I Am…

In all the goings on that is my life… some things continue to make themselves clear. I have this overwhelming urge to sometimes scream. I have this sense of knowing who I am and what I want and really get annoyed when people try in any way to diminish that. I have on more than a few occasions wanted to remind people that I am grown.

I have a wealth of ideas that keep springing up in my head. So many that I tend to keep several note pads in rotation at all times. I somehow manage to gather these thoughts into ideas and ideas into projects. I end up with more projects than I have time for. My mothers says I’m not happy unless I have 16 things going on at one time. That’s partially true. I am a creator.

I have lots going on all the time but it’s because I have so much in me to get out. I want to make sure I follow through with the dreams that run through my head. I’ve been doing that. I’ve been loving that. I want to do more of that.

Then I realize how short the days really are. I’m a wife, mom, author, producer, etc. But even though my plate is full,  I am compelled to do more. Sometimes it seems impossible to get it all done, but I will.



I have been sick since last week and I started to think, “I should hire someone to help me with all of my stuff.” My friend told me that maybe I should have less stuff. Hadn’t even considered that. Not even for one minute.

Am I the only one with WAY too much on my plate?

    I loved this post especially in a lot of aspects I can relate. You are certainly not the only one with way too much on your plate. However, I often find it difficult to slow down and do nothing. I have been so busy for so long sitting still drives me bonkers!

    I find I have too much as well, but I feel like lessening my plate is nearly impossible. I do hate asking for help, though. That’s my fault.

    No I have way to much on my plate and I am always looking for ways to cut the load I have done so with the magazine so hopefully that will help me transition into new eras

    This is the plight of the ambitious! I always have too much going on but if it makes you happy to keep going, KEEP GOING. Feel better

    Definitely not the only one! I too find myself wanting to do so many things– but when I get too caught up in it then I end up not getting anything done, so I definitely have to simply and prioritize.

    you certainly are not alone. most times i feel i have far more going on in my head than than what’s actually on my plate. i’ve gotten much better in the area of focusing and prioritizing, but that doesn’t stop the ideas from flowing.

    and i’m all for smart hiring…go for it!

    I ALWAYS have a lot on my plate. But at the same time, I’m always hungry so I guess it’s appropriate. I’ve been busy ever since I started working full time, going to school full time, and most importantly, being a mother full time. And if that wasn’t enough, having another baby didn’t ease the load.

    But, I can honestly say that at the end of the day, even though I’m exhausted, it’s a good type of exhaustion. And I like that feeling.

    Hope you’re better. (:
