“Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land-up amongst the stars.”
Women of the 1900’s gave us much to aspire for, almost causing a metamorphosis in the way we viewed our ambitions. It became a birth-right, rather than unconventional. From Indira Gandhi’s ferocious reign over India, to Queen Elizabeth’s ascetic rule over the throne, to Mother Teresa’s gentle ways, we got see the many facets of successful women.
So then the eager, unchaste and rebellious women of the millennium, decided to take their career ambitions a step-ahead, but also a step-back and include the joys of motherhood and domestication. When a bird is given the chance to flee the nest, it always flies back because the warmth and protection of a home and family is encouraging. So, as much as we women love to conquer new feats in our careers, we love coming-back home to the familiarity and love of a home and family. We make sure that the dinners on the table are as crisp and well turned-out as the products at work, and this balance makes us feel invincible. It’s a high like no other.
However, the struggles to create that balance often begins with the change in mindset. So, rather than being all feminist about it, and tipping the scales to a one-sided bias, let us accept and give credit to the those fathers, husbands, partners , uncles and brothers that sowed these seeds of aspirations and acceptance into former-patriarchal societies. Let’s not make it a power-struggle and give importance to each other towards our success.
This work-life balance, and all the sha-bang that is attached to it, is an accumulation of hardwork, meticulous planning, open-mindedness towards criticism and accepting eminent changes in life, to become better, more resilient and more fabulous version of ourselves.
