Working mothers – We can’t have it all

Today I came across this article from The Independent and it immediately hit home. It just so wonderfully lays ground for the well-being posts I am working on.

This great write up worth a read:

Love, A.

As a working mother, I know that we can’t ‘have it all’ – and there’s nothing wrong with that | The Independent

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a ballerina, a model or a necklace. I would have three children (one boy and two girls), live in a palatial house and marry a millionaire. My constraints may have been skewed but the adult world was my oyster.  Fast-forward thirty years and the reality is somewhat unrecognisable from my expectation. I thought I could be anything I wanted, juggle work and parenting and be the most attentive wife possible whilst building a tidy nest egg. Sometimes I laugh at how misguided I was – sometimes I want to cry.
