Wise words from my interview with Michelle McDaid:
I 100% agree that there aren’t enough great examples of women pursuing creative work while juggling the roles of wife and mother too. In my own life, I try to avoid the concept of “balance” in general because to me that implies precariously balancing in the middle of a scale with SELF on one side and FAMILY on the other. It’s an impossible middle place of perfection to achieve. Instead I view life as a series of pendulum swings between the two and my job it to keep it swinging back and forth as freely as possible. In the long run, the clock still keeps time, right?
Such a great interview with her; she has such great insight. Such an inspiration! Thanks, Michelle!
