Off-Balance

It was my intention to create balance in my life this week, but it's after 10 o'clock, time for bed and all I've done is cook and clean, cook again, clean some more and prepare for another day.  Why does everything take so long?
I've also learned that my balance is way off when I try to take pictures of birds in the afternoon.  I actually have to lean against a wall or put my arms on something just to steady myself.  It's very hard to zoom in on a faraway subject and snap a photo at the same time.
 Tomorrow I'm going to balance the scale in the opposite direction.  Less doing and more time just for me.
 Goodnight from my side of the world!

I'm always juggling day to day trying to find balance...easier said than done. I think you need some 'me' time just to pamper yourself. Enjoy! I hope things balance out a little better real soon for you, Tammy.

Love and hugs,

Good morning, Tammy. Balance is what even I have been trying to create in my life but not finding much success there. That's a wonderful shot of the moon. I missed the full moon. I wanted to see it but totally forgot about it.

It sounds like a good idea to me Tammy. Finding balance when you're a mom and wife a daughter and friend is sometime a tricky thing to do.
nighty night sweet friend!

Hi Tammy,
I'm wondering what time it is in your part of the world, but any time it is, I hope it's a good time for you! Love your photos as always, they are just great!

Being a Mom and a wife is tough. Finding time for yourself while trying to manage a family is incredibly hard. Hope you take some time to take a deep breath, take a moment for yourself and find balance.

Yes, it's definitely difficult to keep everything in balance sometimes. I feel like that and I also know what you mean about not being able to steady my arms when trying to take a picture. I attribute that to too much typing/computer time (in my work and then again when I'm home).

Hope you're having a better day today,
Linda

Tammy- we've all been there! Seems like I have more days like that than I want to admit. Try hard to get back the balance-- it's important! But then again-- such is the life of a busy Mom!

Yes...balance is difficult...even me being retired find it hard. But you're smart to listen to yourself. I love the picture of that beautiful building with the moon overhead. Take care sweetie!

I pray that you get a little more time for yourself dear. I used to feel the same way when I was working outside the home, when I got home I never had time to really enjoy it, there was always so much to do! Now, long retired, I often wonder how I survived - it's so hard to be 'Superwoman'! Only problem now is wondering if I have enough time remaining to do all I dreamed about back then!!

You'll do just fine though - and all the hard work will pay off.

Sending you a hug and hope you have a lovely week.
Mary
