My life is a bit chaotic right now. I am still trying to best figure out a good way of scheduling my business, motherhood, life in general! One thing that I am experiencing, that I know is nothing new to business owners, is the fact that I don't have a defined 'cut-off' time for work. I know full well that my success lies squarely on my shoulders...and that knowledge plus the mere fact that I love what I do makes it hard for me to create a work balance in my life. I feel like I could always do more.
To be honest its like this.....I have two young sons and we have to plan our schedules around them. This is not a complaint by any means, but it is a reality and so I try to get work in all over the place. This means many nights and weekends. My husband does not need much sleep and he is very much a workhorse. I, on the other hand, seem to need 9 hours of sleep to have his energy, which irritates the heck out of me because that amount of sleep is such a waste of time!
Okay, blah, blah, blah.....I know I'm rambling!! :) But, I'm lying here in bed with my laptop wishing I needed only 5 hours of sleep for superhuman energy (sans-caffeine!) so that I could put a good dent in my miles-long to-do list.
So these sublime photos from THE Ms. Martha Stewart that I found on her blog are just what I need at the moment. This one just stopped me in my tracks....
I adore these photographs.....they have a dream-like quality that calms and inspires me.
I'm off to sleep...
