Act One: The Juggler
I can’t get out of my own way. I am constantly juggling way too much at once and killing myself trying to keep all the balls in the air. I often call it multi-tasking but, it’s not. Multi-tasking is what I do at work and I do it damn well. This is more like, I’m a single mom, I work full-time, I have two houses to take care of and a small but steady consulting business on the side. Why not start a blog? A fitness program? Don’t forget about the charity golf tournament that I run every August. Oh, and in my spare time, I should babysit for anyone and everyone that needs my help. Yes! Did I mention my sister is getting married in two months and I’m the maid of honor? NO PROBLEM!
BRING IT ON!
There’s no one to blame but myself. I have always had a really hard time saying “NO”. I make a promise to myself every year to simplify my life, to start saying no and focus on me a little bit more. Like everyone else’s gym resolutions, it lasts a solid week.
This blog is helping me turn a new leaf. This is something I actually WANT to be doing. Maybe someday it will help me simplify everything else. Put the metaphorical balls on a shelf somewhere, if you will. For now, it at least gives me the opportunity to vent about it.
What do you juggle?
