Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


Work, Family and Life

By on September 15, 2010

I was inspired by this article in the September 2010 edition of Oprah Magazine. I have written about the challenges of balancing family, life and work in a previous blog post. The Belgian tennis player – Kim Clijsters is a living example of this. She took a break from tennis to start a family and took that plunge that so many mothers find hard to do. She reignited her career, winning the US open this past weekend. I am sure if you ask Ms Clijsters she will tell you that it was not all roses, peaches and cream. It is hard work to be a mother, family person and balance a successful career, but she did it and so can you (even in heels!)
