In my lifetime I have been an accountant, a CPA member, a CFO, a Director of Possibilities, a Commercial Manager, a CEO, a Financial Coach .. but the minute I gave birth to my son, the only title that seemed to matter to the outside world was "Mum". And perhaps a little more internal than I gave it credit for. But essentially from the moment I met my son .. my world and my perception of me in it changed. I was flung into a feeling of guilt I'd never felt before.
Guilt because my business was where I felt more at home, more drawn to ... but I now have a child that needs me, that I love more than any other love I've known before .. but there just isn't enough hours in the day to be everything for everyone.
This episode is a glimpse into how my world changed when I had my son. How every day since has been a combination of carrying my laptop around to get a moment of work in between my duties as a mum, how I feel the most aligned to my work whilst still figuring this mum stuff out and of course the steps that I take on a daily basis to combat these feelings.
I know I'm not alone in this .. and perhaps this is my way of changing the narrative, changing the words .. eliminating the term guilt and just recognising that more needs to be done to ensure that we educate our children along with ourselves on the premise that there is a human side to being a mum and how we have more outside of our "mum" world and that we have other things we need to attend to.
