We see hundreds of moms on forums every week asking (no – begging!) for help in finding ways to work at home so that they can be there for their kids.
Then in another thread we’ll see a group of moms who are working at home complaining about the woes of the WAH lifestyle.
I regularly practice an attitude of gratitude in regards to my work at home status. You won’t hear me complaining about ‘the trouble with working at home’. I just can’t understand how any number of little WAH annoyances could stack up to things like commuting, daycare and panty hose.
I so love working at home. (And I’ll say it again) I LOVE working at home!
I don’t want moms to stop venting about their frustrations when they need to. Forums are a great place to blog off some steam and regain perspective – so don’t think I’m shaming anyone for expressing their feelings.
A new Blog Meme for WAHMs
What I do want is to encourage all work at home moms to practice an attitude of gratitude for their position as a WAHM. Taking a minute now and then to consider all the reasons you have to be grateful for your work at home lifestyle – then take another minute and share what you’re grateful for with others.
You’ll be improving your mindset and spreading a little inspiration and encouragement – and to add a bit of frosting on your cupcake – if you ‘count your WAH blessings’ on your blog and use this image to link back to this post, I’ll enter your name in a weekly drawing for a $50.00 Gift Certificate to anything you like at Mom’s Talk Biz.
While you’re posting, go ahead and tag some other WAHMs you know and ask them to join in and share their reasons for being glad to work at home.
Every week I’ll recap the week’s participating posts and put all of the bloggers emails in a hat for the drawing. (And yes, you can participate every week if you want to – and I think it’d be really cool if you did!)
By the way, if you don’t have a blog to participate with – I invite you to read a quick report from MomWebs about starting a mom blog. (Cuz everyone needs a blog!)
