Well hellloooo! Life is starting to get super busy & super crazy all at once. When I turned the big 3-0 this year, my goal was to live my best life. I said this year would be my best year yet and then boom my life took off. I received a promotion on my job, started feeling like a boss mom and then the balancing act begun.
First, I was working a little later and it meant getting dinner started later. Okay, cool. I can handle that. Now, I’m looking up crock pot dinners on Pinterest because by the time I get home on some days, my kids are snoring. I’m honestly starting to rethink this whole boss mom life. We often want the reward but forget about all of the hard work and sacrifice it takes to get it.
What do you do when you are trying to be your best self AND be the best mom ever?? Is it possible to be both? Do I have to choose? Should I have to choose? I mean when you have kids does that mean that your hopes and dreams are on hold while you raise them? If I were a man, would I even have to ask myself these questions? Seriously, society puts so much pressure on women to drop everything to become the perfect mother and wife, and I’m having a hard time figuring this thing out.
So, what do I do now? Quit my job? Find a “regular” job? I mean, there is absolutely nothing regular about me. I tried it, I just can’t do it. I want my children to be proud of me AND I want to be proud of myself. Is that too much to ask? I’m on this journey to figure out how to have the best of both worlds. Balance and fulfillment. I promise I will keep you updated because I know some of you are on this journey with me. Hang in there mama, we got this!
