Can I share something?
I’m sad. And I’m tired. And a lot stressed. And I wonder if I made the right decisions professionally.
I had been excited about some professional possibilities and I was working towards my goals. But it looks like all of that is water under the bridge and I feel like what I had considered success has fluttered through my fingertips.
What does success mean anyhow? Happy kids and family? Yep. What about a balanced work and home life? Definitely. Climbing the corporate ladder? For some. Can I have all of that at the same time and not drive myself insane and work myself to the bone?
How do women – regular women, who aren’t Sheryl Sandberg (and even she is seeing that it’s not a walk in the park) – do it?
Does anyone else feel like that?
Do you feel like your big dreams have turned into big fairytales?
I’m feeling overwhelmed with a few months of maternity leave left.
Ha! And just a couple of weeks ago I was talking about contentment. I’m content, but I’m wondering if I’ve been too content, you know?
I do know it’s never too late to achieve your goals. I have a great, supportive family and two beautiful girls…but what else do I want for me?
So onward and upwards, but honestly, if I spend one more night thinking about what I’m going to do in the future, I’m gonna scream.
