Dreams VS Responsibility

Connie Dibartola @raise_hell_and_babies

When I was 10 years old my mom was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. I lost my mom three years ago at age 27. She was one hell of a fighter. I knew that fight was to be here to see my sister and I grow up, just to be here for us. Once I became a mother myself this great fear of not being here for my children grew inside me to the point where I avoided anything that put me in danger, things as silly as flying anywhere and let's face it riding a motorcycle is at the top of that list.

I have three little ones my youngest being 3 years old and they are the loves of my life. As a mother most of the time we put our children first as we should ,but we also have dreams and ambitions. One of my dreams since I was a little girl was to ride motorcycles with my dad and uncle. Last year I decided  that I know I don't want my children to let their fears hold them back as I had for so long. From making their dreams come true and living life to its up most potential. What better way then to lead by example. So I asked my uncle to teach me how to ride and he was all for it.

I learned on his 883 iron and the first time I shifted into 4th gear...yes just forth gear I literally said out loud "fuck yeah" and never looked back. I know every time I hop on my bike I'm taking a risk ,I know I can't control everything but I can control my own personal choices and I choose to live and not just dream anymore. That's what I hope my children choose for themselves when the time comes. So like I say Raise Hell and Babies! Don't let your fears hold you back.
