“JUST a Mom?” “Oh, you don’t work?” If one more person would’ve said those phrases- I might seriously go all Italian on them!
Going from a high-profile, public career as an anchor and reporter to having 3 babies within 21 months-(yes, a set of twins in that mix)-to caring for 3 infants was, let’s just say, the MOST difficult thing I’ve ever done. And then the proverbial: “Oh, you just stay at home?” “You don’t work?” Let me be perfectly clear: ALL MOMS WORK. It’s the EMPOWERED part that matters.
But I was lost. I ‘was’ an anchor. I ‘was’ a reporter. I ‘was’ a journalist. Then we are told, ‘you’re just a mom’.
And then we’re made to feel ‘less than’, ‘not enough’ and not valued.
For me, I had to lose my identity and the result: I found myself.
That’s when I had my next baby: that’s when THE EMPOWERED MOM was born. I started my business on a wing and a prayer and the realization that EMPOWERING myself means empowering my babies and making a difference in the world.
We aren’t JUST MOMS – we are EMPOWERED, we are HARD-WORKING and most importantly, we are RAISING EMPOWERED Children. Generation EMPOWERED.
It is true. JUST a MOM? Mom is EVERYTHING.
And I must say I about fell on the floor when Zig Ziglar followed my comments by saying this:
Remember YOU are ENOUGH. YOU are IMPORTANT. You MATTER. And you, Mom, are raising the next generation of EMPOWERED, precious souls.
Go Empower Yourself today.
