Tip for Other Working Moms: Don’t be so hard on yourself, no one is super mom and it’s completely acceptable to take time out for yourself. Also, one of my favorite quotes, which is fitting for this blog is: “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” Christopher Robin to Pooh.
