I Feel like A Juggler
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
I feel like a juggler: balancing all these things up in the air, waiting for something to drop. In the air: kids, taking care of them, keeping track of appointments, feeding the pets, laundry, cooking healthy meals, keeping the house clean, work, maintaining a relationship with my husband. Friends. I feel like it's a demand to keep up with everything and it is overwhelming. My oldest has ADHD and this makes me feel like I juggle just her and her needs and behaviors in a completely other hand.
I am trying to find a way to balance it all. To think of what I can do for me. I realized I didn't once mention my own health and I should have. I need to make time for me. Even if it's a 30 mins walk I have to do it. If I don't take care of me- AKA the Juggler, these things will fall. I know they will since they have in the past when I've had surgery. For everyone, including myself, I need to think of me too.
