My boss at Omniture back in the day gave me some great advice. She said there is no such thing as balance in life. Rather, it's a juggling act. How true that is! I've always been one to think that we can make time for what we want. And sometimes that is the case. But lately I've learned that I can't do it all. That's hard for me. I can't cook healthy meals and keep the house clean and do fun activities with my children and be showered and ready after a good workout and have amazing scripture study and keep in touch with all my friends and family regularly, etc. etc. etc.
If I'm good at cooking and working out, then my house isn't clean. If I'm a good friend or sister, doing activities with my kids might get pushed to another day. If I'm in bed early, I don't get to blog and write down memories.
Life is a juggling act. I can't do it all ALL the time. And that is hard for me to accept. Life with 3 has been humbling that way. But I know that these days won't last forever, and so I'll keep taking one day at at time and try to be the best I can for everyone each day.
