Let's talk about priorities and being a mother. Why? Because it is Mother's day and I am a mother too. Further, priorities are the key to achieve what we desire.
I am loving the mammahood even more recently. I have worked on so many limiting beliefs about being a mother in the last 2 years. Beliefs such as "Motherhood is traumatic." "Motherhood is a sacrifice." They sound scary, don't they! They are gone and I am free.
I have 2 beautiful boys, 4.5 years old and 2.5 months old. I launched my intuitive therapy and coaching business while I was pregnant with my second child. So, I had to make some important decisions and set my priorities in order to enjoy my newborn, grow my business and continue making an impact on others lives.
Life doesn't have to be lived in silos, in isolated worlds such as business and family. I am telling this because I do know so many people live that way not because they like it but because this is the only way they know.
Prior to my current lifestyle, I was in a typical corporate world with flashlights. I had degrees from world-class schools. I am proud of and grateful for these achievements. However I realized that was not happiness for me.
After becoming a mother, I said NO to having to leave my child to a daycare at early morning and rushing to the train station or driving to the office while thinking "Oh, am I going to be late?" and having to watch the time in the afternoon so I am not late to pick up my child or having a family dinner together. This may be OK for many people, I am not judging anybody. We live what we choose.
My point here is that we can make our own choices, there isn't only one way of having a career. I knew "the change" was possible therefore I searched for options and possibilities. .
Now, I work from my garden office. I breastfeed my 2.5 months old baby during his feed times, cuddle him as much as I want, play with my eldest one in the afternoon while launching a big project. I have calls and interviews every day. I can still make those things happen because I set my priorities and schedule my day accordingly.
Do you know what is even more amazing? When I became confident in my choices, I started to get people who respected my priorities and choices. The outer world started to be in alignment with my inner world. The universe literally got my back :-)
What are your priorities and how do you choose to live?
