Okay, so I wouldn't say my life is complete chaos lately, but it's close! And trying to find that balance in my life has been really hard lately.
I work full time
I have a family that needs me
I try to make sure we eat good by cooking healthy meals
I like to blog, to journal and record my life
I like (and need) a clean organized house
I love photography and I love styling and planning photo shoots
I have friends that I enjoy talking to and hanging out with
I need to...and sort of enjoy working out
I like crafting
I like to read other blogs, and meet new bloggers, and connect with them
I like to travel, take weekend getaways, plan adventures
I have a husband that wants (and definitely deserves) quality time with me
I like to go shopping, sometimes at places other than online
I enjoy reading books, and watching movies
I love being outdoors
I like to try new things, do things I've never done before
I have a need for occasional alone time, to just be with myself
A good friend of mine, Nina, recently said "Balance is hard"...
...yes, it certainly is. Those 3 simple words are so, so true.
I am struggling right now to find balance
I am going through some stressful times at work, which is disrupting this balance even more
Something always seem to be left behind...there is always something I just can't get to.
I know this is normal for a working, married woman with a toddler.
But it doesn't matter if it's completely normal.
That still doesn't make me feel any better when I want to do it all
I HAVE to do some of those things on that list, and I WANT to do the others.
But it always seems like the "want to" things are the ones that get left undone.
There are a handful of things on that list above that I can't remember the last time I had time to do.
And that makes me sad sometimes...and stressed other times.
And wishing I had more "time in the day" all the time.
