The other day someone asked me if I see myself as a career woman or a wife. I answered that I'm both a career woman and a wife. But what comes first? Family.
This discussion started when the podcast got out and media spotlighted me quitting my musical career for good. In the same articles you could read about me getting married and my blog becoming a big business and income just over a couple of weeks. I dedicated my whole youth to my career and work. I spent close to 8 years only focusing on my music. Family, friends and my health came second. Did this make me happy? No.
I've always been very ambitious with everything I do. I go all in with everything and I really put my heart and time in everything I decide to take on. But getting married has given me a perspective I never thought I'd have. (I actually thought I'd never get married as well.) I feel joy, peace and happiness I thought I'd never experience. And for me that's more important than any job. Being best friends with your job gets pretty lonely at some point and I drove myself crazy. I could be surrounded by people I worked with all day, everyday. But when I got to my hotel room at night I just felt empty. Whatever banger song I had written or something I had accomplished didn't give me any joy or peace when I sat in a quiet room all by myself.
I love action and I love having things to do. Which means I pretty much love working and I definitely enjoy working with my blog. I want to point out that you can be both a career woman and a wife. You can be a career woman and a friend, a sister, a mother and anything really. But the most important thing is that you know yourself and know what makes you happy and what doesn't. Prioritizing isn't always that easy but for me it's pretty clear now. My family's well-being comes first and that will always be my number one priority in life.
Ps. I sometimes call myself a stay-at-home wife because I work from home. Ha-ha I'm so funny I know... Crazy.
Ps 2. I'll probably be a stay-at-home wife at some point. My motto for working these days is pretty much that I do what I want as long as it makes me happy. So I'll probably try 50 different things, stay-at-home wife included!!
