If there is one thing that my husband Stephen and I try our very hardest to instill in our children, it would be that you're never too old to chase your dreams. We try our best to encourage them to find their passion and do whatever is in this crazy life that sets their soul on fire.

We also want our kids to know that hard work does pay off, and it won't always be easy, but it will be worth it. I personally think the best way to teach your children something is to lead by example. Kids notice so much about their parents, no matter what it is, work ethic, morals, etc., and in turn, are often shaped by the actions they see daily.

That being said, we want our kids to see us work hard and follow every one of our dreams. You know the thing we are so passionate about it sets our souls on fire. For me, that's anything radio, and in this journey, it hasn't been easy; they know that. But they see my growth and love for it, and even at such a young age, they encourage me to follow my dreams.

This brings me to my next point. After years and years of Stephen being the sole supporter of our family, he has decided it's time that he is passionate about what he does, day in and day out. Last week Stephen took the first step and officially signed up to pursue his lifelong passion for personal fitness and nutrition.

We as a family couldn't be more proud that he is finally going after his dream.

If you're reading this and you know you aren't following your dreams, take action and make it happen. I promise you'll be so much happier in the end.
