Follow your passion, go after your dreams, and your life will be better for it. We’ve all heard this many times in our lives.

That’s what I’ve been doing for over three years — following my passion for writing.

Well, let me tell you, it’s not an easy journey. At least not for busy moms who have to juggle a million things in their everyday life.

Being a homeschool mom to my two children, a part-time worker, and a hustler on the side, I’d be lying if I told you my life is a walk in the park. It’s more like a marathon, even if you know how to run.

Between managing my children’s education, keeping up with my part-time job, and nurturing my side hustle, I’m always on the move. And the truth is, I don’t have much time these days because I find myself constantly doing things.

People often ask me how I manage to do it all and keep it all together. My answer to them is simple: if not for the love of my passion and a strong desire to change my life, I probably would’ve quit a long time ago.

Being a mom wearing many hats isn’t easy, though. There are days when I feel like I’m juggling too many balls, and they’re all about to come crashing down.
