Having it all

Can we have it all? Motherhood, careers, family, friends, ‘me’ time, health, wealth and vacation time?


Yes because we all define these things differently and can therefore choose our own standard or expectation to which we want to aim.

Yes because having it all doesn’t mean doing it perfectly. Mistakes will happen. Poor choices might be made. So what? Who doesn’t make mistakes? We all know it is how you recover from error that counts.

Yes because all those things are available in life and no one is saying there is a pre-defined portion that is smaller for some women than for others.

Of course my life has sometimes seen poverty, illness and unemployment… to mention but a few. But those are the flipside of “all” and I’m willing to learn, embrace and try it again.
