Rediscovering your best self
I have a confession to make, and you should sit down and get cozy for a bit. I am admitting that I lost my true identity after having kids. I need you to hear me when I say I love my kids. But the reality is I have put my needs and feelings aside for about a decade since raising my kids.
Can you relate? I hope so; otherwise, it will be side-eyes and awkward conversations from you the next time we see each other at an event. If you don’t have kids at home, have you buried yourself in work and don’t know where you start and your job ends? Working from home has created the never-ending work day.
Here’s the reality, as busy moms and co-workers, it is hard to balance it all. Some days I am a great mom and a terrible employee; other days, I am a rockstar employee and a terrible mom. What I am learning is I need to take control of my life again. I am learning to put boundaries up to keep my time sacred. I let my husband drive the kids to school in the morning, giving me 30 glorious minutes to myself. I drink a cup of tea, write in my journal and sit before I start my day.
P.S. Please join me on the path of prioritizing yourself too. You can start by picking up one of our loose-leaf teas or our fan-favorite chai teas.
