Getting Real With Tiana Green
Moms make great employees. As natural multi-taskers, we can get a lot done in a small amount of time. We are reliable and can remain focused on the task, getting things accomplished quickly and efficiently amidst complete chaos.
Moms are used to juggling many different jobs and playing many roles. We work full time, part time, in the house, out of the house, do laundry and dishes, provide taxi service and house cleaning, provide medical care, cut hair, and do just about anything else that comes our way (often without too much complaining)!
Honestly, there were definitely times when I went to work and it was actually a relief! My “real” job was much less stressful than the jobs that I had to do at home!
It is kind of ironic, really, when I was working full time and really had to stay on top of things, it almost seemed easier to be organized and I was able to accomplish a lot!
It is important to find a balance between work and motherhood, while still squeezing in some time to be a woman. For some women it is important to have a job outside of the work at home with the house and kids. For others, it is just as important to be able to be home and focus solely on the family and children.
What is most important is figuring out the best balance for you. Each woman is different and there are many options available. As women, we need to understand that the definition of that balance is different for each woman, and support each other’s choices rather than judge them.
We need to be supportive of each other, regardless of what that balance means to each individual. That is part of what is so awesome about our lives as moms and women: we have the power to choose and make the best decision to fit our own families and lives.
