I never seem to have enough time to do everything that I need to do in a single day. I see other people balancing work and life and I just cannot seem to get it right. I have a lot of commitments this semester. Work, School, System Governance, Girls on the Run Coach, Running Club North Board of Directors, RCN and Skiing club commitments, not to mention my own training and family. I tend to end each day too tired, too hungry…and sometimes too cranky.
I need to figure out better time management. I am the type of person that needs some amount of down time to myself each day. I think I am going to have to give something up but giving something up causes great anxiety. Do I stop volunteering? Do I give up one of my positions in Governance or board seat? I really enjoy all of the work I do. I love my Girls on the Run group, that is something that I just will not give up. These girls are a group of the most amazing 6th graders I have ever met. I want to be a good role model and coach to them. They deserve at least that much.
My house is a borderline mess, which for me is saying a lot. My standards are pretty high, but its about time I realize that a little bit of unclean laundry or sink full of dishes is not the end of the world.
Next week is Spring Break, thank goodness. A week without school commitments and Girl on the Run (due to break) so this is going to be my week of getting my shit together.
I have my goal race for the Spring in less than a month, LavaMan in Kona, HI and I need to get my butt in gear and ready for it and the amazing days of vacation I get along with it.
And just like this kitty, I am going to just hang in there as best as I can. Spring is coming and along with that more time, more daylight, and more motivation.
