Freedom from FEAR!

Have you ever looked back and wished you had of said “YES” instead of “NO”?

Do you often wonder how many opportunities you missed out on because of FEAR?

The people who raised me live in fear & shame. They were paralyzed in fear. Every decision they made was fear-based or shame-based.
::
When I met my husband Ryan Hord over a decade ago I was terrified. I was terrified of everything. I was not living. I was not coping. I was just existing.
::
The trend nowadays seems to be to just sit and watch life pass you by and observe others who are living and be either bitter, angry, resentful, envious and/or depressed because your life is not the same.
::
5 years ago I was given the greatest gift that I could receive next to my children and that was another chance to live, but offered to me in quite a different package. I excepted it graciously, yet skeptical and still bound by fear.
::
One thing I realized is that my fear, my shame, my belief system was shape so much more by other people’s experiences rather than my own. It’s one thing to learn after observing other people’s failures, mistakes or experiences, but to completely live your life in such a limiting way based on someone else’s reality is not actually LIVING!
::
One of the saddest things that I believe I could ever have to watch, regarding my children, is watching them not live up to their potential and know that it is because I set the bar for them.
::
I don’t consider myself “blessed” or “lucky”, but I am grateful every single day for the opportunity that was presented to me and for the push that I received from my coach all the way up the line to those who work hard in our corporate offices and our CEO who made this opportunity possible for anybody and everybody.
::
Because of my hard work, determination and relentless passion to pursue a better life, I have been able to provide my children with the life that I only dreamed of as a child. I see parents and hear parents who live by the mantra of “I’m going to give my children but I never had!” And so they spoil them, buy them everything, make excuses for them, clean up after their messes, coddle them, but really what they’re doing is nurturing their inner child that still feels like they’re missing out on something or got the short end of the stick as a child.
::
I want to leave a legacy behind, something that I can be remembered by and that my children can be proud of me for. The best thing that I can leave my mark on in this world is by leaving behind well-adjusted mature, responsible, kind and amazing children. My gift to my children enter this world is to create children they grow into adults that have experience, perspective, it’s substance, and live freely, speak freely and act kindly and thoughtfully because they know who they are, what they stand for and what interests and inspires them.

Back in the summer of 2013 I was able to afford to send Haylie on her 8th-grade trip to New York. This past summer I was able to send Emily on a 10-day trip out of the country with her cousin and other children from our school district. Both girls came back different. They came back more independent, wiser, stronger, bolder, braver & shined brighter.

Haylie has the chance to go on her senior trip in March 2018. She said she didn’t want to go. Why? She didn’t want me to have to spend the money. We sat down and had a talk. I told her I wasn’t going to force her to go, but I wanted her to go. I explain to her that I wanted her to go and see the world while she can’t and have the time of her life because she gets a chance to do the things that I didn’t because she has different parents who live in a different time and under different circumstances. I explained the difference I saw in her and her sister after they returned from their last trip. I explained to her that it’s her last chance before college to LIVE IT UP! She said she really didn’t have much of a desire to see Germany that she would rather go to New York. So I encouraged her to dream bigger and think bigger and realize that she could go to New York at any point in time later on in life, fairly easily and that she might end up in college near there and that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I encouraged her to rethink going because she would gain so much perspective from a country that she had never been to before and that she may end up having the time of her life. I told her that even if she went and didn’t have the most fabulous time ever, then it’d still be one hell of a story to tell & that I’m quite sure she’s not regret going.

…… But above all, I told her that I felt that she MUST go because if she does these kind of things NOW, then she’ll never be afraid of change or trying new things and that she won’t end up a 30 year old woman terrified of her own shadow and having to learn to live, like I WAS!

So…. her final decision led to me registering her today! I’m so excited and so grateful to be able to give my children the gift of EXPERIENCE, PERSPECTIVE, FREEDOM from FEAR, INDEPENDENCE & this will help her add value wherever she goes in life. This is much better than any material possession I could buy her. I’m not living through her, but teaching her and her siblings to LIVE LIFE on their own terms.

So I don’t see what I do as a “pyramid scheme”. I see this as an opportunity to help generations to come live up to their POTENTIAL & stop living in FEAR!

I love that all of my children have passports, which shows that I am changing the pattern that I was raised in because I was well 32 when I finally obtained my passport and 33 before I ever left the US!
