Balancing Caregiving & Career: What I Learned from a Year of Working & Caregiving During a Pandemic
I am a Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Friend, Teacher, Volunteer, Employee and Manager. I feel happy, exhausted, excited, angry, inspired, frustrated, empathetic and grateful. There are days when I bounce between or merge these roles that lead me to success and other days when I feel as though I struggled to find any success.
Vacillating in this way is not something I have easily embraced as I have always committed to giving 100% in every aspect of my life. Yet I have learned in the last year that it is completely reasonable and acceptable to not provide 100% of yourself to everyone or every project every day. And I am now totally okay with it.
