So who suffers from the dreaded mum guilt?
We all know about it.
We all suffer from mum guilt in some respect, some more than others, and some days are worse than others.
The list goes on…
I go through days of being riddled with it and then others were I am fuck it I am doing my best, and that’s good enough.
During the lockdown, I have been up and down like a bloody rollercoaster as I am sure a lot of you are. This week, in particular, is worse, and it wasn’t till last night it clicked…. My son is 8 this week. And, for those that know me, know that as much as my sons birthday is a huge celebration (birthdays are a big deal in our house as it is the only true day you get for yourself) it is also a huge trigger for me. This is because my son and I very nearly didn’t make it through childbirth and I contracted sepsis… And quite frankly it was a really shit time (more mum guilt – I have worked hard on this trauma over the last few years).
I have been the shouty mum, the irritated mum, the crying mum, the mum where every little thing drives me bonkers. I have hidden in the pantry stuffing my face with chocolate and other sugary snacks.
I am incredibly grateful as I run my own business and I can take time when I need to. I can adapt my working schedule to be there when my children need me, but that said I am human, I have struggles, mummy struggles and work struggles. The mum guilt is real!
But needing true flexibility was one of the reasons I started my business so that I was not working to someone else schedule. Don’t get me wrong I could never have known that what is happening now was going to happen. But, I am grateful that I have my own business and that I can choose to work when its the right time of day for me especially with the children being at home daily at the moment.
I cannot imagine what it would be like to those that are working for someone else and having to work set hours, hats off to you mums as that is truly amazing, and to me you are superwoman.
But have you ever thought what it would be like to work for yourself, to run your own business?
If you are sitting there in your home office or at your kitchen table and dream of working for yourself and what that would look like for you and your family, but have no idea where to start or how to start, then have you ever thought about the possibility of a franchise?
We have a fantastic model which I created, purposefully to work around my family, meaning it is truly family-friendly and flexible because I made it that way and have spent the last 3 years perfecting it!
So that I could be in the position to share this with you.
