I have been kidding myself. I have been trying to bite off more than I can chew, and it is really getting to me. This blog started as a way for me to share my writing and thoughts, and has turned into something much more. It is my creative outlet - but also one that has been neglected for months.
My life has become increasingly stressful this past year with life as a "newly wed", a promotion at work, more travel, and more responsibilities. I recently received a time consuming calling at church and with teaching and freelance work and personal fitness classes - I am more overwhelmed than I ever remember being. Last night I got home at 11:30 from a busy day at work only to find my husband asleep with the light on and his textbooks surrounding him - trying to wait up for me to get home. The sad thing is, I leave for business to Vegas this morning and will be gone the rest of the weekend. I am spread so thin that I have neglected friendships and family and everything else in my attempt to "Do more", and I can no longer lie to myself.
I am going to continue blogging, but it can no longer be a priority. I have compared myself to other bloggers who seem to always have fresh content and parties and people to blog about - but at this time in my life that's not my focus. I would rather post less and post better. Thanks for reading, and sharing my life with me. I think as we all grow and our lives change we have to adjust the things we did before and make room for what is most important.
(and I think you will see me more often than you think.)
