Workin’ Mom

If you’re reading this, thanks already.

To my fellow working mom’s: maybe you can relate..

Sometimes I feel like an awesome business owner, and sometimes I feel like an awesome mom. ⁣

But, it’s never on the same day.⁣

And that bugs me. ⁣

I am a woman with two dreams, one identity crisis and budding imposter syndrome. ⁣

𝗘𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗲𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽: brings out my work ethic, my hustle, my independence, my passion: the identity I’ve called home for years. My work-life. ⁣

𝗠𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗵𝗼𝗼𝗱: brings fullness to my heart, my instinctual nature, my family values, my femininity, my future: the identity I dreamed of for years. My home-life. ⁣

Leaving my kids to work makes me feel bad. Being with them but distracted by work also makes me feel bad. Spending the entire day lounging on the rocker with a bottle and a baby, also makes me feel bad.⁣

I’d do anything for these children… but I also want to work. ⁣

How do you working moms out there find a balance that feels right without the mom-guilt? ⁣
