That I’m writing this at 3:30 am is a testament to my struggle with finding balance. I am guilty of thinking about things too much, that my mind is too restless. It is a cacophony in my head. I am driven by my passions that in turn drive me to distraction. As I started in on this entry, I started jotting down notes, that started to look like an outline which was good until I began to realize that it was looking more like an outline for a book or even a series of books as opposed to a single journal entry.

What do I do for a living?

Having the right tool can make all the difference but then again there’s much to be said for being resourceful or making due with what’s at hand.
Paleo-diet, localvore, gourmet , “Slow” food, to eat to live or live to eat
Home schooling my daughter is what takes up the majority of my time and yet gets the least airplay as it were. This is due to respecting my daughter’s privacy and provides for yet another balancing act.
When I work I must make to-do lists, prioritize them and allocate resources to be able to check things off that to-do list. There are many more parameters to my goals and responsibilities in my professional life as opposed to my personal life which makes it possible. The lists in my personal life grow far beyond my resources and so I find myself in a Sisyphean struggle to have my reach exceed my grasp.
And with that, I must stay good night or perhaps good morning and get back to the tasks at hand.
