Balancing Your Life

behind-the-screen1

One of my biggest issues is trying to juggle a million different things at the same time.

Lately I feel like every time I’m about to get settled into posting things for this blog, a light bulb goes on in my brain, and I’m full of even more ideas. I have to keep saying, “Whoa Mariam, slow down… you have plenty of time!”

There are so many things I want to incorporate into the blog, but I will try my best to do it step by step.

I don’t want to overwhelm you the reader, and at the same time I don’t want to overwhelm myself. :)

I have a 2 year old daughter, Sarah, who takes up my time 24/7 and sometimes I can’t get to posting at exactly the same time every day.  I’m also pregnant with baby number 2, so there are days when I’m just too exhausted to deal with the computer.

I want to try my best to do most of my work while Sarah is sleeping because the other day she went over to the computer and started pretending to type. I asked her what she was doing and she said , “One second mama, I have to make a post.”

Wow. Kids really pay attention.

And it made me feel a little guilty. I guess that’s something mom’s always feel no matter how much time they spend with their kids.

So, how does one balance life? Whether you’re a student, a full-time employee, homemaker, etc.

How can you make sure you get your work done as well as all those little extras? Do any of you have tips?
