Welcome to Redefining Mom! This is my first blog, so thank you for taking the time to stop by and check it out.
The purpose of this blog is to start a dialogue about working AND being a mom = working mom! I want to redefine the way society views a woman who works outside the home. I believe it is a role in society that is undervalued. Through my own personal experience I have come to realize that it is extremely difficult to be everything to everyone. I have a Type A personality, I put a lot of pressure on myself to overachieve at anything I do or try. I’ve always been driven in my career and I intend on keeping that drive now. My baby came ahead of schedule, call me unprepared, but I did not expect what a life change it would be! Navigating the world of being the best I can be as a mom has been exhilarating, fun, sad, joyful, fearful, wonderful, loving, amazing and CHALLENGING!!
I’ve researched endlessly for the magic recipe that would put me at ease with the reality of working and being away from my daughter 50 hours a week, I haven’t figured it out yet. Do you know what google showed me? That I am not alone! There are countless blogs dedicated to this very topic, smart and energetic women just like me who want to show the world we can do everything and anything we want! In my head I can actually be the next Marissa Mayer and a tuned in full-time mother (I’m not sure if that is sarcasm or not!). Seriously, why can’t I build a nursery next to my cubicle? That is a topic for another post, oh how it irks me that she set an unrealistic standard for moms in the workplace!
Join me in the conversation, I want to hear from you!! Most importantly, ALL types of moms are welcome! I believe we all have the same common goal, to do the best we can for our children no matter if we stay home with them each and every day or we go into an office. Join in the fun here and let’s redefine the way society views the exceptional role that I call MOM!!
