I know it has been a bit of a ghost town lately here. If you have been following my blog for a while, you already know that there has been a lot of craziness with my husband’s job and many other things as well. Last month was a crazy time for us in that I was sick, the kids had recital, we had to get our first homeschool portfolio and evaluation done, and my husband went back to Canada. Needless to say, I ended the month with taking a break from everything online while enjoying family time at Myrtle Beach as well as getting to know my awesome sister-in-law Jen better while doing it.
As of right now, my husband is in Alaska for work. We think he will be back in a few weeks. Who knows really? We have a summer exchange student from Spain with us. The website is still a work in progress. I am getting ready for two big giveaways. Oh, and I am moving my physical store location this month. Plus, we are having the kids’ birthday party tomorrow since last month was pretty crazy too. To be honest, I am a
little very overwhelmed. I have problems concentrating anyways, so having a pile of life stuff to sort through right now is a little daunting. Yet, I am sure I can do it. I may be a little slower, but I will work through it.
The other day I was talking to a fellow business owner who is taking a break from her business due to some other life issues. I told her that one of the things about owning a small business like hers or mine is that we can adjust things to fit what is going on in our lives, and it is true. I know that my business is what I put into it, and while sometimes it pains me to put things on hold because I know I am hindering myself, I also know that I am no good to my family, my friends, and even my customers if I am too stressed out.
I know some of you probably feel frazzled like me. I know it sometimes seems really hard to take a breather, but remember that you are only one person and not Superwoman, even though I have to admit, having super powers would be pretty darn cool.
What are you struggling with this week? What do you do to cope with stress? As always, I love hearing from you!
