Finding Balance

One of the hardest things in life is finding balance. How do we incorporate all of the things we love to do in a single day when there is so little time? I am posing this question because I haven’t quite figured this out yet. I seem to take on too many things, which leaves no time for me. It has left me feeling that I need a day or two to hide from the world. It has left me feeling somewhat dazed and confused. I am thinking that the day for me will pass in record speed, and the needle will be dropped once again on the same song. This happens over and over… and over again. And life flies by. Perhaps that’s why I wrote about the Metamorphosis. I feel like Gregor Samsa, turning into a bug. Ho hum…

Can anyone relate? I suppose part of it may be that I am pretty much alone. I don’t have a family and children, or someone to sort of navigate through the journey with me. I hope I will at some point. Until then I will sprout legs and crawl up the wall as people throw some parcels of food my way, still trying to figure out how to balance (juggle) everything. Or… perhaps I need to quit reading Kafka at the moment. *laughs at self*

Ps...I have stayed away from the WIP for two weeks. I'm now getting the shakes and other odd symptoms. Medication maybe?

So much for my theory that if I could become a hermit and not have to deal with family I wouldn't have this problem.

I know how you feel.

You are not alone my dear, you are your adoring fans. :)

Marybeth said...

Not alone at all....and sometimes, even with family, children, spouses...it's easy to feel like you are navigating the journey alone.

I don't think many of us have quite figured out balance. But you can surely strive to. AND if you learn the secret, don't forget to share it!!!

Please don't turn into a bug on us. Something nice like a butterfly maybe ;)

Cindy said...

Lol. I take on too much all the time. Once I think I've found a balance, it all turns upside down and I'm back where I started. You are definitely not alone!

Marybeth said...

Yeah, bugs usually do not have a happy fate...did you read about "Roger"??? Poor ant :(

Tara - (((hugs))) thank you for showing me another side.

Patrick - I AM my fans? lol You are sweet.

Marybeth - you are right. Roger the ant made me laugh so hard! Your comments were hysterical! I love listening to kids' conversations!

T. Anne - I will go for the butterfly! LOL

Cindy - Your post helped me a lot today! :-)

I know exactly how you feel. I have a family, but the two-year old isn't worth much for conversation and my hubby works full time and goes to school full time, and he acts. This means he's never home. This is why I spend a lot of time online and writing.

The balance is hard. I just received a new job in my church that will be eating up a lot of my time and energy and emotion... writing and blogging will get pushed back, I'm sure.

I think the trick is priorities.

And you always know that if you need anything, I'm here. :)

Thanks LG! :-) Ya know...I feel better today. Sometimes I just get all philosophical for some reason. LOL!!! It's writer's angst!
