So proud

Yesterday my good friend/soror was featured on Tell Us USA in honor of Women’s History Month.    She is a wife/mother/author/business owner and an all around GREAT person.  She has just written her first book Always Believe which is a motivational book written for young girls.  She is also the owner of Soul Support which “motivates working wives and mothers to stop making excuses for not living the life they want and empowers them to reach their definition of success.”  For more information on the book visit Always Believe.  I also encourage you to check out Soul Support.

Way to go Marlin.  I am so proud of you!

Too much

Have you ever had one of those days when you said to yourself “it’s all just too much!”?  You know that feeling you have when everyone and everything is demanding of your time and undivided attention and well it’s just all a bit much?  Well I was/am/have been having one of those days/weeks/months.  With all of those hats I am wearing (wife/mother/business owner/full-time employee/volunteer/friend/daughter/sister…you get the picture) it is/has starting to get to me.  It would be great if there was an off switch or heck I would be happy with a pause button that I could use from time to time, just to put things on hold so I can catch my breath…at least for a minute or two.   Now I must be honest with you and say that I am 100% the blame for this feeling.  You see I am a “people pleaser” …yes I said it…I like to please people.  I also have a hard time with saying the word “no”.  Both of which have caused me to be in this current state of feeling like I am being pulled in every direction at once.  I know what I need to do to prevent this from happening again….but what about now????  I have already done the damage (over committed myself) so I just can’t drop the ball and say “oh sorry guys, but this just isn’t working for me so I’m not going to do it”.  No, that wouldn’t be the responsible thing to do.  So I am just going to have to grin and bear it…at least for a little while.  There is however a light at the end of the tunnel.  I have a trip planned to Michigan next weekend that I am looking forward to.  I will be traveling alone to spend the weekend with my sorority sisters to celebrate our 18th anniversary.  It has been a few years since all 8 of us have been together and I am looking forward to seeing everyone.  Being with them is always fun and we always have a great time.  I think the time away from home and with my girls is just what I need to recharge.

I wear many hats

In addition to being a wife, mother, and full-time employee…I also own an event design/planning company

So you see I wear many hats and they all fit me perfectly.  What about you?  What hat(s) do you wear?
