Have you ever thought about the word only?
I'm only a mum.
I'm only part time.
I'm only term time.
I'm only able to do x, y, z.
Its so negative and I say it ALL the time.
Why do we put ourselves down? Why do we make our achievements seem insignificant?
I attended a workshop this week and for the first time ever something clicked.
I'm good at my job. I'm a good parent. Both through my job & being a parent I have loads of transferable skills (you do too!)
I can multi task. I have good communication skills. I have patience. I can empathise. I can be creative. I have strong English language skills. I have IT skills. I can budget. I can build a rapport with all types of people. I can effectively manage time & workloads. I can inspire.
I am not only a part time worker. I am a valuable worker. I am not only anything.
Let's just hope I remember this in a few weeks time and I hope this has given you a boost too.
