Ever tried finding out the ingredients that go into each bottle of facial cleanser that you buy from the market? Well, I did just yesterday. And the effect was, well, very overwhelming to say the least. It turned out that apart from water and glycerin I had absolutely no clue about the things mentioned there. The list was a pretty long one and included such things as Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine and Glyceryl OleateVitis Vinifera to name just a few. Phew! I could momentarily travel back to the chemistry lab from my school days.
So when was the last time you saw a working mom with a perfectly clean house, flawless skin and makeup and always smiling, obedient kids? Chances are in a TV commercial. But life beyond the idiot box is so very different. Ask any working mom and she can vouch for how hard it is to score a perfect ten when it comes to being an awesome mom and a great employee. But that is also the point where most ‘complications’ begin, that is, when we try to be ‘perfect’. Because being perfect was never necessary, being happy was. And once we understand and work according to this simple principle, the whole thing might not seem to be so difficult after all!
