I was browsing through the pages of my website to see what updates I wanted to make this month. It seems like from week to week I gain more clarity about streamlining my online presence. It’s like you start out just wanting to write. Then you see that blogging is about more than writing. Then you realize if you ever want to write full-time, you need to diversify your hustle and before you know it, you’re slightly off the beaten path. But that’s a little beside the point.
I started writing a very eloquent introduction to this post but I realized that I was probably not really doing the topic justice as currently I’m struggling like a mug to have it all! So originally, I was saying that I’ve gotten into many debates about this. We see it play out often in narratives like Being Mary Jane and Scandal where women seemingly have it all professionally but can’t seem to find a lasting relationship to save their lives. Or you’re the mom in Love & Basketball who gave up all her hopes and dreams of being a caterer to take care of the family. And it leaves many women asking, is it possible to have it all?
