Creative Free Writing
I want to start off by saying that even though this is an assignment for school, it feels a lot like journaling to me. So I will just free write for 7 to 10 minutes and express what is on my mind. I feel like "Balance" these days is SO important! I can't even stress it enough, particularly for me in my life. I often feel like there is just not enough time to do all that needs to be done. I am so glad and grateful that I am going to school right now, at this stage in my life, with the knowledge that I have at this moment. However, as a mom of two kids, in her thirties, with work, full time school, a partner, pets,etc; it is a balancing act! The thing about that is......I feel as though I must not be a good balancer. Maybe it's something that comes naturally for some. Women are suppose to be genetically great with multitasking. I can multitask all at one time but am not so good at time management. My longtime partner reminds me all the time. Sometimes my children are unsatisfied, as well. If only I could bilocate myself like I've seen in movies. Then I could be in more than one place at one time and how efficient would that be? I know this juggling act is the plight of many these days, but I can't help but wonder how everyone seems to be pulling it off better than me. Do I really have to buy a planner and start scheduling every minute of my day to effectively fit everything in? Will I resort to using the cliche of "I'll try to pencil you in"?
