Do you ever feel like there's just too much sh** going on?
Like, you got your work or school stuff, then you got your life/personal stuff, then you might have some other stuff to do with hobbies or passion projects or... welp, blogging!
And you're trying to juggle all these things.
And you're trying to balance them, so that you're both well-rested, and productive, at more or less the same damn time.
...That sh** is hard!
It never seems to balance out, does it?
Like, you try to get things to an even level so that you can manage all of it, but then something comes along and throws your equilibrium all over again!
I guess there's only two things you can do: try your best, and remember that you come first.
As you may or may not know depending on how familiar you are with Nerd Church and/or Dora Reads, I don't mean 'you come first' in a selfish way.
I mean that you have to take care of yourself, or you won't be able to help other people or do whatever else it is you need to do.
(...As long as what you need to do isn't illegal sh** - nobody blame me for that, ok?!)
(I feel like I worry about accidentally inspiring crime too much... maybe it's the Anxiety... or maybe it's just me... *shrugs*)
That ambition of balance can be especially hard for those of us who've blended different parts of our lives together in some sort of life-stew.
(Yeah... I have no idea either...)
When you've turned your hobby into work, or work into part of your personal life, or a passion project into income, or income into a passion project, or whatever, then the lines get blurred.
(And sometimes you have to put EVERYTHING, including the blogpost you're trying to write on life-balance, on hold.
Because you have to chase your cats around the garden as they hunt a poor tiny little frog, only to have your boy-cat eat it anyway.
Because as adorable as they are, cats are ruthless little MURDERERS. #JustSaying.)
(Yeah, no, my day is so productive and restful.
No frog murder here. #Sarcasm.)
So when the different parts of your life meld into each other, the boundaries get fuzzy, and you have to be uber-careful that you give yourself time to chillax.
(Which is a lot easier if you don't have killer cats.)
Balance is tricksy, my nerdlets, and even when you have it, you don't have it for long.
Because life is constantly changing and throwing you curve-balls.
All you can do is react and do your best.
Because even if you don't believe it (guilty!) your best is totally good enough. Because it goddamn has to be!
OK, so this post took several unexpected turns (and one in particular, which you may have noticed, involving felines and amphibians.)
Hopefully you got my point though - assuming I had one. Which I can neither confirm or deny at this moment in time. 😅
