Here’s the Power Seat’s challenge:
“I am a serial entrepreneur. I love to work.
I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but was surprised when I got pregnant.
I now have a 2.5 year old at home.
I struggle because I don’t have an idea of what I want ‘being a mom’ to look like.
I am on an adventure figuring out my roles, mom, wife, and all my other roles, etc…
My son just started to go to day care and I love it. It gives me some freedom.
I struggle with being a good mom, being myself, chasing my dreams, being a good wife.
I want to be there unconditionally, but can’t do it if I am with him every single day.
I feel really torn inside every day.
I haven’t defined what it means to be a mom.
It’s a tender spot inside because I haven’t figured out and some days it’s scary.
I am having a tough time finding the balance of being a mom and my work.
I love what I do and I truly feel like I’m trying to save the world at work.
Balancing the two is a real struggle.
I have a lot of expectations. I put a lot on my mom and step-mom growing up.
I have a big fear if my child has the same expectations and how do I deliver.
I have never thought I’d be a stay at home mom, never crossed her mind.
I have a lot of expectations of others and now I’m afraid he’ll have those expectations of me.
HOW DO I define what I want being a mom to look like for me?
I don’t know where to start.
I am worried I have to give up myself to define what I do and don’t want 'being a mom' to look like."
Tune into the Episode 6, to hear how other women have navigated similar experiences, from which we all get to choose what resonates and what we want to be intentional about doing differently moving forward.
