What I found myself thinking as I juggled Handshake commitments, participated in Occupation Artist performances, went to work as a nurse and then tried to have time for my partner, friends and family and time to myself was that I could be spreading myself a bit thin. I began to think if only there were another two days in the week i could fulfill my own expectations in all areas of life.

The reality – multiple projects on the go often means a compromise in one or more areas and can lead to a decrease in actual enjoyment and productivity in the creative process.  And did I mention the brain freeze and feeling exhausted.  It made me think of the book rushing women’s syndrome that I have in our bookcase but have never made time to read.

So what I will try to take from this, acknowledge and honor my own limitations and needs for work life balance and satisfaction before the next onslaught.
