My New Beginnings!

By Kelly Ekardt 3 years ago 2436 Views No comments

As Spring is just around the corner, we thought it appropriate here at Sense Organics to talk about new beginnings. Spring brings new life, fresh air, warm sun and the feeling of excitement for what's to come. This year my husband and I both started new jobs. It was something that really needed to happen as we were both feeling quite stuck and down and out about our then situation. Now that we have new jobs things are starting to look up. But with new beginnings, comes new adjustments and learning how to juggle many tasks at once. I work for a women's wear agency called Foundation. We represent sustainable and fair-trade brands. Along with our women's wear brand we look after Sense Organics, well I oversea Sense Organics, which I love! I really really enjoy my job, it's allowing me more time with Edith then my last full-time job, which to be honest was just too much for me, working 5 days a week, 40 hours, it was killing me. I know this is normal for a lot of women out there but I was an Assistant Manager at a very busy retail boutique and it was not very family focused. Now I work 4 days a week and get a Fridays all to myself with my little one, Edith. Being a working mom is rewarding but also challenging. There are many days I feel like I'm just not getting it right. I feel pulled in many directions, but this is when I have to take a step back and remind myself that I am not SUPERWOMAN and allow myself some slack. I think women today feel like we have to be these super humans and live this ultra perfect lives. Yes there are woman out there that have the perfect job, perfect house, perfect four kids, perfect look, etc, well so we think it's perfect and they somehow have the secret formula to balancing everything out perfectly. Well, let me tell you I am not this woman! Do I aspire to be all that I can be, of course, and I think that's all we can do as woman, mothers, partners, etc. For those of you out there starting a new job or starting the exciting adventure of becoming a new mom or moving house or whatever it is that is a new adventure for you, take on this newness with confidence, joy and forgiveness for what you may not get done with your busy schedule. We just have to support each other and offer encouragement to those woman around us! To new and exciting things! And to warmer days! Kelly xx
