No more toiling…

Tomorrow is the 31st of December 2017. It also happens to be our 10th wedding  anniversary. Such moments always make me reflect on the past. I celebrate my victories but i also look for learnings and see what i could have done better. I read somewhere (paraphrased) that success is a lousy teacher that seduces people into thinking they are invincible. 

So here is the one thing that really stood out for me that i will not be taking with me into the future…..toiling……. and not living in the moment. Let me put this into context. 

I am in general a very forward looking person. I believe in planning for the future. I believe that my  tommorow has to be better than today and i believe that i need to take the necessary steps to make this possible. I am so forward looking that sometimes i forget to live and enjoy the here and now.

As i was reflecting, i had too many examples of not living and enjoying the moment that  i have made up my mind that this is not something I would like to carry into the future. I will not stop planning for my future and working towards the future  i want, but i will also balance this a good dose of enjoying the here and now. 

A victorious 2018 to you…

Journey mercies 


Published by Mum in Stilettos

I started blogging when i became a mother. I was struggling to manage the demands of being a working mom and being present for my baby's key development milestones. Initially this was a rant about my experiences in the office and at home. Over the years it has evolved into an online support community for mothers who are growing their families as they grow their careers. I am a wife and mum to 3 amazing children. During the day I am have a job i love as marketer for a multinational FMCG company. When i get home, I have another equally rewarding job called being a mother. When everyone is tucked in bed, I find time to blog about my journey as a mum in stilettos and build this community for us working moms so we can thrive at home and at work.
