If you feel lonely, isolated and still not sure of where you “fit” in, especially since you’ve given up your career and now find yourself meandering through toward a different path – you are not alone.
If you have second-guessed yourself on a constant basis as well as your choices and the way you parent – you are not alone.

If you are a Work-Out-of-the-Home Mom and there are days you cry at your desk missing your babies – you are not alone.
If you wake up at the crack of dawn to ensure you get to work on time while wrangling your kids in a sheer panic to get them out the door as well – you are not alone.
If you have a brutal commute with no end in sight and you wonder how the hell you got here – you are not alone.
If you drop your kids off at day-care and think about the little time you will have with your kids while pondering the idea that there has to be an easier way to make this thing work – you are not alone.
If you fight with your husband as to who will take a day off from work because your kid is sick – you are not alone.
If you are a Work-at-Home-Mom and there are moments when you feel like there is absolutely no balance in your life – you are not alone.
If your laptop has landed in your kitchen and has since become your home office – you are not alone.
If you feel torn between trying to be the perfect mom while maintaining a job and doing both simultaneously and feel as though you are failing at both miserably – you are not alone.

If you don’t know when your real work day begins or ends and you still don’t know what the hell you are making for dinner each night – you are not alone.
*I am a mother and I have been all three of the above roles and I can tell you that not one of these jobs is easier than the other – they all present their own set of challenges because they all have the word MOM in the title.
And lately, I’ve been feeling so many of those things but you know what’s helping me?
This little ol’ blog.
Because it’s here, in this space, I am surrounded by a supportive community of women and mothers that remind me every single day – *I AM NOT ALONE.*
