Deep Breaths and Tight Rope Walking

Coffee Cup & A Book

Right this second, I’m taking a deep breath.

A long, deep breath. Inhale, exhale.

There is so much going on in our lives right now that it’s been nearly impossible to get a blog post out – hence the quiet times here on the blog. Sometimes it’s nice to take a break, isn’t it?

When everything is going full force, to pull back from just one thing is a huge relief. But then I start to miss blogging – the writing, the interacting, the community, the fun of it all!

Sometimes I feel like I’m walking on a tight rope juggling stacks of items – like books and frying pans, paperwork and coffee cups – and there’s only one way to go on this wobbly tight rope, and that’s forward, towards an opening that’s too small for me to go through unless I crouch down and drop some of my shit.

    So so true. It’s hard sometimes to be a working mom & having all these different things that require our attention. All we can do is take it one step at a time & breathe.

    This is so wonderful that you can admit this and we all have to take a step backwards and reflect on what is really important! Deep Breathes!!

    Just take when step at a time, then there might come a moment when the steps become quicker

    I find that I am always doing this crazy balancing act! It is nice to sit back and take a break every once in a while.
