    Excellent Post! When I was rienadg this, I must say that I felt like I was rienadg an article that I would have written a year ago it sounded so familiar. I am a CEO in healthcare, and most of my work requires lectures across the country. Needless to say, it means a lot of travel. For the first year of my daughter’s life, she flew with me it was practical, because as much as I tried she never took a bottle! Then, during her second year, I really struggled to maintain balance. I would fly one week out of the month, then work from home the rest of the time, with a nanny at the house to take care of my daughter. That way, I could see her as often as I wanted when I was in town working. It was definitely a juggling act, though, because I constantly crammed a 60 hour a week business into 30 hours a week of nanny time so that I could have an abundance of extra free time to spend with my little girl doing mommy/daughter days. Then everything came to a screeching halt and while I was in between business trips, the hatch of my SUV fell on my head at Costco. I got a mild TBI with post concussive syndrome. That was exactly one year ago, this week. I am still recovering, still unable to drive, still unable to work, and I just now am able to FINALLY take the bus and take care of my daughter on my own. Out of this experience, I have learned many lessons and I will say this Every woman’s journey is an individual one, and no mother can possibly tell another mom what is best for her. In my case, I learned that I was out of balance in my desperate attempt to have the balance that I thought I was supposed to have as a working mom. I will be a working mom again soon but I will do it differently this time. Because now, I have learned what balance really means, and it isn’t put my foot on the gas and go, go, go like I used to think. I was the queen of pushing through with bootstraps in hand many of us working moms are. Be perfect at work Be a perfect mom I’m grateful that I learned a different way. And now, I can teach what I know to my daughter perhaps a way to make her learning lessons a little easier in the future.But again, everyone’s journey is their own this is just mine.VA:F [1.9.13_1145]please wait…(1 vote cast)
