I was with a group of friends last night and I heard a number of stories, but one really stuck with me. Picture this, a working mother with two daughters – one four years old and the other seven weeks old. She shared about how she had pulled back and taken herself out the the game. What she meant by that is that she felt she no longer had the time, motivation, or power to challenge herself to do great things as she had pre-motherhood.
What impressed me the most was her deep self-reflection and commitment to go beyond her perceived limitations. A great lesson for my own life.
