Share the load

By May 18, 2017Updates
I see you. You are amazing. There is no job title for what you do – because so often you do it all.

You’re a chauffer. A chef. A councillor. A nurse. A personal assistant. A house keeper. A waitress, An advisor. An accountant and the list goes on. Maybe you’re a Mum. Or a career woman. Or both. Maybe you’re a daughter. A wife. A partner. Maybe, you’re all of these things and strive do it all.

I see you for you. The person behind the title; juggling roles, trying to be everything to everyone but sometimes forgetting about who you are and what you need to be you.

I see it all.  The expectations you set for yourself and the pressure to achieve it all.

On the good days, I see the wins and with that, the sense of accomplishment, the drive, the feeling of success when everything falls into place. On the days when you are tired and the weight of the world feels like it is nestled on your shoulders; I see that too. You hide it well, becuase that’s what we do. But I know you.  I see through the smiles to the tired eyes. I hear the chats; the reflections on the week with the wins and the struggles and know that the laughs and shared stories are your first step to lightening the load.

We are the same. We might have different jobs and be surrounded by different networks of people day to day. We might have different responsibilities and different people we care for, but essentially; WE are the same.  So, it’s time to come together, support each other and drop the super hero cape with the realisation that we don’t have to be everything to everyone. We just have to be the best version of ourselves we can be, in order to do the best for those around us.

Remember on those days when you feel like you are everyone elses ‘something’… you are still you.

Get back to that person. Stop comparing, judging and juggling. Instead, surround yourself with people who will lift you higher, who will share the load, ask how YOU are and offer a helping hand when they see you need it most. Then take it.

Share the load because you don’t have to do it all by yourself.

You’ve got this girls… go forth and conquer!
