🗝️ The Truth 🗝️
Here's me keeping it real. Life is simple it is us who complicate it.
I come from a middle class family and I don't have a fancy lifestyle. I live with my husband, girls and in-laws in a tiny little home. With two girls and tons of financial pressure, it's difficult to lead an easy life. My journey on Instagram started a year ago and like most mum's I started to pen down this journey called 'Motherhood'. I wont deny, in order to make ends meet, I got into collaborations and it gave me a kick. Like a fellow blogger mentioned, 'Youre either here to influence or to earn' and she wasn't wrong. With time, responsibilities increased. Priorities changed and my life started revolving around the social media bubble. Instead of living the moment, I was constantly worried and was wanting pictures to be Insta Perfect. The world saw the life I portrayed which was faaaaar away from reality. I was constantly on my cell phone, capturing Instagram perfect moments. The drawback, the girls suffered. Mr. Hubster complained as I checked my phone more often than him. The turning point was when Twisha went, ' No Mimmee. No phone.' Giving me a dirty look. That's when i decided to take a step back and support Mum's who are here to blog.
Am I quitting a 'Bloggers Life'? Not really. For those wondering where did I disappear. I am right here, juggling between work and girls and life. It's difficult being a Mom to two girls and getting back to work. The pressure is enormous but it keeps you mentally charged up. Have I made a sucessful move to WORKING MOM title? Not really, I do cry daily as I bid goodbye to the girls with the promise of coming home early. Honestly, it's a huge transition with us and yes, it is depressing. Still figuring out ways to cope with it. Working Mums, please help me out here.
