I wish I could say that the past few months were a welcomed break. That I spent my time away from this space frolicking in fields with my family and getting awesome shit done. But the reality is, I don’t know what happened. Work got crazy, my baby turned into an energetic boy, and next thing I know I’m one of those “busy” people. Like that is somehow an acceptable answer when someone asks you how you are. It’s not. The thing is, we all get busy, we take on too much and then complain about it, when it’s mostly in our control. I have the added problem of incorrectly prioritizing when things start to inevitably fall by the wayside. Last year around this time I set goals for 2014. While some of the goals were met, the putting myself first was most definitely not. As a mother, I’m sure this is going to be a goal every year for the rest of my life, but let’s give it another shot for 2015. How do you find time for yourself amidst the chaos of life?
