“she balanced the book on her head”
As of late I have lacked balance. In my personal and professional life. My poor blog has been ignored as well as my laundry. I am so so so thankful for all of the fantastic business I have had this fall. I have had the pleasure of working with some really wonderful, amazing people, people who instantly I knew would turn into not just great clients but great friends as well. I thought I was “prioritizing” my clients to come first but what I have realized is without a balance to my work life as well as home life I am really doing everyone a disservice. I always want to give 110% but have realized this is simply not possible if I am trying to give 110% 110% of the time. It doesn’t add up and it makes for a grumpy groggy me.
I have always found it incredibly hard to say “no” when it is something I love. A craft sale benefiting a great charity? Sign me up! Picking up a friend from the airport? Absolutely! A chance to meet some new clients and capture a special time in their life? You know I am ALL about it. And the thing is I really don’t ever want to say no to any of these things. I enjoy what I do so very much and truly love my crazy busy life! But there needs to be balance. AND…maybe a touch more organization for this right brain creative.
Sigh…If only there were a few more hours in the day (who among us hasn’t wished for this wish a handful of times?!)
