I’m laughing as I write this post, since I am pushing through some crazy stuff to get it done. I’ve been a little absent lately thanks to some great things that have been occupying the space of my prioirities. One of these priorities is standing on the chair I’m sitting in, hanging onto my head, and jumping and dancing to Raffi’s “Shake My Sillies Out” as I grip the computer for dear life, continually hitting the backspace key to correct all the typos and try not to get knocked off the chair.
So I’m singing Raffi, entertaining (lamely) my two-year-old daughter, and writing. This is the life of a mom entrepreneur that I love!
Getting it all done, juggling the various roles and responsibilities I’ve signed up for, balancing between the worlds of mother and coach/business owner… These phrases are loaded with energy, often negative energy, since lots of times we tend to focus on what we aren’t doing versus what we are doing.
I’m giving myself a break. This blog post may not be the most riveting or life-changing one I’ll ever write, and my humming along with Raffi is not the prettiest, and there are lots of better ways to entertain my babes during family time, and there are lots of things I could be doing for my business right now, and the godforsaken laundry is still there, right outside my office door, looking at me…
But I don’t care. I’m doing what I can. I’m doing it right now. I’m laughing at the juxtaposition of my littlest now singing “Shake Your Booty” while I try to compose meaningful thoughts.
This, for me, is having it all. There will be more time for babes and more time for business as my children grow up and my business grows. Both will go through stages that require more or less of me, and I’ll adjust my schedule accordingly.
My other big priority is an interview tonight with Angela Jia Kim on www.savorthesuccess.com. I’ll be sharing more on how we mom business owners straddle the two worlds we live in, and some tips for making it all work for us. Please consider joining in!
