I’ve been completely swamped and overwhelmed lately from taking on way too many pro bono projects on top of a full time job. I’m sure y’all know this feeling. It kinda feels like planning a wedding! You know what I mean? It’s like every time you cross off 1 thing from your checklist, 10 more pop up in its place.
And the worse part? Whenever I take a break, I feel guilty. As though I should be doing something. As a compromise, I’ve been trying to keep blogging posts short and sweet for the sake of my sanity, but I also feel like I’m supposed to be writing original, substantial content, and good budget tips & advice as I promised (I’m also trying my damnest to follow other bloggers’ advice to have a unique point of view and opinion, but should it be this difficult?). This blog started out as a creative outlet for me, but it’s starting to feel more like a part-time job you know? I feel like I keep falling behind if I don’t bust my ass to keep up with the wedding blogosphere.
Maybe it’s a matter of balance? I don’t know. I really gotta rethink what’s important to me.
I came across these images and they made me realize I miss what I see in that picture. And it’s kind of ironic that I’m appreciating that world from a photograph posted on a wedding blog, instead of just standing up from the comp, slide back the door, and step out to my backyard.
It’s time to toss the checklist. Do you remember what this day is really about? Let that sink in, and everything else will melt away.
