I've also been doing quite a bit of soul searching lately as I've been feeling disappointed with myself for not accomplishing the amount I want to during the day. I've been comparing myself to other mum bloggers, those in a similar position to me and I find myself reading their posts & thinking how on earth do they get so much work done in a day when I can't? I physically can't get any more squeezed into my day unless I get some more help or I don't sleep- so how on earth are these other people doing it? Then I realised I had already answered my question. Sleep less or get help- its that simple! I regularly end up going to bed at 12 or 1am just to keep on top of things so surely other people must be facing the same issues? I think they are but they are just not blogging about it. So I've decided that I will blog about it. After a little researching I found that there are Mummys out there struggling to maintain a balance between being a mother & running a business. I have also just finished a business e-course with Creative Thursday & I got to read about other mum's experiences on this topic & it confirmed my suspicions that I was being too hard on myself. This in turn has inspired me to do a series of "day in the life of" posts whenever I can on a Monday- Mummy Monday :). I have found these sort of posts comforting and inspiring in the past where I get to glimpse into other people's daily lives and see what a typical day looks like for them. The first post will be this Monday & if anyone would like to participate it would be great to hear from you!
I also have some new work to show you- a new card range I've been working on so I'll be posting again soon. Hope everyone's having a good week & thank you so much for bearing with me, I appreciate it :)
