Well Hello Friends! It's been a couple of days, since I have been on my blog. I have missed it. I have thought about it often, and kept thinking about posting, but I am having a huge issue with balance the past couple of days.
Balance......seems easy enough. Right now we are in the slowest time of our life. By that I mean, the kids aren't playing soccer. We aren't running to practice a couple of times per week or games on the weekend. In fact, I haven't seen my children most of the summer. So why am I so unbalanced?
Well, let me tell you.
I work full-time outside of the home.
I'm a momma to two great kids. (No really, they're pretty great.)
I sell Scentsy.
I sell Velata. (Part of the Scentsy Family)
I like reality (trash tv).
I have 4 dogs.
I started running again.
Try to help keep the house running smoothly.
I like to read.
I like spending time with my friends.
Oh yeah, and I blog!
All of these things have taken bits and pieces of my time for one reason or another. I feel like I am spinning in circles, trying to balance it all, yet I feel like I don't do anything a lot of the time.
I need to keep up on my coupons, but I don't have time. I need to balance the checkbook more often, but I don't have time. I need to read book 3 of 50 Shades of Grey, but I don't have time. But in reality, I do. I just have poor, poor, poor time management.
In fact, I feel like I was cruising along pretty smoothly, balancing the fam (easy to do when we are down 2 kids), working, blogging (sometimes even blogging when I am supposed to be working - shhh don't tell on me!)
Something new came along and I started pouring my attention into it - allowing it to consume 2 whole days of my life. Leaving the blog, leaving the checkbook, leaving the fam (sorry guys), and even leaving work behind....
Scentsy itself isn't new, but they just announced their new brand last Thursday and I was intrigued.
Something new. Something different. Something that could be the reason I quit Corporate America.
Something else that is going to require time, attention, and balance.
I need to focus. I really need to get time management in order, because I don't want to fail. I want to be successful in my ventures. I have a down-line. A team that relies on me (well some of them do). I want to be a mentor, a friend, and a successful business partner to each of them, but I am unbalanced. I need to figure out how not just one, not just two, but 3 business ventures will fit into my life successfully. I have a great opportunity in front of me, but it will be tough to balance it all. I have put my Scentsy business on the bottom of the list many times, because I don't have time. If I could make the time, I could be very, very successful while working from home. People do it all of the time. I have 3 opportunities in front of me that could make this a reality to me, but I am scared.
You know what they say, "Jack of all trades, master of none." (I don't want to be that guy).
Just so you all know, I have worked on my coupons today. I have watched a bit of trash tv, and I have worked my Velata business a bit, I did my Couch to 10k workout, and I worked (really I did work) at my Corporate America job 95% of the day.
I'm working on being intentional with my time. I am working on balancing things out.
How do you keep your life balanced?
