Life, as I have been discovering, can be such a huge range of emotions. In one month you can feel elated, sad, angry, disappointed, lonely, happy and miserable. Sometimes you can feel all those things in just one day. I have recently turned 30 and felt myself go through what felt like a complete melt down. Why was I born? What is the point in life? What is my purpose in life? What have I achieved? I’m 30, married with 2 children, working part time as an Admin and in my mind that was all nothing to be proud of. It’s crazy the pressure that we put on ourselves. I was a stay at home mum for 10 years and when people asked what I did I said ‘I’m JUST a stay at home mum’ then I started back at work and when people ask the same question I say ‘ I’m JUST an office administrator’. What is it that will make me more then a JUST? Why is it that no matter what I do I lower who I am? Being a mum is something to be proud of and being a stay at home is something to be admired. It’s not an easy job and it’s not glamorous but it’s a beautiful thing that some women and society seem to not acknowledge you as a person because of it. The title should be changed to manger of the house hold instead of stay at home mum.
Stay at home mums you are a strong pillar in society and without you communities and schools would crumble. Be proud of who you are and be proud of what you have achieved because you have an extremely important job. And to the working mothers out there never feel guilty for having a career for guilt will bring you down and make life impossible to live. Your children will not love you any less and think that you love them less because you are at work. All mothers be proud of who you are no matter what other people say. Hopefully sometime soon I will listen to my own advice
