You are more, you ARE a rockstar!
Over Memorial Day weekend I did something I think a lot of people in my life didn’t think I could do.
I traveled across the country by myself. I had a working vacation.
My vacation running a music stage for three days at a festival in Napa Valley.
I made sure the musicians got what they needed, got on and off the stage, all communication came through me. I knew one person. I had no car. It was a huge adventure.
The last trip I took my daughter was two and a half and was with my ex husband it was our five year anniversary trip to Jamaica. It was three months after we had started talking about splitting up.
Needless to say not a great trip.
After that my trips have been limited to family vacations. Work trips where there are always colleagues along. But nothing like this.
I think sometimes when you become a Mom people forget you are more than just a Mom.
It’s easy to assume because your life has changed maybe there are certain things you can’t handle.
People forget when you made the decision to leave you had to handle a whole lot.
That even now you handle a whole lot.
People sometimes assume because you don’t wear everything out on your sleeve, running around with rockstars is not something a Mom could do.
Some would say should do.
My biggest cheerleader was the one who got me the job. He has known me since I was in college. He has seen my ups and downs. He knows I’m not easily fazed. Also, as he put it since I work with children regularly and am a Mom this would be in my wheelhouse.
My point in all of this… you are more than the greatest job on the world. In fact because of that job let’s just be honest, you can handle a WHOLE lot.
Even a DJ’s assistant getting crabby because a band who had been going nonstop didn’t autograph a poster.
Or your daughter kicking you out of the bathroom mid hair dry.
You a superstars.
Let’s call it- you’re rockstars!
Much love Mommas
