The Balancing Act

People always ask me how I manage to balance it all. With being a mom, working full-time, and having a blog (and all that comes with it). I usually just laugh off the question, because I don’t really feel like I am doing a good job of balancing at all – I always feel like I should be doing so much more and there just isn’t enough time. I wish I could focus on any one of my interests full-time, and actually have some free time to not think or worry about what I should be doing. Sometimes I feel like I am neglecting my real job that actually pays the bills, and sometimes I feel like I’m neglecting my Adam or even my husband, and sometimes I feel like I am neglecting my blog and I should be posting much more often and spending time brainstorming and coming up with great content. All this worry has been taking a toll on me and I have to constantly remind myself to stop and take a break once in a while. 
 Why is it that the one thing you should be doing is always the hardest? Like smiling when someone is trying to cheer you up, or not eating that second, third, or fourth potato chip when you are trying to eat better, or actually falling asleep when you have a big event going on the next day. Everything you should be doing is always the opposite of what you are naturally inclined to do. *Sigh* I digress.
After I wrote this, I went on a bike ride with Tom and Adam, and I swear I felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. It isn’t healthy to live in your head, that’s for sure. Get out there and taste some fresh air and get some exercise. I wasn’t really in the mood to go at first, but the weather was so gorgeous I couldn’t resist. I am so glad I did! I might not be balancing it all perfectly, but my best should be  is good enough!
About the look, I wore this for work on casual Friday. I usually stick to dark denim and quieter colors for work, but I decided to lighten up my denim and pair with a neon yellow blouse. I added the boyfriend blazer in a neutral tone to balance it out. I’d wear this on the weekend with flats and maybe lose the blazer and roll up the sleeves.
