I think the idea of balance is bullshit.
Women are expected to “have it all.”
Be a rock star in the workplace
Be superwoman at home
Be a great and present mom
Take good care of ourselves
…and at some point, we have to sleep!
I mean seriously…there aren’t enough hours in the day.
I had a therapist who used to say to me, “You CAN have it all – just not at the same time.”
And the messaging that we should have it all at the same time? Outdated garbage that leaves women constantly feeling inadequate.
Now – the idea of designing a life you want? I absolutely believe that’s possible. But it takes intention, work and a village. It takes owning that you can’t do it alone. When people ask me why I have a coach, I always laugh because first I say, “Which one?!?” I have a variety of coaches that help me in different areas of my life. Each one has been invaluable and I’m so grateful for them.
Who’s supporting you in creating a life you love?
