I can't juggle. But I am really good at juggling my life. I make a lot of life choices that get me in some crazy situations. I have a tendency to over commit and take on a lot of projects. But I like it that way. And somehow it all works.
I have decided to start a new blog. It's going to be all about my 100 year old home and remodeling and farmhouse decor and my obsession with collecting Rae Dunn and lots of DIY decorating projects. This blog is a result of my month long immersion in to everything related to "Fixer Upper" during my January Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I was just explaining my blog idea to my son (and his girlfriend) and they were excited for me but weary of the time commitment. I explained to them that as long as I don't let this become too big of a task and I treat it just like all of my other projects, then I will be just fine. Plus it is going to be so much fun!
Juggling everything in life works when it doesn't become overwhelming. If you just put your head down and get everything done then it's all good. But as soon as you start stressing and freaking out of what you have to get done then things will fall apart. I promise.
Planning is key. When I told my husband about my idea his only comment was, "Oh great, now you will have another blog post to do late at night". That was a very important comment. And a great clue that I need to finish my blog posts in the morning (or before he comes home). Which is such a great idea. So simple yet so smart. And I can't believe I didn't realize this sooner. Whew.
