I'm writing this series on Living with Wholeness to counter our obsession with perfection. Its partly (and perhaps largely) due to society's emphasis on flawlessness, and even more so for women. Perfect skin, the perfect figure, a perfect tan, the perfect vacation, the list is endless, have all become multi-billion dollar industries.
It's fascinating to see how much these individuals have accomplished in a short time, and how much impact they are making in the world. From new alternatives in transportation, sports, and personal fitness, to the entertainment, banking, and political arenas, their businesses are challenging tradition in the new economy.
I've been noticing a pattern when I talk with moms about exploring their interests beyond motherhood. Most often, they share that it would be nice to have something they could call their own. Something that allows them to find fulfillment outside of motherhood. Something that might bring in a little income and help them create the lifestyle they desire for their family. Something that lets them see outside the day-to-day and make a difference in their communities -- and beyond.
