…I can’t do it all. As much as I’d like to give of myself when an opportunity arises, I’ve realized that I’m wearing myself too thin.
I was reading Funkidivagirl’s post on her lack of blog entries and I felt the SAME way! Not just burnt out but stressed. My life has become a balancing act of responsibility. Oh to be a child again. Well, not really. Being an adult has its perks. But too much going on is starting to become a bad thing for me. Here’s why:
Full Time Job
All my bloggers know that blogging is really a full-time job. To be successful and really good at it, you have to dedicate a lot of time. I often wondered how the people whose blogs I follow find the time to write every single day and it’s always a good post. I found out that many of them do not have traditional day jobs or work for themselves. I tried having a different themed post five days a week and other bloggers told me I was crazy lol. Now I see it as a bit of insanity but I like to keep my readers interested.
I haaaate being bored. I simply abhor it. So the more things I can find to do, the better it is for me. “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop” is what I used to hear growing up. And there’s so many causes that I’m interested in helping where I can. In the end, I gather too much on my plate. I need to do better at saying NO.
I love hanging out with my friends. I’m so glad that I have a whole diverse group of friends that I can hang out with at different times for different occasions. The only down fall to having a large diverse group of friends means hanging out….a lot. Which means there’s not much time to sleep. I can sleep when I’m dead, right? But what if I’m speeding up the process? -__-
I don’t have all the answers. Sometimes I need advice from my oh so experienced readers. How do you handle your stressful moments?
