Born in the 60s, the era of feminism and burning of bras. Some of our mothers are those women who fought for independence and gave women the right become whomever they chose to be. Not entirely a bad thing considering women were shackled to their men back in the day and their voices largely unheard. Coming from such stock, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the children of such women would go on to become career women, entrepreneurs and even moguls of large empires! Who said women can’t have it all? Or can they?
Getting to the top may mean sacrificing a few things along the way e.g. a social life, a husband or partner, children, family. Some may ask the burning question: ‘Is it worth the sacrifice?’ For some, the answer may be a resounding ‘Yes’, Some ‘No’ and others ‘Maybe’. My view, is that at every point in one’s life, sacrifices need to be made. In the earlier years, it may be family; in the latter years, it may be career but in the end, everyone needs someone to come home to, to love and be loved.
