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.
