Life is about balance

This week, I have learned that life is about balance.  I thought I knew how to balance my life.  When I added a full time job into the mix, I had to readjust my entire thinking.

This week, I realized that I was trying to be a full time blogger by spending time in the evening after work updating my blog.  In doing so, I felt overwhelmed with trying to juggle family, household cleaning and my blog.

Now that I work full time, I am not able to devote as much time to blogging.  Instead, I have decided to blog on the weekends.  I will update my blog occasionally during the week if needed.

This week, I have realized that I need to put my blog second to my family.  For the last two and a half years, I have been able to juggle my blog and family because I was a stay at home mom.

Realizing that I can no longer be a full time blogger is a huge wake up call to me.  I like to do it all.  I love being a mom and wife.  My full time job takes up the majority of my time now.  My family comes first and I had to remind myself of that.

I now spend less time on my blog during the week and will save the majority of my blogging for the weekend.  Since I have rediscovered a new balance in my life, I am less stressed out.  I no longer worry about updating my blog as soon as I get home from work.
