Overwhelmed anyone?

Sometimes I go from “totally good” to “SUPER OVERWHELMED!” in about 10 seconds. Anyone else?

I have so many goals that I feel like are really important and I want to accomplish them all at once.

The most exciting one for me is writing…but this entails more than just finishing my book. In a perfect world, I would be blogging 3+ times/week, speaking, reading and commenting on agent’s and author’s blogs, submitting proposals, meeting with women to talk through their stories and publishing some articles on the side. Um, how do I decide how those precious 1-2 hours each day will be spent?! How do I even prioritize them?!

I’m excited about running too, but time is precious and I’m nervous about the time commitment getting more intense as the marathon gets closer. It doesn’t help that I am clutzy and I get unexpected injuries when I try to jump hurdles in the house.

Then there’s the babes. I love them SO SO much…so between naptimes, working for Kev/writing (15 hours/wk), youth group, and date nights…I MISS THEM! I’ve heard it said before “I love them so much I could just eat them.” That’s pretty much how I feel. (especially when they’re being sweet….like in this pic 🙂

I always want to be spending more time with the Lord…and I don’t want to see this pushed to the bottom of the priority list either.


Authors/writers/speakers….I am equally impressed and perplexed by your dedication and accomplishment! HOW DO YOU DO IT?!

Oh, I think I’m also supposed to be Christmas shopping for 25 people?! And cleaning…cooking dinner? HAHAHA.

Just feeling a little overwhelmed by the world today, especially because it’s one of those days where the babes are taking turns waking each other up. NOT. COOL.

I think I need some holy yoga and deeper breathing in my life.

  1. Dear liv
    I love that you pour your heart out into your writing, Because I feel exactly the same way you do. I love that you write about everything that mothers feel but are too scared to write about because of their own personal perfectionism. I feel exactly the same way that you do on most days. I work part time as a nurse in a psych hospital, taking care of the house, the kids, and the rest of the family and everybody in between. What helps me is asking for help and putting off what can be done tomorrow:). I know it’s easier said then done. Thanks for your inspiring, honest, uplifting, encouraging words. Remember, you are not alone. We can take the motherhood journey together and help each other through. God bless you and your beautiful family;)
