Really interesting article in Fortune magazine addressing the sad fact that often a working women’s strongest critics are often other women.
For eight years, I worked as a full-time litigation attorney at a medium sized law firm in downtown Fort Worth while raising my three small children. It felt like a disaster. Every day I felt like the obligations of my existence were busting at the seams as I tried unsuccessfully to balance the demands of being an attorney, a wife, and a mother. About two years ago, I left firm-life for what I thought would be a utopian existence of being a full-time mother and a part-time attorney. My image of paradise was almost immediately shattered by reality. Instead, I found myself juggling the demands of being a full-time mother and a part-time attorney.
Just realized I have been wearing one navy and one black shoe all day long, including to a new client meeting. Awesome. I totally blame the kids in the picture even though I can't rationalize how they are at fault. Happy Friday!
