So, I realized that I need to change my language and mindsets about being mom. When I thought about my everyday work as a mom, I realized all the transferable skills moms have!
And here is what I realized:
So to hell with this “just” a mom stuff! We are highly skilled and qualified. We are MOMs! And, we have the skills and abilities to evaluate the situation, determine appropriate outcome, and stand our ground. (insert ROAR here!)
Place incredible and often unrealistic demands on us multiple times a day.
And, we know how to prioritize, delegate, assess, and produce successful outcomes.
Procrastinate, ignore requests, and rebel.
And we are capable of getting their attention, redirecting negative energy, and encourage them to accomplish tasks.
Have a hard time focusing to acheive their goals.
And we motivate and provide call-to-action incentives that encourage their success.
Continually ask more and more of us.
And we persist.
