Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings horses, and all the kings men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again
I’m feeling like Humpty Dumpty. I’m teetering on the edge of a wall. I’ve got so much to do, and I feel like I have so little time to do it in.
You would think that as a stay at home mom with two kids in school full-time that I would have all the time in the world, right?
Can I just have a few extra hours added to my day?
I don’t want to fall off of that wall and come crashing down.
I am not ready to give up any of my extras. However, somethings got to go. Instead of giving something up, I keep finding myself getting excited about more projects, more goals, and more to do’s.
I love goals, calendars, checklists. I love the feeling of completion. I love feeling productive.
What I need, is to find balance. Balancing my passions, and balancing my role as a present and engaged mom.
This means running when my kids are still asleep in the morning, or after they’ve gone to bed at night.
This means getting all my business done as the president of the national Federation of the blind of Nevada while the kids are in school.
This means putting myself out there on social media to promote my blog.
This means finding time in my day to start writing my book.
This means putting in the research for a project my mind is spinning around to empower blind children through the love of running.
This means keeping a clean and tidy house for a slightly OCD husband.
This means, this mom starts her day with a good cup of coffee in the morning and ends it with a Great glass of wine at night.
As I teeter along like Humpty Dumpty, I continue to run and write, as those are the two things that keep me balanced.
What keeps you balanced?
