Are you a mom who also believes in dreaming your own dreams and pushing for them even as you do what you want to for your kids? Then write for our #MomAndMore blogathon for Mother’s Day 2019.
What happens then in a social milieu like ours that anyway tells a woman that she is not important enough? That her dreams are secondary? That everything else comes first, and maybe after everything is taken care of, can she dare to dream for herself? What happens once she becomes a mom?
Yes, you got it right. The mom wins, almost always.
But the badass woman of today doesn’t have to put herself last – maybe she can do both? Being a mom AND being herself? Finding a place for her dreams too, and going after them, without attempting to be the ‘superwoman’ society wants her to be? Do you believe in being #MomAndMore?
Are you one of them? A woman living for your dreams as much as the mom you want to be for your kids? Go ahead and tell us your story, then. We’d love to know, this Mother’s Day.
