One very unique obstacle I’m facing right now is returning to (now remote) work as a new mom with limited access to childcare in the midst of this global pandemic.
I’m trying to balance showing my team that I’m indeed a mom with an infant at home with showing them that I’m capable of doing the work needed for the role. That means sometimes I join a zoom meeting with my son strapped to my chest, using his changing table as a standing desk. And then immediately doubt myself and wonder how it was perceived by others on the line.
So, I’m working on that balance, which I think will come from giving myself a lot of grace during this time, too.
There’s so much more to the story…
