I’ve been a working mom for four years now. There are days when I feel like I have things together and I’m handling this work-life-family balance quite well. Most days though, I feel like I’m just hanging on for dear life. My motto when things get crazy is “Just keep swimming!” (props to Finding Nemo)
All moms have days like this. I don’t think that ever stops. Parenting is HARD, there is no “Easy button”, there is no pause, no rewind, and you don’t get a Mulligan.
Being a mother is only one aspect of who I am as a person. I certainly feel that being a mom is a vital part of the equation, but I’m also a wife, a daughter, a friend, a Christian, a sister, and an employee. I don’t ever want “mom” to be the only label to define me, I feel that God made me for so much more, which means that balancing all of these parts of me is vital. It makes me a better mom. My good balance teaches my children, by example, how to live an abundant and full life.
This blog is for moms who long to find that balance. I hope that this space provides hope, inspiration, motivation, peace, and most of all support for working moms.
This blog is for moms who work full-time, part-time, those who work in the home, out of the home, or in someone else’s home. We’re here for moms who love their job, hate their job, and moms who cry every day because of their jobs. Moms who work day shift, third shift, or swing shift. Moms who work in the corporate world, the classroom, the medical field, the freelancers, retail working moms, mommy waitresses, network marketing moms, and everyone in between.
You are not alone.
Welcome. I hope you grab your energy drink of choice, prop up your feet for just a moment, and gain some refreshment here.
