There's Only One Me
Life gets in the way, and I'm learning one of the hardest things to do is juggle it all. At this point in my life, I'm trying to balance a very demanding job, being an up and coming author, family, the new....dare I say it.....MAN in my life and my own personal improvement. Some of this improvement comes in the form of a new hobby. I've realized that other than writing, I don't have one. I want something that doesn't involve a computer screen. I'm contemplating yoga, archery, potter making....ugh I don't know. I just want something that allows me to escape this digital world I've grown to live in 24/7. This computer has become a necessity and my poor eyes are paying for it. If you have any suggestions send them to me.
Each time I become frustrated by the fact that there are only 24 hours in the day and only one of me....I think back to that famous quote by someone named Anonymous. "You can have it all but not at the same time." In short, prioritize. As I struggle to juggle my busy life as I stand on one leg and scratch my behind I have to strategically eliminate some of the balls in my hands lest I fall over and hurt myself or drop something I can't afford to lose. All my Superwomen repeat after me.....there's only one me....there's only one me.....there's only one me. I've got to stop feeling guilty that I can't do it all and revel in the fact that I'm talented enough to do any of it.
Remember that and be blessed!
Today's lesson: There's only one me. (-:
