Nothing had me chasing impossible standards more than motherhood

Keywords: {0}

Because when you put the quiet expectation on yourself as a mother to never fall or fail them, to never show when you’re scared and never feel angry – then somewhere along the way you’ve stopped acknowledging God and decided you can be a good enough god to the people you love instead. We may never say it that way, but the exhausting way I was living and striving exposed me. I expected myself to always be able to love and care and be everything for Nicole perfectly.

People advertise Wins more than Failures

Keywords: journey , small wins , success , wins

We only see Wins around us because few talk about failures the trials and errors because such things aren’t sexy, at least not until you have turned them into a Win. The consistent effort to achieve your goal is not talked about because mundane isn’t glorified. Nobody talks about the umpteenth failures, falling down getting up to make that Win in the nth trial. All we see is the end product, the Win.

It’s taken a lot of work to cultivate this mindset, and it’s not a linear journey

Sometimes it’s tough, and I wonder what I’m doing most days. I also don’t trivialise the very real struggles that the job market and economy can present at the moment; this is a reflection on how missing opportunities has helped me to build stronger going forward.
