6 Reasons Why I am Happy Being A Working Mother


“Motherhood is a 24X7 job with smiles being the only payout. “

Hence all of us as a mother are always working. However , Today I am not talking about all the moms. I am going to talk about moms like me who have a professional 8-9 hour job apart from the mom duties. This post is about me โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

I am Happy Being A Working Mother

I am in an industry where you would hardly find females on the job. Network Security is a demanding field. You know internet never shuts down and hence the network threats are always around too.

At each stage of life I had the option of choosing work or staying at home. I always choose putting my techie brain to work.

1. Fixed Routine

I love the routine I have for the weekdays. It has definitely helped me set a routine for my kids and make them understand the value of time.

2. Getting out of the 4 walls

Its human nature, you get irritated of staying in the same place 24X7. Being at work gives me the liberty of going out of the 4 walls of the house and see new faces( almost ๐Ÿ˜€ )

3. Love to Dress UP

My mantra “No matter what Get up, Dress Up and show UP” is something that keeps me going. Going to work gives me a reason to dress up everyday and that makes me happy . When I am home I am in night suit as soon as I reach home.

4. My Everyday Me-time

The time I take to travel to work is the time I spend doing what I want to do. I listen to music, I talk to my mum. That is my “Me time” for the day.

5. I love Technology

Also, the reason I still am into a techie role ๐Ÿ˜ฎ , it gives me immense satisfaction in doing things related to technology. Be it checking the code, reading about a new gadget/app, troubleshooting an issue.

6. Sense of being loved

Many moms complain that the kid will forget mummy the moment they see father in the evening . I love the expressions on my girls’ face when I go to pick them from the daycare are extremely encouraging for me. It make me feel important too ๐Ÿ™‚

Disclaimer : This post in no means is about demeaning/disrespecting any SAHM or WFHM. All moms are doing great I have shared my experiences and my views in this as a woman who is into a 9-hour office job.




  1. Really. I do not value my kids any less but working in a full time job is also part of my individuality

  2. Haha, your points are totally opposite of what I like doing, and that makes us 2 different individuals who are yet so similar. Great post, Kapila!

  3. That is just wonderful. Most of the time people crib about work but I have observed that women are extremely happy at their workplace. You rightly pointed out that it gives a chance to dress up and go out, meet new people. It feels good. All the best to you always in your career.
