Biting Off More Than You Can Chew

A banana peel on the ground. Never a good idea.

Wow. The past six or so months have been a little too crazy for my own good. The reason is that I bit off a lot more than I could chew. I’m still chewing and finally getting to the end of it all.

My husband and I started a new business, I was writing blogs, started doing some copyediting on the side of my already busy, draining job, tried picking up more yoga teaching gigs, was filming and posting one video on my YouTube channel per week, and trying to spend time with my husband and my family.

It became a little too much and I pretty much stopped doing everything all at once. I still had to work and I still had to continue working with the new business, but I definitely wasn’t as dedicated because I just crashed.

I kept thinking that if I scheduled every moment of everyday, then I could get everything done. However, that got old very quickly and if one task took longer than expected, or if I, heaven forbid, decided to make out with my husband, then my whole day was thrown off.

Instead of being productive, when you take on too much, your projects will end up subpar or you will completely drop something.

I’ve taken some time off blogging and YouTube, finished up some larger projects, and am figuring out a few other things, but I’m going to start being a lot smarter about my time and the projects I choose to take on.

I need to remember to take care of myself and that money isn’t the most important thing in the world. It’s the time that I spend with my husband and my cat that is what really matters.

Along with my sanity.

I’m still figuring out how to balance everything that is going on in my life and it’s going to be rocky for a while. I keep trying to schedule everything, but it hasn’t worked before. We’ll get through this, guys.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed that you literally just give up on all of it?

Comment down below with your experiences and any advice. Perhaps someone else reading this blog (or me!) will benefit from your wisdom.

I hope everyone is having a much calmer time.

Thank you for sharing your energy with me. Namaste.
