Trying to gain this "simplicity" in my life seems like a never ending battle. There is never enough time in the day...for anything! There are moments when I think I am going to completely lose it and then there are those times when I really feel like I have it together. Right now is not one of those times.
I know there are others out there that are feeling the same way as I am. How do I know this? I read your comments on Facebook...I read your blogs...I read. I think we're overwhelmed.
I am overwhelmed just thinking about it!
So what happens when we're overwhelmed. We shut down. We stop participating. We go MIA. Then the guilt inevitably sets in...at least for me.
Well, I can't feel guilty anymore. And neither should any of you! We try to do so much, be everything to everyone and cram so much into our days. Run...run...Run...run...RUN...it's crazy!
So what's a busy working woman suppose to do? What's a busy mom suppose to do?
Take a break...give yourself a break!
Stop doing...whatever...it's okay to slow down and take some time for yourself. Spend time with your husbands. Spend time with your kids. Spend time with yourself. And when you're ready to start in again with things, like writing or reading each others stuff, then ease back into it and do whatever makes you comfortable.
So despite the fact that I haven't written much for the writing prompts, it doesn't mean I am not thinking about any of you. I try to read your blogs and musings on Facebook whenever I can. But for now, just like some of you, I am taking it one day at a time, doing what I can in the moments I have available. The rest will just have to wait until tomorrow.
Oh! And the simplicity that I am longing for...as much as I want it all right now, I've realized that I am getting closer to it every day and even though today might not be perfect, it's definitely better than what I had before.
