Gisele is pictured here getting ready for work after a 15 hour flight breastfeeding her 1 year old daughter Vivian.
I had to share this photo Gisele Bundchen posted on Instagram. Yes, it’s a hot chick feeding a baby at work but I felt warm inside for so many other reasons.
I’m going to immediately put it out there. Giselle is a supermodel with a massive bank account and a huge team of professionals constantly around her but how this photo spoke to me was about a whole lot more.
She had just got off a 15 hour flight. I shudder at the thought of a 3 hour flight with a baby and will be the first to admit that I have not yet considered a long haul, first class or not, a baby doesn’t care! And we all know how crabby they are when you get to the destination….
I saw a hard working mum doing her best to juggle family and work. The fact that she can take her baby to work is something not everyone has the luxury to do or can relate to but it is something that I have always tried to achieve.
Women are truly amazing. We can juggle so many things, wear so many hats and at the end of the day we are all human just trying to get through life making choices that we think are the right ones for us.
I have three kids, all which flat out refuse to take a bottle so anyone that has worked with me over the years would know I have been stuck in this position many times.
This photo isn’t just about breastfeeding, it’s about the lengths women can go to just to try and ‘have it all’.
I just love seeing that no matter who we are, we all so similar in many ways.
I often get asked ‘how do you do it, you are so busy’! The full version will take a few posts but I think the short version is that I try to create a life where I can have the best of both worlds.
We can achieve what ever we set our minds to with little or no compromise.
Family, work, balance, happiness.
The ultimate pursuit.
