  1. Thank you so much for sharing my post, Laura! I was nervous about approaching the subject and haven’t yet had the chance to reply to some of the great comments/feedback I received, but I think it is an important thing for women and men alike to think about and discuss. Personally, I believe it comes down to understanding that you can’t have it all and being okay with that. Committing yourself 100% to multiple aspects in life is not feasible and as soon as we realize it, the happier we will be!

    • That’s EXACTLY it – life is about choices for sure. They may be difficult, but you can’t pretend that there aren’t tradeoffs.
