Explaining to my six-year-old son that mommy has a different kind of work, one where she needs to work a lot so she can provide for him and her is far from easy.
Having a stable and secure income allows perhaps for more flexibility and options, but it was no longer an option for me.
I work more often now and I am on the go a lot.
Still, I feel free and fulfilled.
I feel happy and serene.
I feel capable of loving you with all my heart and of being fully present when I hold you in my arms.
