Juggling between work and family isn’t easy. As a working mother, I am constantly looking for ways to multitask. I want to get ahead at work, but also pick up my girls from school; I want to be at the morning meeting, but also sit down for breakfast with my family. It is a constant struggle that I believe isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
As always, I am late to the party, but last Friday, Serena Williams spoke on this matter. In an emotional Instagram post, the 23 major singles titles winner opened up about being a working mom, stating: “working and being a mom is not easy.”
Being a working mom is a constant struggle. There is a comfort in knowing that even those who seem to lack nothing, have to go through it. I want to thank Serena Williams for giving us a look into her life, without filters. Thank you for showing that everyone goes through it. Thank you for raising awareness.
