My First Ever Blog
Sunday, December 11, 2011
I am a newbie to blogging and never saw myself doing it, but here goes.... I would like to give myself another venue for positive thinking and feedback because times can get really tough and I could use all the help I can get. I feel as if I try to be superwoman on a daily basis and there are days I grow just absolutely sick of all I put on myself.
I am a single parent and when it comes down to working full time, thinking about going back to school for myself, bringing my daughter around to all of her activities and getting all of her homework done, cooking, cleaning, juggling debt and finances on a tight budget in a horrible economy, and then being there for friends and family as well it gets exhausting. This is a stressful society to live in, and I definitely tend to learn things the hard way. I have had my share of rough days, but we all have. My point is, we could all use a little help sometimes. I want to be a better friend and listener, and I also am trying to learn how and when to ask for help because I never was too keen on this action before. I am so glad to have exercise as an outlet for my stress now because that in itself has made a huge difference. Anyone with any suggestions on how to balance all of these things feel free to add your advice. How do you balance work and home as a single parent??? This would be the big one. I also would like to add a few motivational quotes and pictures I found today that made me feel uplifted and I will be keeping handy. I am starting to get into the habit of surrounding myself with images like these. It helps to combat the negative feelings and stress I have been feeling. Much love and peace to all in your day :) -Sarah
