Still was a rockstar at work, till she became a Mother..
So she became a Mother! Yes, she left her handsome salary package behind. Cause ‘Aspirations’ do change for a Mother! It is like you are driving a car at high speed. In control and with all the focus. Now you have to suddenly change your course. Cause a baby is on its way!
It is difficult! Letting go of the professional identity you’ve built all these years. Accepting that your pace needs to slow down now. Making way for others to run past you as you sit at the side and watch them.
Once you become a Mother, somethings change inside you. Every decision has a baby attribute added to it. You become an advocate of a healthy work life balance. You start pondering over the impossibles. Hoping to re construct your life around your tiny baby.
1. You prefer a cuddle at home over an after office party.
2. You love your everyday struggles of building a new career than a hectic lifestyle of a well established job.
3. You chose to earn more in terms of time spent with your kid than money.
Of believing in the impossibles. Confidence and determination of giving a new direction to your career, at your own terms. So eventually what you let go off looks small in comparison with what you gain, mommying!
So tell me! How did your aspirations change post motherhood? What is your story?
