Mompreneur Moments: All the hats I wear

I wear so many different hats everyday that my mind is always spinning.I was reminded of this today as I read my friend Shannon from Sweet Stellas blog post (check it out here) about her relaxing visit to the Fayez Spa here in London. As much as I'd love to say it inspired me to do something simular to pamper myself, it hasn't quite yet. Many times recently I've thought I needed to lose a few hats or put some of the work on my partners plate so I could focus so this was really worth looking at for me. What it did make me realize, however, is just how special the moments are when I can step back and only wear one hat at a time, or wear a new hat for something special. Last week kept me running and I had to wear the hats of  

  • Mom
  • Daughter
  • Sister
  • Girlfriend
  • Photographer
  • Artist
  • Marketer
  • Business Owner & CEO
  • Blogger
  • Printer
  • Networker
  • Cook
  • Cleaner
  • Transportation
  • Bridesmaid

 

While I value and enjoy each of these roles in some way, it was the last one that made my week. I not only had the opportunity to share such an amazing event with my sister but she had asked me to help her and support her in the planning, preparation and execution of this fantastic celebration. Does this make it a better hat to wear than say, being a mom, no! Not by any means. But it's recognizing that this was a hat I was privileged enough to wear for a short period of time, and as many other hats as I may have been wearing - this was something I was proud to add to my plate.
