Supporting Each Other…

Why supporting each other is important…

Sometimes we get so caught up in being busy that it’s easy to miss what else is going on around us.

We miss the fact that a fellow working mum is struggling, or could really do with a shoulder to cry on, or just a simple cup of coffee.

And yet there are times, and will no doubt be times in the future when we would all like to feel that we have that support.

It’s one of the main reasons that I started The Working Mum Association in the first place; so that working mums everywhere have a place that they can find inspiration, support and encouragement. In short, now that you have found us, you will never be alone.

And it doesn’t matter what stage of the journey you are at. Each one presents itself with its own unique challenges. So whether you’re a mum just returning to work from maternity leave, or your children are in their teens, please look out for your fellow working mums. Support and help them where you can, and you will find that support and help will come back ten-fold.

Together, we can build an amazing community of like-minded women because together, we truly can become unstoppable.

Beating the Overwhelm…

Sometimes things can feel as if they’re getting too much. I know that I certainly feel this way at the moment but on my way into work this morning I made a conscious decision and I hope that it will in somehow help you if you’re reading this now.

I started to run through a list of everything that I’m grateful for.

My gorgeous little boy, hubby, the fact that we will be going on a holiday of a lifetime soon, all of these amazing things.

And yes I am stressed at the moment. There is a lot going on all at once and demands are being placed on me, which I feel to a certain extent are unfair.

But by refocusing on the good things, the positive things, it has helped to calm me, to re-centre my focus and it will mean that I’m more productive, more present for those I love and more importantly am more in tune with myself in terms of what I need.

Give it a go – it works for me, and I really hope that it works for you.

The sun is shining, warm weather is around the corner. Today is going to be your day. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way… x
