In the words of Sheryl Sandberg, we need to “lean in,” right? As women, business owners, moms, we can have it all! That's at least what we keep telling ourselves as we try harder and harder to hold it all together and keep all our balls in the air.
But maybe we can't. And maybe that's ok.
A few years ago, my gift to myself was letting go of the things that weren't making me happy. Even if they were normal expectations for most, I discovered I didn't have to do them. That was the magic of being an adult.
Now, of course, there are things I don't like that NEED to be done. I'm looking at you, dirty dishes. But that's where accepting help comes in.
It was some time after the birth of my second child that I had a heart to heart with my husband about where I needed help. And you know what, he stepped up. Suddenly I felt like I could take a deep breath again.
No one has all the answers. But together we can be the puzzle pieces that fit. We just have to accept help when and where it is offered whether that is in the home, our careers, or with our kids.
So how can I help you?
