The successful mom…I left my job but I consider myself successful

The majority of prosperous people claim that starting a business or developing a successful career requires a full-time commitment. However, there are a lot of women working in business today who are juggling both their family and their careers. As if that weren’t difficult enough, they also have to deal with competition, criticism, self-doubt, and guilt related to their roles as mothers and businesswomen. Most people would see being a single mother as adding to the risk of burnout or long-term struggle. But what if adjusting your perspective and viewing your situation from a different angle is all it takes to make the difference between struggling and thriving? I am well aware of the difficulties that can arise from being a single parent raising a lovely child, running my own business, and contributing to the management of a family business. I used to buy into everyone’s projections of what it meant to be a single working mother after leaving a toxic relationship and having more on my plate than I could handle (or so I thought at the time). But everything changed for me when I began to view things from a different angle. Now that what I once perceived as a challenge is met with gratitude and ease, I am at ease in handling anything that comes my way. An advantage, an opportunity to accomplish even more, or a source of inspiration from which to draw strength can be seen in what some may perceive as a disadvantage or a challenging situation that needs to be overcome.
