Tipping The Scale

I am an entrepreneur, a blogger, and a mother. If I am being completely honest with myself, I know that the most important parts of my daily life are my child and husband. It’s hard, however, to find the balance between all the different parts of my life, and it is something that I am currently still trying to figure out.

Take my recent absence from the internet as an example of my internal struggle. Last week, I was so involved in the internet community that I felt as if I wasn’t spending as much quality time with little Danger as I could be. This manifested into guilt, fear, and self-doubt. My solution? To peel my eyes from the screen and my fingertips from the keyboard and instead wrap my arms around my child. My reality? I was so preoccupied with concern over my internet absence and the consequences of inaction that I was more than a little grumpity.

Ah, the joys of trying to do it all and be Super Mom, on top of everything else!

I am also an entrepreneur. I make things and then I sell them. Fun stuff. Owning my own business has always been a dream of mine. I am a self-made woman and I truly do believe that I am a better person for setting high goals for myself and trying to obtain them. At the same time, I fear that working on my business is hurting the amount of time that I am able to spend working on my blog and cuts into the time I spend with my child.

Is there a way to do it all and still have dinner on the table promptly at 5:30 p.m. or am I deluding myself? As a bloggy mom, how do you find the time to devote to family if you are preoccupied with finding relevant material to share with your readers and increasing your exposure to the world? How can a mother create balance if the scale is tipped so far in one direction?

    I think alot of mommies struggle with this. Balance!! Such a little word but alot of impact!! The key maybe is to find what makes you happy. If momma is happy then everyone is happy!! At least that is the way it is in our home. 🙂
    Much love

    • That is so true, April. I love writing, communicating with others, and making the things that I sell. I also love spending time with my daughter. lol Why is it so hard? 🙂

  2. Ahh, we’re all in the same boat. Balance doesn’t come easy.
