The following ramblings are about a super awesome Pittsburgh conference designed exclusively for Moms! You can find all of the details about this years Nov. 7th conference location, times and cost by heading over to their website: http://themomcon.com/
A few days ago I cooked dinner for the kids, folded the laundry, read Amelia Bedelia before bed. Gave all the extra hugs and wrestle time and sips of water. But inside I was freaking out. I had a mini melt down on Friday. A silent, hidden, crazy-person meltdown. About this- THIS!
(Awesome, right? So why the meltdown?!)
When Natalie and Nicole approached me last year about “leading a workshop” at The Mom Con I was thrilled. I was proud of myself and couldn’t stop smiling- someone want me to SPEAK at a conference. To teach… To share. That… Well that was exciting.
Look how teeny Sally was last year at the conference! Oh my heart. And look how gorgeous these beautiful friends of mine are. <3
Fast forward to this summer. I have a crazy big idea in my head that I can’t really articulate. I’m feeling excited like all the parts of myself- the mother, the wife, the art teacher, the artist, the friend- were coming together (finally) in a storm of purpose. An idea that expanded on so many of my creative ideas while building real community and inspiring women.
But it’s the middle of September now and I’m terrified. I’m so scared to fail, to waste time and energy and resources, precious family time that isn’t found in excess these days. What if people don’t respond like I hope? What if my idea is dumb? What if I can’t do it “good enough”? What if the community success is large but the dollars are small? Does that matter? How do I measure success? Where will my worth be and what’s most important to my family?
I made a decision this morning. I decided to just say F it. (Sorry) I can do this. Being scared is ok. This is what The Mom Con is all about. Dreaming big. Finding motivation and inspiration. Connecting with other mothers who are also dreaming big and succeeding!
I don’t know what I’ll be speaking about yet- what exactly I’ll be sharing. But here’s a sneak:
That’s all I’ve got for now. And I’ve finally decided… That’s ok!
I’ve got ONE ticket to giveaway to one of you sweet Mama’s out there reading this and hoping to go. I want to meet you in person, have a cup of coffee together, share The Mom Con experience with a real friend! Enter below before midnight on FRIDAY. Good luck!
