Morning sun on the Rosamond hills - such a beautiful surprise in my rear-view mirror!
I am a busy woman. We all are, but I feel like I have a hard time keeping all my plates spinning. Invariably something is always falling by the wayside, as I focus on something else.

Using my new macro lens - which I want to do more of!
Lately with all my focus on photography, my real job has been suffering, as has been my weight loss journey on Weight Watchers. This last week was especially bad in the eating department. Somehow, I have to figure out how to keep it all happening at a pace that will satisfy my Weight Watchers goals, my actual real job, and my delving into photography. That doesn't even include my family time, housekeeping, music responsibilities at church, relationship with God, and chauffering my daughter to dance on an almost daily basis.

Spring Tulips!

I envy those people who seem to be able to do it all, but I wonder if they really are or if they just hide it like I do. Let me just tell you, I would be horribly embarrassed for someone to drop by my house right now, but I did get a lot of work done today (for my real job).

Balance? I don't know. Yesterday was a great day at church and I got some photography stuff done, but I did hardly any work for my real job (which I should have). Oh, and I took a nap (which was much needed, I might add). My eating has also been a little better - at least I am actually tracking it all. That was where I have been lacking the last couple of weeks.

Today I also need to do some research before I can give pricing info to a prospective wedding client. I did some shopping, and delivered work to my boss. Hopefully, I can get the research done while my daughter is in dance class! Thank heaven for McDonald's with Wi-fi and non-fat sugar-free French Vanilla lattes!

This journey I am on is interesting and I am learning to just take each day and get as much out of it as I can. The tyranny of the urgent is always present, but sometimes I don't think that's such a bad thing. I tend to work most effectively under deadlines. I just have to take some time each day to feed my soul - with God, beauty, music - and try to keep all these things in balance while I do that!

  1. I am excited that you have a potential paying job! That is cool.

    It is hard to keep the plates spinning. But, those of us that do know that we have to keep that "outer composure" plate spinning, too!

    Keep sharing your photos. I love looking at them. Feeds my soul!
