Straight Outta My Comfort Zone

For those who do not know me personally, I have been in the dental field for over 7 years. It is my comfort zone and where I know I excel. Dentistry has been kind to me and I have been blessed to learn from so many incredible managers and providers.

Over the last year my husband’s construction company has flourished. He has gotten incredibly busy and has created a local name for himself. I have handled his bookkeeping for a while and he wanted me to help with his marketing and scheduling too.

I had been working part-time in a dental office and was trying to market for that practice, as well as, for his business. I just didn’t have enough time. Robert kept saying, “You know you can always come work for me.”

I would laugh it off or roll my eyes because I couldn’t imagine my life without dentistry. I know that sounds silly, but it really was a security blanket for me. Last week I felt God nudge.

With complete peace in my heart, faith in my Higher Power, and commitment to my husband’s dream; I turned in my two weeks notice. I was nervous to have Trembley’s Paint and Home Repair as our sole income, but I could not deny how much the business had developed and how much home, accounting, and marketing help my spouse really needed.

I speak about us mamas often. Y’all are such a big piece of my heart. God has bound us together and made YOU my mission. I love y’all! What I should probably also share is that I am married to such a good dad.

He funds every wish, want, dream, and need. My husband does about 95% of the child transportation including handling the “Can you bring me the thing I left at the house” calls.

The man even drove to Virginia to buy the oldest two goats and drove them back inside his jeep (where they also peed)! Ha! He doesn’t miss games. He takes all of our attitudes and moodiness and sometimes downright hatefulness and just waits open-armed for us to come back to reality.

Robert is a dad and dads are also very incredible! I am grateful to support his business, but also to support our children even more. It is hard to step out of my comfort zone. It is scary to try something completely different, but I have a pretty great boss and, most importantly, a God I can trust.

Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Mama, listen to the nudges. See your potential. Look at your spouse or coparent and celebrate them. Sometimes we have to. allow them to be rockstars too. šŸ˜‰
