Today was pretty rough – my lovely baby didn’t want to sleep or play or do anything that wouldn’t require my attention. So I didn’t manage to do anything (no blogging, no promoting, no nothing). I shared my frustration with a family member (no names, sorry) and the response was: “well, what are we going to do now!”. Yes, I got the sarcasm, the world isn’t going to fall apart, we are not going to go hungry and no major or minor inconvenience will manifest as a result of my non-work.
But there is something deep inside me that needs recognition. I’m a mom. I don’t work. I used to work – climb up the corporate ladder, wear the suits and go to the fancy corporate dinners. I used to work from 9 to 7 and spend the weekends with my colleagues. I don’t miss it. But when you go from corporate life to motherhood, when you go from “me, me, me!” to “baby, baby, baby”, there’s something that goes out of balance.
You need to find a new equilibrium. I try to find mine by writing, blogging, promoting and selling my stuff. So if you like my writing – please buy a book or two – they really are pretty damn good! (Consult the books on your right hand side).
I know there are a few posts here that I protected – these are for family and friends. Don’t worry, there’s nothing particularly interesting there – just some pics and videos of my little poop machine.
The really good stuff is right in front of your eyes. And I know there are some really amazing blogs in the blogosphere. I read them and I benchmark. I try to excel at what I’m doing.
I definitely can’t complain: I’ve got a marvelous husband, baby and life. It’s just that it would be really really nice if I got some kind of recognition. If you want to help – grab one of my books and please vote for me by clicking the banner below.
