So many things I want to do.
So many things I HAVE to do.
So many people I want to spend time with.
There’s never enough time in the day.
For example, these are all the books I have picked up in the last year (give or take a few). All have been read … chapters here and there … many not read more than a third of the way through.
Not because they aren’t great…simply because I am constantly distracted, always consumed by a life of children, house cleaning…(oh that laundry pile. LOATHE the laundry pile)…just to list a few.
Did I mention how life with twins makes it feel like I have many more children than I actually do?
I’m looking to regroup and organize my time so I have some days where things feel balanced.
ok, just less chaotic….where I actually make time to read and learn.
The teacher in me misses learning new things through reading books like those you see above. Those that teach me how to do my job well, those that share the life experiences of others and inspire me to live my life in a positive way and those that help me gain additional perspective on parenting so I can raise my daughters to be the best people they can be.
But, that balance thing, it’s elusive… I hear…or…so I know… and have experienced…quite regularly.
Just keeping things real.
But, I’m seeing a light at the end of my chaotic tunnel and I have hope to get all…ok, a select FEW…of the pieces and parts of my life in order. (don’t burst my bubble, M’kay?)
Obviously, I’m not fitting it all in so well and this stack of learning goodness is begging me to read. I sit myself in our room of books and stare at them while I sip my morning coffee willing myself to read and, just as I reach for one, it is then that little feet make their way down, (before 7am with princess dress in hand)…and thus begins the day of interruptions.
How do you organize your time? What tools do you use? I would LOVE to have new inspiration for fitting these things into life a little better.
