If someone’s passion comes before all else in their life, they’ll make things happen. That’s the belief, right? Wrong. It’s wrong for me personally, anyway. I’d be blogging a lot more if I could. My “schedule” is twice a week, and when it’s working, it’s amazing and I’m always super proud of being able to achieve it. I say schedule because at times, other things get in the way. My blog unfortunately is placed on the back burner when that happens. I’m not afraid to admit that I don’t always have time for my blog. I MAKE time where I can, which makes all the difference. And I’m not a bad blogger because of it, either. Today, I’m going to be real with you. I’m letting you in on why I’m not blogging as much as I’d like to be.

My Life Balance Is All Out Of Whack
Yup, you right that right… Life is completely unbalanced. And it has been for quite some time. I’ve been working in my current job for about eighteen months now, and that’s when my blogging consistency began to crumble. With a long commute, even longer hours and what can be a pressured and stressful environment, sometimes I don’t have the time or energy for it. Time in particular. Right now, my day goes like this: Get up at 6AM, get ready, travel two hours to work, start at 9AM, finish at 6PM, and travel two hours home. I need all the sleep I can get to face the day, so I have a grandma bedtime of 10PM. This gives me two hours to get home to do what I desire: AKA have dinner, shower and wind down. And just like that, the day’s over again, with little-to-no creativity or productivity.
And I hate it.
It’s gotten to the point where I’m wishing for more than 24 hours in a day. Or that I didn’t need to sleep. Or that I earned a Euro every time that I breathed… Etc, etc. I need to find a way to make my life more balanced, which I’m going to be working on for the rest of this year. There’s courses that I want to do, I’m learning to drive, I have a cat to fuss over… So many priorities that keep getting shelved, and I’ve had enough. I’m hoping to be back really regularly after this post, but if I’m not, at least now you guys understand why. Thanks for reading!
