Change is Always Possible
About Emma Langton
When I adopted my two girls in 2007. They were four and five years old when they arrived, and, quite simply, had far more needs than we’d expected. My eldest had so many additional needs there wasn’t enough space on the forms to fit them all in!
Our early experiences make us who we are, and my girls needed help with after-effects of their early life. That meant I had to learn very quickly about psychology, fears, anxiety and stressors. It also meant keeping emotions under control and not buckling under the pressure. My work life needed to be successful but I also needed to be available to provide support to our family, so I couldn’t let it drain my time and energy. My girls needed me. Using all my knowledge I incorporated healthy boundaries and great working practices that enabled me to do the work I love while giving me the freedom to be with my family. It’s about balance, and it is for you too.
It’s never too late to make a positive impact; change is always possible. The question is, are you ready to prioritise that? I made a choice to leave my corporate role to prioritise the girls, but I still love working in that corporate environment. When we love what we do, it doesn’t have to feel like hard work. Wouldn’t that be great for you and your team too?
