Being a fierce female who works and has a family means more often than not you are asked the question “How do you keep that work-life balance?” The question is gendered which is problematic. However, it does present us with an opportunity to reflect on what balance is and what it means to each of us. Work-life balance can be choosing a day, a time where your mind is clear, it can mean being present in a certain space, it could also be about creating boundaries within your professional and personal relationships.
