Not only does our body change, our mind slowly change too. One of the biggest challenges in becoming a mom is that we lose sight of ourselves and who we are. Our “branding”. Sometimes a shift happens and we completely change careers or lifestyles after having children. Being in the right career is so vital especially when you look at how much time is spent at work. According to the Atlantic, 43% of moms leave their job after having children and much more change at least their role in some way or another.
With 90% of moms having to go back to work for financial reasons, it makes you wonder why employers are not paying more attention to the onboarding process once you are back at work.
- So have you lost your branding? lost your Mojo?
- Not sure who you are anymore?
- Are you desperate to be more than JUST a mom?
How I Regained My Mom-Mojo
I had these feelings after having both of my children. I needed to learn how to say goodbye to the old carefree me and try to learn who the new me was. One of the biggest parts of this was figuring out that I wanted to work. Don’t get me wrong, being a stay-at-home mom is THE hardest and least rewarding job on the planet but I missed something. Something inside me was empty and I needed to fill it.
By spending LESS time with my kids I actually appreciated them more. It allowed me to be more present with them. I also found that I had become resentful because I was pushing those empty feelings away and once I was honest, it all just fell into place.
