Busy and Overwhelmed

I am overridden with guilt as I realize that it has been almost a month since I last posted. Definitely a far cry from my 3-4 post per week goal!  The story behind this? Well…I have spent the past few weeks finishing my first term for my Master’s Degree.  Between that, spending time with my family, and doing my “regular” job…blogging has fallen in priority.  I told myself that during my week break in between terms I would get back on track.  A week has gone by and I am not on track.  I find myself a little overwhelmed with everything that is going on right now.So where do I go from here?  I am going to stop feeling sorry for myself and get on with life.  During this busy time I am going to set a more realistic goal of 1-2 posts per week.  I would rather write fewer quality posts than simply fill up space with words that will only waste your time.  This will be my plan for the next year as I finish my Masters.

Sometimes a change in plan is necessary.  A BIG question to help with clarity in this matter is, “What do I need to spend less time doing?”  For me the answer was blogging.  I definitely do not spend inordinate amounts of time in this activity, but it is something that is expendable. There you have it!  The story behind my month long silence.

Have you ever felt really busy and overwhelmed?  What do you need to spend less time doing?  Share your story in the comments.  I think we could all gain encouragement from hearing how others deal with busyness.
