Is it possible for a woman to have everything figured out? is a question I’ve been asked many times. Well, guess what? YES, IT IS.
Are you wondering how I know this?
Well, I am the one woman that has it all figured out.
I am a mother of two wonderful children and I give my best to raise them the best way I can. But, I also have the unspoken pressure to behave like I don’t have any kids when my boss calls me on the phone to talk to me about important projects when I am at home, of course, surrounded by my children.
I have an “obligation” to be well acquainted with the most popular YouTubers in 2019, because, you know, I have to know what’s in on social media today, but I also have my 9-year-old daughter that tells me that I shouldn’t be trying to act so cool.
Then I have no trouble lying about “attending an important business meeting” when I am actually with my children and no trouble lying to my children about “having to work on a project” when I chat with friends on Facebook.
I have many responsibilities as a mother and as a top professional, but guess what? I’ve never let my responsibilities, both at home and at work, prevent me from going to the gym three times a week. Yes, I make sure I consume healthy food and keep myself physically fit because I want to teach my kids that maintaining our health should always be our number one priority.
I have male co-workers that tell me that I lack the strength to achieve what I want in my career and female co-workers that tell me I work too hard to achieve my career goals and that I should slow down.
I have the perseverance to help my kids write homework till late at night and then wake up and get ready for work at 6 a.m.
I have a clear sense of who I am and where I’m supposed to be in life.
I have the confidence to say no to projects that I don’t want to participate in, and the ability to keep myself from flying off the handle when my colleagues try to downplay my achievements.
I have the strength to cut people out of my life who drain my energy, trash my happiness, and hinder my growth, and the willingness to nurture my relationships with people who mean a lot to me and who genuinely love and care about me.
I have the confidence and willingness to pursue high goals and the strength to face my failures.
I have the courage to stand up for myself when others try to accuse me of something that’s not my fault, and the courage to admit my mistakes and take personal responsibility for my actions.
I have the ability to live in the present moment, and the courage and willingness to accept with open arms whatever tomorrow brings.
