False Start – The Daily Writer

You may have noticed that I didn’t get started with my responses to the exercises in The Daily Writer by Fred White yet. Why? My husband’s grandmother fell and broke her femur on Thursday, and I dropped the ball on my writing to take care of family business. Family is more important, and always comes first for me. I will start the exercises when we reach a state of equilibrium again.

I feel like a lot of the events that have taken place in my life this year have been opportunities for me to drop the ball on one thing or another. One of my problems is that I’m very much the “all-or-nothing” type of ADD individual. I haven’t just dropped the ball on one thing, I’ve dropped the ball on EVERYTHING for the past few months. I am terrible at finding and/or maintaining balance in my life. I know I need it, but I’m just not sure how to get there. I could use a little help trying to balance things.

In the past, I’ve been known to go through cycles of dropping everything in my life to focus on my writing and periods of completely sacrificing my writing to focus on the rest of my life. There has to be a middle ground, and I could use some help getting there.

I’m happily married to the love of my life now and dropping everything to focus on my writing is no longer feasible or possible. I could really use some advice on how to balance my personal life, my scholarly life, and my writing life. I’m sure it’s obvious that time management is not my strong suit.

Can someone please help me figure out how to juggle everything without being a hermit, and still find time to get sleep in the process? Any and all advice is welcome.
