Doing it all.

Whew. Is it really only Wednesday?

I know that means that tomorrow is Thursday, which is almost Friday, and then before you know it, it's the sweet weekend again...but it's just been one of those weeks.

Racing weeks. A week where I can't quite seem to get everything done, be everywhere I'm supposed to or would like to be...a week where I can't possibly do it all.
And that's hard for me.

I'd like to think that I can juggle the multiple balls of the different aspects of my life, but sometimes it just feels like there are too many. Something's gotta give. And I just never want that something that's gotta give to be precious time with my girl.

So I've been asking myself tough questions...what activities can I continue and what do I need to bow out of? What is manageable and what is too much? How do I find that balance?

I'm certain these feelings are not something new. I'm certain working mom's and stay at home mom's alike ask themselves these same questions every day, and on some level that gives me know that I'm not alone in these questions, these feelings and these challenges.

Because doesn't matter if I can't do it all.



I CAN do many things...and of those many things, the most important is being a mama. Her mama. And I pledge with every inch of my being do do it be present and engaged and make sure that she knows...with every inch of her being that she is the number one priority in our lives.
If I can do that, I am doing it all.
