I have so much to do, I am definitely wearing too many hats, and through it all I am feeling like the grumpy child, alone in the backseat of the van.
You may know that feeling. While you are sitting back there, it seems as if everyone else is up front having a party. So you have a little pity party of your own. My Etsy shop seems to have hit a plateau. I can't seem to increase my sales. My booth isn't doing as well as I had hoped. My blog isn't generating as much income as I want. I don't have enough time to promote on social media as I want...............my sister has just been diagnosed with a super bug that she apparently got from taking an antibiotic and this is definitely not one of those times I can say NO. I have to help her.
So I am taking a deep breath. I am making a list like my dad always told me to do. I am sitting down and prioritizing. I am figuring out how to use my time better without beating myself up. And through it all I promise myself to stop and just enjoy the moment as I walk down this path called life.
Because having the most followers on Pinterest, or Facebook, or Instagram isn't what I am going to remember at the end of my life. What I will remember are the moments with my family, the times of enjoyment I felt, the little things.
Most of all I am going to remember the love. Those simple and spontaneous times of pure affection. Yep, I think I can relax now. I'm definitely getting my priorities in order.
