I’m not going to lie.
My mum always used to say to me that you can have a career. Or you can have a baby.
I really don’t believe that we live in a time where its it’s either or.
That doesn’t mean that I never get overwhelmed or anxious. Being a working parent is hard!
When I was on mat leave, my work never kept in touch and I was quickly forgotten. They only got in touch to tell me that my role was being put at risk.
Upon returning into the working world, I soon realised that finding the right work life balance was like winning the lottery.
It takes a village to raise a baby.

And I don’t regret going back work. I like being a positive role model for my daughter.
But sometimes, I can’t help but feel overstretched. Like, I’m not giving enough attention to everything.
I really believe that I will find growth only at the end of my comfort zone.
So, this is where I am. It never stops being hard, but I believe it’ll be worth it.
