Mum's the word
Updated: Mar 16
As an (almost) 30 year old women, I can't help but think about my life and what I have accomplished. Building myself a successful career, saying screw it to my own insecurities and starting my own business, meeting my husband (the co) and having a beautiful marriage - to name a few. My mind can't help but wonder what's ahead for me, more specifically to being a mum. When I think how hard it was for me to start mo + co, I think of all the fear and doubt that came with that. Thinks like ''Will anybody even like my stuff" and "There are so much more talented and experienced people out there". The same thoughts and emotions came with me wanting to grow my little family. Thoughts that consisted of "How am I going to support having a baby living in Auckland", and "Will I have to start again in my career". Thoughts that were overwhelming and stressful. Thoughts that were an absolute waste of my time and energy.
See, when I thought about it more, I came to realise that I wasn't the only person in the world going through this stuff. Because as I started to look around me, through listening to other working mums like Revie Jane on instagram, watching my sister raise three beautiful children, and all my amazing friends who successfully balanced being a mum, run a business, and work their career - I realised that I could do it too.
So this goes to all the mama's out there - holding it down for their families, working a 9-5 job, building their own successful business. Keep doing you boo! You're my inspiration.
