about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it…
Find a balance in life.
And the irony of it all is that I don’t even have a full-time job. Although, I am convinced that if I did, I wouldn’t be so busy, because I would have an excuse to say no without hurting people.
Today is a perfect example…
I was up most of the night with a coughing baby.
I called the doctor first thing for an email prescription.
I had breakfast with SJ.
I cancelled a morning beach walk with friends.

And my night isn’t over…
Are you tired yet? Because I am exhausted.
I am a people pleaser and I struggle saying no.
This leaves me with endless tasks, dates and things to do each day. I also do things for myself and my family.
I am trying to be better. I am prioritising.
I am trying to balance life.
