On Working Mom Guilt…with The MOB Society
I’m over at The Moms of Boys Society this week writing about the guilt that comes with being a working mom. Here’s a bit…hop on over and share YOUR thoughts!
I’ve always been a working mother. It wasn’t what I really wanted or aspired to, but it was what was required of the life we lived here in the Silicon Valley, and the life I believe we were meant to be living.
The Hebrew word for “noble woman” here is actually “woman of valor” Eshet Chayil which means strength of mind or spirit. Courage in the face of adversity.
If working outside the home and raising kids simultaneously doesn’t require strength of mind and courage in the face adversity, I don’t know what does. Any of you who have lain awake at 3am listening to your child cough and wondered how you’re going to stay home with a sick child AND chair the board meeting, or present the sales analysis, or plan that event the following day know exactly what I mean.
The conversation continues on Facebook. Follow my author page for more insights and resources about living a shiny, abundant and beautiful life.
