Do you ever feel?

Do you ever feel like your time and attention are being pulled in so many directions that there is no way you can do anything well--let alone everything?

Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try, you will end up disappointing someone, especially yourself?

Do you ever feel like even though you want to drop some of your obligations, you just can't bring yourself to do it?

Do you ever feel selfish for wanting to keep those obligations because the activities are things that help define you, even though you are doing a piss-poor job at them, and they are taking away from other things?

I don't even want to get into the list of things that are piling up around me, and the numerous ways I feel like I have failed at the things I set out to do. I just want to know I am not alone...

What about you?? What are the things that are weighing you down?

You are definitely not alone.

I feel like this (overwhelmed, pulled in all directions) all the time. I think what is weighing me down the most these days is just doing what we need to on our house to make it livable. There has been a big hole in the back of our shower for over 7 months now, and it isn't undone because of the money, we just don't have any time to make calls, get bids, and get it done right. Balancing momhood, career, and keeping things together in the home, is just so hard. And I think we tend to think we have to live up to some ideal standard of it all. I end up making a lot of compromises. You are definitely not alone.
