Embracing Your New Identity:
The Journey from Corporate to Motherhood

Motherhood is a journey like no other, our experiences unique, and when you mix in the transition from the corporate world to motherhood, it can add a whole other layer.

Think of this, were you once a high performing leader and contributor in the corporate world and then when motherhood came, you felt like a beginner all over again?

And anything you knew in the corporate world felt like it all of a sudden went out the window?

This transition from the structured, predictable world of corporate life to the beautiful, unpredictable journey of motherhood can be the most difficult adjustment of one's life.

Amongst the rollercoaster of joy, then unexpected challenges, and a fair share of sleepless nights, there is also a beautiful journey of self-discovery and growth.

Let’s take a look ⤵️

The Emotional Rollercoaster

Remember when you landed your first big project or promotion or the pride you felt from a well-received presentation or piece of work? Motherhood can provide those proud moments and it can also come with its own set of challenges.

Firstly, it's okay to feel a whirlwind of emotions – from elation to overwhelm, from pride to uncertainty (and let’s face it, you will probably have all of these feelings in one day or any given moment!). These feelings are all part of navigating this new world of motherhood.

How can we embrace these emotions?

Pressing Pause on Your Professional Life

Stepping away from your career, even briefly, can feel like leaving behind a piece of your identity. The way we once were can change in an instant.

But what if we viewed this pause not as a full stop but as a comma? A moment to breathe, reflect, and grow.

This break could be your chance to reassess what truly fulfils you, both in your career and in your new role as a mama.

What does this pause mean to you and your career?

I see you nodding your head at this and wondering how can you start to embrace your new identity as a mama?

➡️ Reflect Deeply:

Take this time in motherhood to dive into your own heart and soul. What drives you?

What dreams have you put on hold?

This introspection can guide you toward a career and life path that resonates with your true self.

➡️ Prioritise Self-Care:

Yes, your little one needs you, but so do you. Whether it's a quiet cup of tea, a brisk walk, or a heart-to-heart with a friend, find moments that rejuvenate your spirit.

➡️ Set Boundaries without Guilt:

Learning to say no is a superpower. Set boundaries that allow you to thrive both at home and in your career.

It’s not just about dividing your time; it’s about enriching your life.

➡️ Lean on Your Support Network:

Surround yourself with people who lift you up, understand your journey, and can offer a shoulder to lean on or a word of advice when you need it most. And it’s okay to ask for help.

As you stand with your corporate life on one side and motherhood on the other, remember, you're not just transitioning into a new role >> you're expanding, growing, and embracing a fuller version of yourself.

It's not about leaving one identity behind but about welcoming new facets of who you are and who you're becoming.
