Balancing motherhood is a craft that is developed over time. Every woman has her own struggles. No mother is immune to trying to strike the correct balance for her or her family. And, that balance isn’t always the same year to year, month to month or even day to day. It’s a constant reevaluation of priorities.
Last night I read a short, to the point, article about balancing motherhood that includes some great insights. I love one quote from Madeleine Albright:
Women’s careers don’t go in straight lines. They zigzag all over the place.”
Women have so many careers, working moms and stay-at-home moms. There is always a job to be done. No matter if all our jobs are paid, they are important and valued. Take a moment today to be happy with your choices. If you aren’t, see what you can do to alter the course you are headed so that you can find some happiness where you are now.
