The scale seems to never be balanced. Being a wife, mom, photographer and aspiring entrepreneur/business owner are all major roles. But us woman are superheroes. Some way, some how we get it done. Doesn’t mean we aren’t tired at the end of the day (some times at the beginning, before it all even starts) Try playing all those roles and still maintaining a social life, time for yourself and keeping a clean house! (the struggle is real) but no matter the days work at hand, I still wouldn’t trade it all for the world.
I’ve only been a mom for 3 months so I’m still adjusting and trying to maintain some what of a balance in my everyday life. Some days are better than others but as time progresses things seem to get better and life begins to have some kind of order.
I’ve been lucky, blessed and fortunate enough to have a loving and supportive husband whom doesn’t want me to go back to working. I thank God for him because he pushes, supports, and encourages me to follow my dreams and work on my goals as an entrepreneur/business owner. He is truly my biggest support system.
Being a stay at home mom is alot of work. It sounded so easy and smooth sailing when I was pregnant. Soon as my baby girl came reality followed. I tend to be a bit hard on myself, being my biggest critic. So I have to constantly remind myself “You are doing the best you can.” To not get discouraged, to not give up when things get tough and Consistency is key.
Looking at my baby girl motivates me to work harder at my dreams and goals. To be an example for her, so she will know you can follow what God has placed in your heart, take a leap of faith and go after any and everything your heart desires. I want to show her you can turn a passion into a career, if she so chooses, and that you dont have to work and answer to anyone but yourself.
This whole mom and entrepreneur thing is new to me, but gradually I will find a balance and be able to accomplish all my goals and still be a great mom.
