Interview with a Successful Single Mom – Highlights
Inspiration for Single Moms
- I became a single mom because I felt like it was the best decision for me and my child. It’s been a long journey, but it has been challenging as well as rewarding.
- You have to realize that you’re never alone because you do have God there too, that you can trust to keep going through the journey. And the way you become successful is to continue to trust God.
- The hardest part (of being a single mom) is just going through transition and having to step out into the unknown to have to step out on and to a world where you don’t know what’s on the other side of those doors.
- The best thing is about being a single parent is the fact that it’s freer. It feels like it’s more about you and your child and it’s something that you can look back on and smile.
- The stronger my relationship becomes with God the stronger my relationship becomes with my daughter. I don’t have to do it alone. He can help me. He can guide me and he’ll remind me that I’m not alone.
Pursuing Your Passion as a Single Mom
- When I learned how to trust God, I learned how to trust the people that God sent into my life. I was nervous about being a single parent. I didn’t know what was going to happen or what I was going to do, but I know I had these passions. I know that I could do a lot of things. I knew that I was talented. I knew that I could do a lot of things. I knew it wasn’t just all about working for me or just the nine to five grind.
- I’ve learned that as a single parent, I can do the impossible. That doesn’t mean that I don’t need help. Sometimes that just means that I have help and I can do the impossible. I’ve learned that I’m free to be me.
- Do what makes you happy. Cause at the end of the day, your children are going to move forward with their lives and do what is their passion. So why don’t you do what’s your passion?
- One thing about being a single parent or a parent, a successful parent, is that whatever you show them, they’re [your children] going to go out and do, they may not have the same profession where they’ll learn how to overcome obstacles. They’ll learn how to move forward and they will learn how to pursue their passions.
- I was scared, but sometimes you have to do things, whether you’re afraid or not. How do you figure out who you are if you don’t step out, even though you have, you may have fears, you may have challenges. You may have obstacles. You’ll never know who you are unless you’re able to just move forward and come out there and just try to make some things happen for yourself.
Theresa’s Nuggets of Inspiration
You have to realize that you’re never alone because you do have God.
I teach my child, “You’re never alone because you have me and you have God.”
How do you figure out who you are if you don’t step out, even though you have fears, you have challenges, you have obstacles. You’ll never know who you are unless you just move forward try to make some things happen for yourself.
