Balancing Life

Updated: Nov 11, 2019

I hear people complain about not having enough time in the day to get what they want to done. I hope you don’t think I am writing to tell you your specific answer. I don’t have a magic wand that can make more hours in the day appear. What I do have to say is that you already know the answer, if you really what for it to happen you will make time. You can make that as simple or as hard as you want on yourself .

I find myself in aww of so many people that have a discipline exercise routine and are an entrepreneur or the moms & dads that have a great family life and do what they do for a living. I wanted to a second to recognize how hard you work to make this happen, you all are doing amazing. I look up to thes kind of people, I try to surround myself with as many friends & mentors as I can that can chose to prioritize many things at once. I have a wide verity of interest that I want to try & I think many people have ambitions to do test some of these out, but the constant tasks to do them are more challenging then they leads off to be. The people that try to do it are not balancing they are choosing. I counted the other day how many hours I work & I am in class & doing homework…it’s a lot but somewhere in there I found the time to go to counseling. I had been thinking about if for a while & I knew it would be a lot of mental work but it is also something that would affect me deeply.

I have learned the hard way that I’m not going to have time to do everything I want to do every day of my life, I have to face the cross roads of what is more important & takes presidents. Some days that choosing to take a whole day to see my family at home recognizing that there is always going to be something else going on that I could be doing or that I might be missing if I went. But, family is a high priority and I know that I will want one of my own someday (very far off) in the future for me so I have making an effort to distinguish what I value in a relationship. I recognize that the kind of things I value take time to build and develop. During this I want to make sure that I am being kind to myself because it is A LOT of trial and error.

If you are in a similar situation of prioritizing what to put on your plate, I hope you know it is going to be okay. Allow yourself some slack to make mistakes & know that this is a difficult thing but it is your choice & Know that I believe in you. I am here for you & I appreciate you
