You are the only person alive who has sole custody of your life. Your particular life. Your entire life...not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank account, but your soul.

Susan: The Organizer, mother of four
“Working at a fast-paced job and raising my kids sometimes left me feeling off-kilter. After realizing that I could combine the skills I’d developed at work with an appreciation for the unpredictability of family life, I’ve come to find real joy as a stay-at–home mother.”

Anne: The Enthusiast, mother of twins and a boy
“I try to fully embrace every part of life — so sometimes I find myself stretched too thin. Achieving the right balance for me and my family has always been one of my greatest challenges. Not willing to give up on anything — work, family, friendships or hobbies — I’ve now learned to slow down and take time for me.”

Katrin: The Free Spirit, mother of three
“Because I find so much personal fulfillment from living in my imagination — reading, writing and creating art — family routines and responsibilities can be challenging for me. But I’ve finally come to value my strengths and make peace with not being perfect. So I find greater satisfaction in my role as a mother.”
