreamer to Doer: The Story of a Mompreneur

…I was leaning over a bush and carrying my daughter in my arms as she pooped, while my son was peeing next to us. At that moment, I thought:
Is this what my life is going to be from now on?

5 years ago, I was a SAHM drowning in everyday life. I felt undervalued, invisible, bored, and I was probably near depression. A couple of years before my family had immigrated to the U.S. Since my husband had a travel-intensive job I decided to stay at home to bring a sense of stability into our circle.

On the day that I mentioned above I had had an informal meeting at a friend’s home. She had invited me to have coffee and chat about her women empowering project. I felt fired up by her words and that morning I decided that I would finally start my home business.

On my way to our afternoon activities I stopped to leave a donation on a Goodwill truck. My car battery died, and we were stranded in an empty parking lot.

While waiting for help to arrive, my son and daughter told me that they need to use the restroom. There was nothing nearby. We couldn’t leave. I wanted to cry! But as any mom would have done, I pushed through the situation and helped my kids. Driving back home, I kept thinking about how powerful I had felt in the morning and how defeated I felt in the afternoon. However, in the end, I realized my inner win:

If I had the strength to handle two kids’ nature calls simultaneously in a deserted parking lot, then I was strong enough to do everything I wanted!

That very day I stopped being a dreamer and became a doer.
