I have been tagged by Briana’s Mom.
Here is the task…….describe your life in only 6 words…………I know what you are thinking…..how is someone so chatty going to use only 6 words to describe themselves?
Let me tell you…it is not easy, but after much thought this is what I came up with…….
“Juggling: Motherhood & Climbing the Corporate Ladder”
OK…..I cheated a little, if you count the “&” as a word…..but this was the best that I could do!
You see that woman up there in the corner….that is me…..I feel that I am always juggling…..I need to be a great Mommy and wife, a successful business woman, a wonderful cook, a fabulous friend, and keep our house as clean as a model home.
Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? I know I am not the only one who handles this kind of juggling act……we all do these things, but I have a Type A personality. Everything that I do has to be done with perfection…I have a tendency to be a people pleaser….take on more than I should……and have a twinge of OCD when it comes to my home.
There are never enough hours in the day…..sometimes I feel stretched and at times the stress of my job is taken out on my family.
I do have a wonderful job, so I shouldn’t be complaining….I have worked for this company for 5 years and have a lot of flexibility in my days which allows me to jump into Mommy mode at the drop of a hat! I don’t punch a clock, and you would think since I worked from home, I would be micro-managed….NOT. I honestly have a dream job, but here is the part that makes me a little nuts…..I am running the show when it comes to Sales and Marketing for our company and have had a record breaking 2 years and now feel some pressure to keep going at the current pace…..not to mention that I am the only woman working in a predominantly male industry. I absolutely love my job and what I do, and love that I am able to work and still be a mom, but there are days that it is a real balancing act!
So now, I am going to leave you with these 6 words:
“So Blessed To Have This Life”
Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for the life I have…..there are so many horrible things in this world in which we live. I was given a second chance at life, I was given a second chance at love. We were blessed with the miracle of two children, we have an incredible circle of family and friends and we have a wonderful place to call our home.
Now if you made it through all of that, I need to tag 5 more people and I am going to pick people that I have never tagged before:
Sandra at The Daily Grind
Shelly at The Leonard Family
Janet at A Joyful Life
Alyson and Ford at Imagine Alyzabeth An…
Headmeister at Digging a Hole to China
Here are the rules…….. you need to describe your life in 6 words, link back to me, and then tag another 5 people. Leave them a comment to let them know they are tagged.
