My story as a millennial

If you watch my Instagram Stories, then you already know that I love listening to the Millennial podcast. One day while listening, it got me thinking, "What is my millennial story?" This is what I thought-

One story I have yet to hear is how millennial mom's are making their way through the world.

I'm a 20-something mom and wife of two kids. Just like many of you, I have my dreams and passions. I have aspirations of creating something from nothing. I always thought that maybe I would start a business, be a freelance photographer, or a designer, but in the back of my mind there was this constant nudge to have a family. Even when I was pursuing my career in marketing, the prize in my eyes was being a stay-at-home mom. Weird for a millennial with a passion for women's studies, huh?

I gave up the personal financial security offered by a full-time job with a 401k to go after a dream. I did it to raise a family. It might not be for everyone, but I know it's a story I wish I heard more of. I'm hoping to tell a story that inspires others to push through the struggles of young motherhood, and fight to be a millennial who raised frugal, kind-hearted, and accepting children.

This is my story. It's a story of raising our future. It might be a stretch for some, but if there's anything I've learned, it's that going for what you dream is better than never trying at all.
