Doing you.. .

Do you ever find yourself comparing yourself to what you see others potraying on social media? Like how they always seems to have it all together?

Well the truth is most of us will always put our best foot forward, like posting the best pics only with our make up perfectly done, kids behaving and smiling for the camera and the house neat with all toys packed neatly in their place.

What you will not see are the days when the eyes are sleep deprived because one child was unwell for most of the night, or the untidy house because the maid had an emergency and could not show up and not forgetting the late night in preparation for the make or break presentation at work.

Today I just wanted to remind you that comparing yourself to what you see others potraying on social media steals your joy. Do you and remember that what you see others potraying is actually not the whole story.

Yours truly

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. The girl who introduced me the "mother" title is 8 years ol and our twins are five years, 6 months. 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.
