Do Your Best

Well, I'm the proud new momma of Miss Annabel, who has just hit the ripe old age of three weeks. Hence why I've fallen off my blogging (and many other activities such as sleeping and showering). I gotta say, this mothering thing is a lot more challenging than anticipated, largely because I am more sleep deprived than I ever thought possible. (To think that I was worried about the labour--it's laughable now!)

But I'm doing my best because I must. It's what you do when it's for your child. I never really thought the meaning of becoming a parent would be so palpable so early on, but it pretty much kicks in ASAP.

Doing your best is about all you can ask of anyone. And if you truly do perform at your best, then it is almost always enough. And if it isn't, part of doing your best is knowing when to ask for help. Which I am trying to do as well.

Along the same lines of doing your best, Avenue magazine's November issue features the annual Top 40 under 40 (nice segue, I know). I had the pleasure of interviewing Stephanie Raynor-Hohol, one of this year's top 40 who is a single mom and business owner, working hard and doing good. Have a read through on all her do-gooding.

Until next time, which hopefully won't be too far off, but if it is, you now know why...
