So much of the time I think we spend so much of our lives trying to answer to and be what other want us to be. As Moms we have to and want to fill our children's needs…as professionals we want to meet the status quo and meet challenges…be successful– as women, we want to juggle it all and handle all of these things will ease and grace…while wearing great shoes 🙂
I ask…Can it be done? It seems that I just spend most of my time putting out the fires with the biggest flames! LOL! (While wearing Croc flip flops :) I try so hard to separate family and work– but it is sometimes very difficult with a toddler and two school age children. The result= lots of LATE nights trying to play catch up.
Seeing some of this coverage of Sarah Palin…makes me ponder. I think some women can do it. Me, I am ALWAYS searching and praying for balance in all aspects of my life. I think this is one of the biggest struggles of my life right now.
5. A stable mental or psychological state; emotional
proportion of parts or elements, as in a design. See Synonyms at proportion.
So, I know what balance is…how do I go about getting there? I'm always looking for what's over the next hill…in other words, when I get past this (beit a deadline, the end of the school year, whatever)…then I'll have time to breathe, recompose, take some time off…GUESS WHAT? That never happens. And life just seems to happen faster and faster, doesn't it?
Now this may sound like a big ole pity party– really, its not…I am always grateful for each busy task I have to do– because that means so much– it means I have a family that needs me, it means I have work aplenty, it means I have church kids counting on me, it means that I'm needed and I have something to give…which is really a series of blessings.
I suppose all women struggle with these thoughts and feelings…what about you? I'd love to hear you thoughts on this subject?
All I want…is to find that balance. What a feeling of contentment that would be…ahhhh….
and speaking of — I better get to packing kits…everyone is in bed and I have to go to work now!!
