I can’t tell you to stop feeling it. It’s universal.
Every mom has guilt creeping into her awareness. And sometimes she even feels guilty about feeling guilty!
And even when we don’t notice our mom guilt, it’s actually still there, running silently in the background like an open program on the computer.
Whether you’re parenting full time, part-time, or solo, grandparenting, running a business, working at home, or caregiving in any way, we’ve all experienced it.
Juggling work and home with kids is challenging at the best of times. The current pandemic has added a whole new layer of stress—and more guilt—to the mix.
No one can do it all.
This is why I met up with my friend Virginia Vince. She’s a seasoned entrepreneur, owner of the highly successful Bloomfields Flowers, and mom of three boys. As a master juggler she makes it look easy, but she’s gone through tough times too.
She’s the kind of person who sees other moms and accepts them for where they’re at—without a drop of judgement.
God bless Virgina!
Virginia shares her experience on how to name mom guilt for what it is, reminding us of the positives that come from juggling parenting and work.
Part of her superpower is her ability to stay calm while walking through the fire.
One of the reasons I wanted to share this beautiful human with you is so you could tune in to her relaxed vibe and let her compassion sink in.
No drama. No adrenaline. Just love.
Many of you are working from home right now and juggling more than ever. I hope this caring conversation between friends will help ease some of the pressure of trying to do it all.
We’re all doing the best we can—which is more than enough.
What does “doing the best I can” mean to you right now? I’d love to hear from you, in the comments below.
