Can I just vent for a moment? I promise I’ll try to make this short.
I had some great ideas for posts this week. And I was almost all set to publish, until I went into perfectionist mode and said to myself, “Nope. Can’t publish this. It’s not good enough yet”. And that’s frustrating. Especially when you’ve dedicated so much time to thinking and writing about it.
But in the end, something about it was off. The photos. They weren’t to the standard that I know I can reach. I’m not a professional photographer by any means, but I just knew I could do better than this. So I made the decision to hold off until I had a chance to re-shoot.
I blame this on time. There is just not enough hours in a day to do all I want to do. Between working, commuting, blogging, friends, errands, me time and whatever else, I’m having trouble distributing my time evenly. Parts of my life are overlapping–I’m worrying about work at home and I’m thinking about blog ideas at work! Everything is rushed and has tight time constraints (that I never seem to make). In fact, I’m breaking one of my rules about not blogging past 9pm on a weekday, which is exactly what I’m doing right now.
So I ask you, how do you do it? For those of you who have a lot on your plate, whether it be school, work, kids, pets…how do you fit everything into your schedule without losing your mind? Or are you just like me in that you haven’t figured out your groove yet?
