The balance with parenting, work life and home life feels impossible for most of us right?? Every day we muddle through and do the best we can, beating ourselves up in the process that we didn’t get it right…feeling guilty about what we could have done better or how we did or didn’t handle a situation. We should pat ourselves on the back more often though and tell ourselves that we are doing a good job and that it's okay not to be a perfect person all the time or the perfect parent. After all, is there such a thing?
When I took a leap of faith to start up the business I was scared, petrified even that it wouldn't take off or work out. I think I probably had my head in the clouds about how things would roll....I would advertise, I would get clients, I would earn money. Simples.
Hard work...if not obsession was required and hard work and obsession was what went and still goes in. But I feel like I'm finding that flow now. I'm starting to realise that it isn't a race to an end point, but instead a journey I am on....and which I am learning on all the time, building knowledge and growing with every mistake I make.
