As some of you may know I’m currently juggling running my own business (which takes up SO MUCH time), NANOWRIMO (which takes up more time than I’d anticipated) and blogging, which is the only thing on my “to-do” list that doesn’t make my stomach turn. Maybe because I’m in control of it. I’m in control of what I post, and when I post it. I’m in control of the whole thing and don’t have deadlines hanging over my head. If I happened to miss a post then there’d only be me that I’d be disappointing, you know. And yet, it’s the blogging that I’m somehow losing.
In October I learned that doing everything is hard work. There’s always something I have to sacrifice and it’s a pain in the butt. I want to get all my “worky” stuff done, as well as writing a novel with 50K characters, taking all the photos for my blog and scheduling the post, having all the lush baths, and going for walks and doing the other things that I love. I’m failing with my reading and photography, and I feel like I’m doing nothing that I LOVE love anymore, with other things that I once did LOVE becoming a chore.
I feel like I spend too much time trying to make other people happy that I have to sacrifice my own happiness in return. I’m too busy doing things that other people want me to do, and forget to do the things that I want to do for myself. Juggling is hard especially when the hours in the day seem to be getting shorter, I swear they only last for about 5 hours nowadays.
Basically I need your tips and advice, how on earth do you juggle a million and one things and not get so stressed out? HELP.
I’m hoping in November I learn to stay on top of everything and make time in the day for doing the things I love, or you know, maybe I’ll grow 10 pairs of hands. That would just be fab.
I hope you all have a lovely month, and I apologise if my blogging schedule is all over the place. I promise I’m working on it.
