When I first sat down to write this post, I titled it “Better Late than Never,” rather than it’s about time, only to find that I’d already written a post with that exact title. I had a whole clever opening about how, given my lack of timely posts, I should change my name from The LA Survival Guide to Better Late Than Never. Guess I’m not as clever as I thought. Hmm. Despite my disappointing miss at creativity, I think today’s blog post is one that many of you can relate to- time or, more specifically, the lack there of. I am finding that I do not have enough hours in the day. The easy answer would be to sleep less but to know me it to know how much I
love need my sleep. So that’s obviously not an option. But between regular work, blogging, maintaining some semblance of a life and, oh yeah, having a little downtime, I am not getting it all done. I constantly feel like I’m letting something or someone slip by and it’s incredibly frustrating. Do you guys ever feel this way? What’s a busy girl to do? For starters, I’m attempting to give myself a break. If I want to watch Netflix one night after work instead of working on my blog, I’m allowing myself that. But, I’m also reminding myself that, with as busy as I am Monday through Friday, I need to make better use of my weekends. A little less relaxing and a little more writing. It’s all about balance. Or so I like to tell myself.
