Alright all you overachieving hotties out there- I’d love to know what your biggest challenge has been in being a working mom.  Whether you are an entrepreneur, employee, business owner what obstacle have you come up against in trying to be “superwomen” and wear the many different hats that the cultural mind has imposed on us.  Please speak freely and share with us your challenges,obstacles, road blocks and what- if anything- you have done to overcome them.  My hope is that we will be able to support each other in dealing with these challenges and maybe get some great tips on how to have more ease, joy, and glory in our lives.  How does it get any better than that?!

Namaste,
Maribeth

    • I’m a business owner and do a great amount of work in the wee hours of the morning to make time for my family. I’m an early bird, so this works out great for me.

      In all honesty, my biggest obstacle has always been my husband. He’s an aviator, an engineer, and everything has to be planned out to the “inth“.. he doesn’t really relate much to whims or spontaneous thoughts and often thinks I’m up to something—he calls me, “Lucy“, a lot. He’s not a multi-tasker and I can only ask him to do one thing at a time. He’s also an introvert, expending his energy all day so when he gets home, he has to be fed and the conversation must be brief so he has time to recharge. The key was coming to this “aaha” and having a better understanding of who he is and how he operates. Me? I’m an exrovert - I can steal energy all day long.

      Now that I’ve made him sound like a complete jerk, I like to describe us as soup and salad—we go together, but we‘re different. Our goals are the same, but the way we get there is not.  I “get him” and he “gets” me, our love is strong and tight. In our younger days together, I really had a tough time with him.  I’ve matured - our relationship has matured.  

      Out of respect for me and the fact that I deposit quite a nice amount of monthl, he’s finally settled into the realization that I’m not really just playing with make-up; I’m running a lucrative business and it seems as though I must be doing it well.

      Great post - thanks for the vent! ox

      Hugs,
      Kelly

    • Kelly,
      Too funny. I love how you describe you and your husband as “soup and salad” great analogy!!
      Let me just ask you do you know any boys that can multi-task?  I don’t think it is in their DNA. happy

      Cheers,
      Maribeth
