My biggest challenge is figuring out how to navigate my business, my daughters, and my family who all equally need me as much as the other. It’s this feeling of 'immediacy' in all things that underpins me, when all entities need me RIGHT NOW, and some days are harder than others.
My husband also needs me, and I try to remember that I need me too. I’m an introvert, so I crave solitude, which makes it a challenge trying to be at ease with the demands of growing a family and simultaneously growing a business that I am so passionate about.
Naturally, my daughters are my top priority and preference, but that doesn’t stop the growing to-do lists in my work. And it’s in these moments, when push comes to shove, and I miss an important milestone for one of my daughters that I really feel it.
And then I feel the challenge of chasing my dreams, with missing of important milestones and I start to feel a little anxious about both.About the worry of missing out on both.
Not to be misunderstood, I feel incredibly blessed to have both.I realise it is a position of privilege, but I am still navigating how to “balance” both. And that is the great challenge, finding what balance looks like.
