Ok, yes, I’m partial.

As a woman, I feel that we are absolutely awesome. We juggle everyone and everything to facilitate home, business and relationships.

And still, we struggle….

I have stood looking over my choices many many times…questioning….wondering…. Have I done it right? Fortunately, at this point, I care very little what others think about my choices. This age brings clarity and resolve that my choices have lead me to exactly this point in my life, career and personal growth.

So ….. this is what I know so far:

Parenting is the single best thing I have ever done. I felt at times that I wasn’t respected for my choice to work from home and not pursue my degree-oriented career. To be honest, it has been a sacrifice, but one that I would do over in a heartbeat. Hands-down, my two boys are the achievements of my lifetime. I would not trade my time with them for anything or any measure of financial success…they are my success. Working from home has allowed me to be there for them….the element of time is an ever-important commodity that many parents overlook. Children crave attention from their parents….they flourish in the presence of it and are lost if not there.

Self-care is not optional. Health, fitness and finding your own personal balance is mandatory BEFORE you can give of yourself to others. Mental health is just as important. Knowing you can reach out….that someone around you has felt exactly like you are feeling, is important. Putting into practice those rituals that nourish your mind, body and spirit is essential to wellness. It can be as simple as a hot bath, a run, or some of your favourite music playing, but knowing your self-care routine and practicing is essential.

So celebrate…celebrate yourself, celebrate other women. Take care of yourself and the women around you. Love on yourself, and love on those women who inspire you.

We say that we want change. We say that we want to grow. We say things like “I’ve forgiven” or “it’s not really a big deal to me anymore” because we want to be over it. We’re tired of having the same arguments. Tired of attracting the same toxic people into our lives.  Tired of reliving the experiences and emotions that make up our history.
