Overcoming the Overwhelm ~ Narrow Focusing

Do you know what the definition of “overwhelm” is?  It’s actually quite eye-opening.  The definition is: “to bury or drown beneath a huge mass” Take a second and let that soak in. Have you ever felt that way?  Like life, emotions, work, motherhood…whatever it is, is smothering you?  Like you are being buried in a trench and you just can’t seem to find a way out.  Or maybe you feel as though you are drowning in a sea of emotions,…

Balancing Motherhood and a Business, Part I

working mom

So we have been on this balance kick lately, I’m not sure if you noticed 😉 One of the things that I struggled with at the beginning of starting this business was balancing everything and trying not to let mom-guilt get in the way.  I still struggle with it.  I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve found the way in which I manage my time to be effective.  It took me a while to get there,…
