I know it seems I am constantly apologizing for not writing more frequently. That I am giving excuses for not sharing. This is not my intent. I am realizing through much therapy and self reflection that as I strive for a better work life balance, I continue to overcommit to things. I have passions and beliefs and I want to help. Does this make me a target for being a sucker or being too nice. I admit it, I have a NICE problem which leads me to a YES problem.
So in that I have to readjust some goals. We are still on the 40lbs for 40, and though I may hit 40 articles for 40 I am not stressing. I have to say that they may not be blog articles per se. I have reviews and other things I am working on that I want to stay current on. So I am going to count these as well. I hope this is ok with all of you?
Recently though I have had to say to clubs and meetings and such that I am very happy to help, but I cannot be on the board. I cannot always attend a meeting, because my kids go down at a certain time and this mama wants to bathe her children and put them to bed. She wants to see them for the 4 hours she has with them daily. If a meeting is at 7, unless I have another meeting beforehand, I am not going home quick feeding my kids and sneaking out of the house for them to realize I left them. I want experiences for my children. I want experiences with my children. So I am not going to that meeting, sorry. I may only spend an hour on the couch watching horribly chosen TV with Mr. WaitWhat but it is the time I have with him and I do not want to sacrifice that.
That's my story. What are your tactics? How do you balance? How do you make time quality?
