A Message to the Mothers.
I know you are going through trying times, especially during this Pandemic. You are strong, so there’s nothing you can’t handle. Supermommy ( which is what my son calls me) is in full effect, everyday. The way you care for your child, from the moment you find out you are carrying them, is unmatched. You watch their every movement. No one knows them better than you. People may try to judge your parenting, but they have no idea the sacrifices you make every single day for your child.
I am a single mother and raising my son has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Raising him with minimum help was not going to be the reason I wasn’t successful though. It wasn’t until I had him I realized my power. I became more of a risk taker. My choices had to matter. I am determined to raise him to the best of my ability. My son is five years old and he is intelligent, independent, helpful and caring. He keeps me on my toes for sure. He’s everything I could imagine. He is my motivation and that driving force I needed in my life.
I founded YOUR Little SHOP, located in Chicago, in 2019. Opening my first store last year was not an easy decision, but it was either now or never. I was not sure if I was ready or if I would be able to handle the pressure. It wasn't until I accepted that no one was going to save me. If I waited on consistent help I would never be able to get started. I decided to take a chance and everyday I learn something new.
I encourage all mothers to keep pushing. If you haven’t already, find your passion and pursue it. You do not have to be put on hold because you're a mother. Take your time. Do your research. Try to make your schedule around your child's schedule. Stay focused and I promise you as long as you stay consistent you will reach your goals.
Don't be afraid of failure and trust that God will not put more on you than you can handle.
