Motherhood Wisdom From Gwyneth Paltrow

Loved this from Gwyneth Paltrow:

Paltrow says that due to her family, she has greatly reduced her work schedule, and it could be reduced even more with another baby. “I look for an interesting supporting part about once a year. That’s the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t. You make choices as a wife and mother, don’t you? You can’t have it all. I don’t care what it looks like,” Gwyneth says.


She echoes something I feel strongly about and live with every day. You can't have it all. Something's going to eclipse the other. For me, that something has to be my family or I know I'll regret it later. And I don't want regret to sneak up on me. Because you can't undo regret. You just have to live with it.

PS. I still say she and Robert Downey Jr have no chemistry in the Ironman movies.
Pin It!

I completely agree MaryBeth! I'm sure I could "do more" at this time in my life, but the sacrifice would be too great. I'll have time for that--very soon, in fact!
