Have you ever had to embrace a change in life that scares the hell out of you, but you want it like nothing before… you know how much time, effort and sacrifice it is going to take… but you want it anyway? Or maybe you realize it is because it scares the hell out of you that you want it so desperately? But, once you get it, you think—holy crap, did I really ask for this?
Well, I remember when I was handed my twin babies for the first time. I was overwhelmed, excited, terrified, overjoyed, feeling under-qualified and scared to death all in the same moment. A million questions were running through my mind at once. Was I going to be a good mom? Would they like me? Would I like them? Could I really do this? How am I going to do this? What if I failed? Who would I become? Who would they become? OMG! There’s no turning back.
These same raw emotions have surfaced again now that I’ve started CherylStyle. Holy crap! I’m no longer a little bit pregnant! I’ve got this ‘newborn’ that needs my undivided attention. However, this time, this is my fourth child and my attention is divided. How am I going to do this? What have I created? Can I live up to my dream? Will people like me? Will my family love this, or hate it? How will my friendships survive the stress? Can I lead? Can I follow? Who should I follow? What will I become? ….who am I?
I know this is only the beginning of a long journey and who knows what the answers to all these questions will be. All I know is that I will forever be changed by the creation of CherylStyle no differently than how I was forever changed when I became a mother. No matter what comes of this journey, my life has been altered. I now see the world with a CherylStyle lens and that lens will forever color the way I view the world. Let’s just say I now wear
rose orange tinted glasses. And the world is a beautiful place.
Live the moment,
