I’ve been reading Hollee and Becky, as they are known on Twitter, for many months now, and they never fail to impress me. Whether the topic is going back to work or giving up the guilt, they’re always there with an encouraging word.
Their new book, “Good Enough is the New Perfect,” brings their experiences interviewing over a hundred working mothers – and surveying over 800 more – about work, life, mothering, breathing space, and striving for the best that we can possibly be into a compact, easily digestible book that is a must for anyone beating themselves up over motherhood. Or work. Or the combination.
The book has hundreds of examples and showcases just as many ways of making it work. It’s this decade’s compendium of how we’re making it work, and it’s a great read, browse, or just-carry-around-because-you’re-so-busy-book. Check it out. Take a breath. And realize – you are working hard, and you can achieve great things.
Perfect is optional.
Disclosure: I was sent this book to review by Hollee and Becky (or their publicist – who remembers?); I received no compensation for this post. Which is good, because it’s about two months late.
