A chronicle of the ups, downs, and in-betweens of my thirty-something life. Seeing life through many different eyes...parenthood, step-parenthood, marriage, approaching middle-age (argh...can't this one wait), all while attempting to find my significance in this world.

Am I there Yet?

Have you ever felt like that hamster in a cage running on that exercise wheel? Running and running and running but not going anywhere? This is has been my life’s challenge in my 30’s. Busying myself into a frenzy but not moving. I clear my plate and then slowly but surely, one at a time, I start adding things and before I know it BAM! I’m right back where I started with too much to do and not enough time to focus on any one project to make any significant impact. I think this is a very common pot-hole that women fall into. We are great at multi-tasking so we ask ourselves, “Why Not”? I can handle this. Until there comes a point that we can’t. Usually this is not something we want to share with anyone. “I Need help” is not in our vocabulary. This equates to “I am a failure” so of course we try and try and try again. My continuous goal is to focus on projects I can handle and work on asking for help when I need it. I think we all want to make a mark in the world and we all want to be significant so this will be my journey with you.
