I feel like I have not stopped to take a breath in the last two weeks.
I don’t think I like it.
I mean I am busy and busy can be good, but there is a fine line between busy and crazy-busy.
Busy is having something to do and managing to still get the basics taken care of.
Crazy-Busy on the other hand leaves me feeling like I am always forgetting something, barely meeting commitments, scrambling to take care of pretty basic stuff (Oh hai couch covered in clean laundry! Stop looking at me like that. I’ll get to you. Eventually.), not being as careful as I should be with the care and feeding of myself, skipping exercise (because surely all this running around must be good for something, right? Wrong.) Feeling like I can’t do it all.
It is not balanced.
I want balance.
How the heck do people achieve that? Seriously. I’m asking.
I want to write more and I love having something to do. Honestly. These things make me extremely happy.
I need to take charge of my shedule.
Maybe I should actually construct one, even. Oh ho! Now we’re talking!
I love knowing that something fun is coming up and I love looking forward to family events and fun with my Things.
I have no qualms making sure that they meet their commitments, get sleep, eat well, exercise. (Thing 2 is even taking part in the Drs. NS Youth Run this morning at the Blue Nose Marathon.)
Time to take a step back and make sure I am doing this for myself.
Yesterday, was actually lovely. We had a family day and we haven’t done that in a long, long, time.
That’s the first thing getting entered in my work life balance schedule.
How do you manage it all?
Do you even try?
When is the last time you felt at ease with the way everything was working out in your life?
Do you live a Crazy-Busy life?
Do you secretly love it?
