Deadlines, Dreams and Doing it All

4 thoughts on “Deadlines, Dreams and Doing it All”

  1. I understand this completely. I’ve often felt overwhelmed. I thought it was a college thing, but since finishing college and getting a full-time job: it’s not a college thing. It’s a life thing. And it’s hard to come to terms with that. I felt like I wasn’t balanced in college, but eleven months later, I’m thinking I was much more balanced then than I am now.
    However, I do have to tell myself to log off facebook or twitter (or pinterest) to give myself time and space to write. I make sure I read on my lunch break, no matter what, because otherwise I probably wouldn’t read at all. (Which is a sad thing to say.) And I need to start saying “no” to things. (And also realize I can’t do everything. Despite wanting to write on my blog every week, sometimes it won’t happen. And I need to be okay with it.)
    Thank you for the reminder and the encouragement. And also know, you’re not alone!

    1. Jaime, I’m not sure how I forgot to reply! I’m so sorry! Just another example of my unbalanced brain, I suppose. I always love reading your words. You have a gift for taking all my ramblings and summing them up. My new resolution is to read on my lunch break… I’ve lost too many hours mindlessly scrolling through social media for sure. I’m glad this post could encourage you a little- your comment definitely encouraged me. ❤

      1. I was honestly just thinking about your novel the other day. And I don’t care what I have to give up, I must beta read it. That is priority. ❤️ I’m honored to be on your reader list ☺️
