Crazy Train

I woke up at 4:00 a.m. today with the chorus to Crazy Train racing through my head faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive.  "I'm going off the rails on a crazy train, I'm going off the rails on a crazy train."  Why?  That's a great question.  I'm guessing it's because I'm going off the rails on crazy train.  Too many things, not enough time.

I don't pretend to be superwomen, I just have a tendency to follow my passion and take on too much responsibility.  I introduced my blog to my friends on Facebook yesterday and got lots of great feedback.  Some very sweet comments that I very much appreciated.  There were two comments that resonated with me. 1) "Your time management skills must be over the top" and 2) "Do you stay up 24/7 doing all this?" 

So it got me women and as moms so many of us tend to spread ourselves too thin. I do do do until I physically can't do anymore.  That's not the right way to do things, I know, but it works for me OR does it?  I'm pretty sure it doesn't.  I love all the things I do; being a wife, a mom, a hard worker, a blogger, etc.  All these things don't make me Superwoman or anymore special than you.  They make me, well "me."  I think that balance is the key ~ I'm trying to find that balance.

"Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away."  - Barbara DeAngelis

 Stay balanced,


  1. Yes, it is hard to stay balanced, that is the challenge we all face, I'm sure! Good post! Came here from your recommendation at Blogaholic ;)

  2. I think that learning to balance everything important in life is one of the most difficult aspects of being a human being, I often feel that no matter how much I try to divide I will still feel that I havn't given enogh of myself, my time, my attention to one aspect so insted I have learned to say what or who needs me most right at this moment. I have had to learn to look at what I am doing a one moment and say is something else more important right now!
    I know all about spreading myself thin, WAY too thin but that is a choice I make, like you said it's what makes me "ME"!
    Great post! You should also list your blog under "inspirational" for sure!
