Feeling bad (or not as the case may be)…

Morning ladies and here’s to a fabulous start to the week.

I had a great meeting on Thursday, albeit extremely intensive, with a business coach for a project centred around the WMA and we discussed all things about being a working mum.

What I came away thinking is that there are so many common threads no matter who you are or what your background is.

As a rule of thumb we tend to put the little people first and everyone else we care about, ahead of our needs. Then there is the feeling of constantly being torn between making the right decisions that will impact on others. And then there is the feeling that you’re never quite giving enough in any one area of your life.

But please remember who made these rules and decisions in the first place? And it is absolutely within your power to shift the goal posts to beat any of the feelings you’re currently having.

Please see this as a timely reminder to go easy on yourself and to give yourself permission to just do something for you once in a while.

Whilst there are many days when I’m sure you’re like me and have no idea how you will even get to the end of it, I still believe that each of us, deserves a break every now and then. And if that means that you let up on some of the high standards that we set ourselves as working mums, just once in a while then so be it.

So on this Tuesday morning, let’s make a commitment to doing one thing this week for ourselves. As a starter for ten, I’m going to read some books that I’ve been meaning to start for a long time. Make yourself accountable by leaving your commitment to yourself in the comments below… x
