This is a GREAT message.
So many times in life we are tempted to take the easy road. We wonder if anyone will even notice the difference if we don’t really give our all. Worse yet, we get down on ourselves and feel defeated even before we start.
But sometimes people do notice. Most of all, we know it about ourselves even if no one else does. If you make a commitment to do something in your life…give it your all!
Even if no one else sees it or notices, you will wake up every day knowing that you put 100% of your best into crafting the life of your dreams.
Here’s a great little story to remind us…[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQOxeKzS6R8[/youtube]
So we really have to ask ourselves, “How do I go the extra mile in my life and work?”

When I was a new mom, I felt a struggle between the easy way out, and the right way out. Looking back, it has been 16 years afterall, I don’t want to do it any differently. I chose to (sometimes, fought to) stay on the homefront, looking after my family. I had two boys to keep after and a husband, whose career was critical to the welfare of our family. I have at times, thought I could have been more of a financial contributor; yet I am satisfied with the knowledge I’ve gained … I’m named myself SLAVGIRL2.0: phenom cooking, art, design, stained glass, cleaning (it’s a skilll..), auto repair, appliance repair, chauffeur services extaordinaire, psychiatry, chemistry, budgeting… I could go on…Find a purpose, and life can be fun. For now.

Wow Lucy! That’s a great story and a great accomplishment too. Like you, we have 2 boys and then were surprised (blessed!) a few years later by a little girl. I can absolutely understand becoming a master at all kinds of things out of necessity. I’m glad you shared this so close to Mother’s Day. I hope you had a great one!
