You women had momentum. You were shining. You were in the flow.
(Or, you were at least closer to these things than you are now!)
Like so many women, you had an incredibly dynamic life before the pandemic hit. You had a career that fulfilled your mental space, you had happy kids who went to school and socialized with their friends on a daily basis. You also had a somewhat-thriving social calendar (or maybe even an overly-thriving calendar!). There have even been times that you let it all go and took time out for yourself to meditate, read or pursue another hobby!
Then, the global pause swept the planet.
Suddenly, you were responsible for project managing all of your kid’s homework and emotions, in addition to the increase in home tasks, such as 100% more cooking and cleaning.
Kids were home from school.
You had to throw together an office space under a set of stairs and work in 5-minute increments as you supported the kids with zoom breakdowns.
All the plates you were already having a hard time spinning came crashing down in March of 2020.
