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 isΒ 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 –Β 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.
