welcome back. having my cake and eating it, too.

Well I guess it’s time to reintroduce myself. I took a brief hiatus from the blogosphere (is it even called that anymore?!). I didn’t mean to stop writing my blog. I would like to blame it on the busy-ness (or just the plain business) of my new job as a school administrator but the reality is that I became super busy at work AND I chose to neglect writing my blog. How often do we (mostly me) say that we just got too busy to __________ (fill in the blank with your favorite thing to do that you often put to the side when life gets busy, or stressful, or whatever)?

I know that I fill my proverbial plate with way too much work stuff (just ask the husband). When the helpings of work stuff begin to overflow my plate, I often push my servings of things I love to do to aside. The good stuff like blogging, running, reading for fun (if I remember what that’s like) often get sent to the (also proverbial) dessert plate as if they aren’t important. The truth is the things we love to do aren’t extras. They are just as important– if not more. It’s time to make my plate more balanced. I need to make the choice to balance it. After all, who doesn’t want to have their cake and eat it, too? But I won’t forget to count the points for that piece of cake :) more about that soon…
