HOW MUCH WILL YOU RISK FOR MOTHERHOOD?
Noah the Kid, my son, wanted freedom [he was 9 years old when he made this request], I gave him presence.
My bosses at the time wanted me to be in the office to pour their water, I wanted to be at the school gate when school finished @ 3pm twice a week to pick up my child.
They offered a 5 day week, 9:30 to 16:30, and called it a compromise.
I resigned on the spot.
"Though motherhood is the most important of all the professions, requiring more knowledge than any other department in human affairs, there was no attention given to preparation for this office." ~Elizabeth Cady
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a leader of the women's rights movement in the U.S. during the mid-to late-1800s. She was the main force behind the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, the first convention to be called for the sole purpose of discussing women's rights, and was the primary author of its Declaration of Sentiments. She was also active in other social reform activities, especially abolitionism.
❤️ Happy Mother’s Day beautiful humans.
Celebrating the Women who came before us, and those who will come after us, to set new precedents.
Thank you for leading the way.
To all the Mama’s out there who do what it takes to prioritise being present for our future leaders, without losing themselves in the process.
Thank you for saying YES to yourselves.
To the Mama’s who walk away from that which is not in alignment with what they desire for their careers, businesses and lives.
Thank you for having the courage to say NO!
To the Nurturer’s who make sacrifices, take risks, and stand for nothing less than doing what is required to create a world where Motherhood, self-actualisation, and the contribution to greater social impact are no longer an either or scenario!
Shout out to all the Mama’s integrating their purpose-driven soul work and Motherhood like absolute Queens!
YOU. CAN. HAVE. IT. ALL.
“A happy mother is a good mother, and if work makes you hum, your whole family sings along.” – Sharon Meers and Joanna Strober
