Today I want to talk about balance, as in I’ve been struggling to find it lately. I’ve found it really tricky to juggle everything. Things seem to fall to the bottom of the list lately, things that are important to me, and it drives me crazy. For example, I only posted twice this week. I hate that. I want to be able to consistently provide content of which I am proud. I don’t want to post just for the sake of generating new content, but I also don’t want to just disappear from the radar. It’s a really tricky balance to achieve. And, of course, I got wrapped up in photoshoots this week. Photoshoot days are long, let me tell you. At the end of them, I am always so totally pumped about the amazing projects I’ll be able to share, but I also don’t feel inspired to do another post. Like I said, it’s a really tricky balance to achieve. I can’t even get into how personal life fits in with all of this. Let’s just say, I am practicing taking care of myself, but often find that my personal relationships suffer when I get busy with work. Last night I had a (scary to me, but not really a big deal) health event occur that forced me to pause and take care of myself. I guess what explains all the deep thoughts this afternoon.

I know a lot of you balance tons of stuff — work, pet projects, motherhood, hobbies, travel, etc — so tell me, how do you prioritize and balance it all?
