#thejuggle: How Life is Like Salt Water Taffy
Do you ever feel pulled in fifteen directions at one time? I do. Constantly.
Just today, for example, I simultaneously had a conversation with my son about what new Angry Bird games he wants, practiced ballet with my daughter, cooked father’s day brunch for the family and was still trying to close that record deal.
I am not kidding. And it is like this all the time.
While trying to juggle so much, I feel like I am always letting someone down.
I rationalize #thejuggle by telling myself it is temporary or for a greater purpose. Or quality and undivided attention makes up for quantity. But to be honest, sometimes even I don’t believe these excuses.
Nonetheless, conviction in my goals, a strong sense of purpose, and drive keeps me moving forward.
A strong support systems and special moments don’t hurt either. Tucking my son in tonight he said, “Mommy, today was the best day ever.”
Now that just made it all worthwhile. #grateful
So remember, like salt water taffy, if you do #thejuggle, you’ll be stretched, but you won’t break. promise.
Ps – are you doing #thejuggle? I would love to hear your story and what keeps you going.
