Why This is a Great Balancing Act

working mom, single, job, balancing actA job for someone can be a chore. A job for another can be a mission in life. A job for me is a great balancing act between being a wife, a mother, and a good employee, or if you’re divorced, a single mom raising children, shuffling between doctor’s appointments, extracurricular activities, evening work events, homework, etc. This list is endless.

As a working mom and publicist, my job has kept me grounded. During challenging times in my life, I could always count on a colleague of mine to understand what I was experiencing and give advice to just keep my head above water. It also helped when I asked to get mundane tasks from her so I wouldn’t have to think when I couldn’t focus on important accounts. My life was unraveling before me, fast.

Guiding Lesson: There are pearls of wisdom in the moment. Open your eyes, your heart, and your life to the now. You will discover the graces and blessings in your work, the people around you, and the strength you will need.
