These “About Me” sections are so awkward, kind of feel like I am filling out a profile for online dating but here goes. My name is Stacey and currently my occupation is a mixture of stay at home mom and substitute teacher. I have three awesome kids that are my everything. They are good human beings in spite of my many mom fails. Their dad and I have been married for 16 years. He is honestly my best friend, sorry about the cliche but he is. He has dedicated his entire career to being a “helper” as Mr. Rogers would say. Helping is the reason he chose his career and it’s tough because most jobs that exist to help others are often thankless. These four people are my why. They are why this page exists.
So I guess I need to share a little about me and who I am. The sad part is that I’m not 100% sure what that looks like. Growing up, the only thing I knew I wanted to be was a mom so I’m thankful that came to fruition. I wear a lot of hats as a mother but none of them are really just for Stacey. The only other real goal I remember having was to become a teacher. I didn’t quite get to the finish line but I still want to work with children. So I’m trying on a new hat, to create this platform for younger generations. I hope that it becomes a place to encourage them to push through fear and not let anything hold them back. I’d love to help them find their purpose and start living life as the best version of themselves.
I have no idea what this path will look like but I imagine a lot of trial and error. I do know that if I wait until I have it all figured out, I will never launch at all. For the first time in my life, I am putting my own fears and insecurities aside to do what I want. My only hope is that I inspire one or two to do the same.
