motherhood

I am who I am, because you are who you are

May 15, 2017

Because motherhood is the most maddeningly fantastic love affair that I never knew I wanted.

And because sometimes you need a good cry.

Thank you Apple for another great ad. Happy belated Mother’s Day in true working mom fashion.

 

If you’re like me and think this song is everything. Link to a full version and lyrics are below.


 

Because You Are Who You Are | K.S. Rhoads

Whenever I’m around you.

I go home a little bit.

There’s just something about you.

Where the pieces all fit.

There’s a lightness that surrounds you.

And it guides me like a star.

Oh I am, who I am.

Because you are who you are.

Put your hand in my hand.

And I am made brand new.

Somehow you just understand.

You always know just what to do.

And even when you are away.

You’re never all that far.

Oh I am, who I am.

Because you are who you are.

The truth is this.

And don’t forget.

That my world’s better cause you’re in it.

There’s a lightness that surrounds you.

And it guides me like a star.

Oh I am, who I am.

Because you are who you are.

family first

November 5, 2014

Was just chatting with my cousin this morning about work/life balance, career, family and the grass always being greener. As a working mom it can be easy to feel guilt for not being around for all of the moments of every day. Sometimes, when the scales seem to be tipped the furthest away from your personal life, it can be difficult to feel truly committed and fulfilled.

That’s why I had to share this video from Union, an ad agency on the short list for Agency of the Year.

Their set-up is simple:

This business of advertising isn’t easy. There are people who put their blood, sweat and tears into the campaigns they produce. That’s why, when an agency like Union gets shortlisted for strategy‘s Agency of the Year awards, the painstaking time and effort that goes into the creative product is worth celebrating. And the shop knew just what gift to give its staffers for a job well done.

Agency life can be creative, amazing and fulfilling while at the same time maddening, insane and all-consuming. This video is a hilarious reminder.

Hope you like it as much as I did!
