Balance is a tricky thing. And finding that balance is different for everyone; what works for one person may be detrimental to another. A big part of that feeling of being overwhelmed is because of how busy we all are and how much we're trying to take on.
Especially as women, I feel we put that extra pressure on ourselves to accomplish it all, don't you think? We're all striving to be the best of everything. The best girlfriend, wife, mother, friend, blogger. Have the nicest home, cook up the most delicious recipes, and actually get around to creating all those things we've pinned on Pinterest.
Most of us (myself included) are trying to create that balance between having a full time job, maintaining relationships with loved ones, sustain some sort of social life, while fulfilling our passions and hobbies. It's tough. And sometimes, it's easier to look at that never-ending to-do list and just say "Screw it. I'm grabbing a bag of chips and sitting on the couch instead."
And it's true. Our to-do lists really are never-ending. Is it just me or doesn't it seem like just when you think you have everything under control, it spirals out into chaos? If it's not one thing, it's another.
Maybe that's why I've constantly written out my goals and "things to do" and never gotten around to them. Actually, yes. I know that's why. Those lists have been thrown at the bottom of the heap of paper on my desk, where they've suffered the ultimate death of not being checked off and never being thought of again.
Now, here I am, searching for that balance that works for me. And I know a lot of us are in that same boat, waiting and searching for those same answers.
So what is the answer? To put it simply - I don't know. But you better believe
if when I do discover it, I'm gonna do my best to bottle it up and share it with the world. Until then, I'm making this my mantra.
What do you do to keep a balance in your every days? Do you feel the pressure to keep up with it all?
