Accepting Reality

The harsh reality is- that there is no room in my life for all of my "addictions". There always has to be a choice between two options. The places I visit each day- Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook- that provide so much outlet, and inspire me and allow me to connect with my little piece of world. Or everything else. Homeschooling, housework, quality time with my children, my husband and Jesus, and just being aware. One or the other. They never function properly at the same time. I can never do both well. And after a week of allowing myself back into them, it is more clear than ever how that choice affects my life. Maybe some people can juggle the two worlds, but I can't. I keep dropping things. Important things. In both places.

So the delima continues. How can I stay connected and gather inspiration without loosing track of the most important people in my life and the things that require first priority in my day to day life? Where is balance?

One day at a time.

I will continue to try to make wise choices. To set priorities. To beg my self dicipline to find itself and show up on ocasion. Everything has a price. Learn to barter.

From DAD - "She's a really sharp girl. She's a good writer and an awesome communicator."

How on earth did you ever think you weren't????????

Haha. I'm not sure I was ever given the chance to think that I wasn't "amaaaazing". You and Dad were very faithful to pound that into our heads. ;) There was however, never any question about my spelling abilities...
<3 you both!

Yeah, spelling - not so much! ♥
