Life is busy–I wouldn’t have it any other way, but sometimes it’s important to take a moment to assess and shift priorities as needed. Here goes . . .
Family. Is my priority, but finding balance between being there for them and letting them fend for themselves is challenging.
Career. Almost pays the bills.
Second job. Helps almost pay the bills.
Writing. My passion and the focus of my life–when I can fit it in between family and work, which I’ve been managing to do daily, even if only for a few minutes.
Spirituality. Except for a prayer now and again, pretty much nonexistent. I’d like to meditate more at all.
Exercise. I love being fit and healthy, but I’m finding it impossible to find time to shop for, and to prepare, healthy foods and to exercise.
Blogging and Social Networking. Mostly consistent. Has helped me learn and grow so much as a member of the professional writing community, but I’m wondering if this is where I can cut back to make time to exercise.
Travel. Has become a bigger part of my life, and I’m glad.
Friendship. Sporadic phone calls between everything else.
Reading. At least two novels a week. Brings me joy and helps me improve my writing craft.
Television and movies. Barely.
Cooking. Anyone for takeout? Thank God husband likes to cook.
Pets. Keeping them healthy and happy, but I wish I had more time to take my little furry buddies for walks.
