Million Dollar Question: Can women have it all?
Society seems to tell us we should be beautiful, fit, well-educated, successful in a career, in a happy marriage, with 2.5 kids, a thriving social life, and a vacation home. People think it should all unfold on the perfect timeline too.I believe some women can have it all-- but not necessarily all at the same time!
Last week, I sat down with my lovely matchmaking colleague, Julia Bendis, and attempted to answer this question on this episode of her “Someone Had To Say It” podcast. I opened up about my decision to become a mom without a partner. I talked about all the details of how I became pregnant this past March, how Covid factored into it all, my advice for women-with a ticking clock-who currently want children but aren't in a relationship. I've done many podcast interviews throughout the years, but this was my most personal yet; it was such a pleasure to speak with Julia--a matchmaker who truly "gets" it!
Its been so rewarding to share my solo mother story, and so many people have reached out with love and support--and to let me know that my participation in the Solo Mother Instagram Challenge has inspired them!
If you’d like to learn more about my journey, you can check out my daily Instagram posts since July 1rst or read my recent feature in this Yahoo Live article about the benefits of solo motherhood.
That’s all for now.
