It goes without saying that being a mum is one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs. Not a day goes by where we are not grateful for all the hard work and sacrifices that mums across the world make for their families.
As a mum you are constantly keeping the house free from never-ending mountains of washing, somehow keeping the fridge stocked and the house as clean as possible.
Let’s face it, no one prepares you for becoming a mum. Once your little one arrives, everything changes. You’re less able to go out and do the things you used to. After a year or sometimes earlier, you’re faced with the conundrum as to whether to return to work.
With the need for an income into the household, it’s a necessity for many and equally a choice for others, as to how many days and which hours are worked. Here is where the juggling begins. The juggle that means you now wear even more hats than before.Once back at work, you need to juggle all competing demands that everyone else faces on a daily basis. The added element of being a mum and the pull on your time should not be underestimated. Mums often feel torn between trying to keep everyone happy and how things will be perceived by their employer when their little ones are too ill to attend nursery, but most of all by wanting to be the best mum you can be.
The thing that everyone forgets, mums included, is that they are already doing an amazing job. Their children will grow up knowing that it’s important to work hard to get to where they want in life. That anything is possible if you set your mind to it and take consistent action to get there.
Our future generations are seeing role models of strong women, who are caregivers and career driven at the same time and successfully juggling all the demands placed on them.
This Sunday is a special chance to say “THANKYOU MUM” and “WE LOVE YOU!”. Here’s to all of the mums out there. May we humbly say that you’re simply the #BESTMUMEVER. Thank you all for everything you do every day!
