Super sunny days are becoming more frequent. So much so that it’s driving my need to get outdoors more than ever. I love exploring nature, as well as visiting museums, discovering different artists, and visiting places I’ve never been before. Doing what I love is definitely becoming a balancing act! Working a full time job, doing photography on the side, blogging, parenting, all while trying to study is a balancing act for sure. It takes a lot of energy and hard work. Which brings me to the question, can we do it all? Can we do what we love, and be good at so many other important roles in our lives?

I struggle with doing my best at everything I do, which sometimes leaves me feeling drained. Do you ever feel that way? Like you are spreading yourself too thin? Well how I’ve been able to raise a son as a single parent, graduate college, and still be able to do the things that bring me happiness is by getting help from loved ones.
There was a time when I didn’t want help from anyone. I wanted to do it all on my own. All that got me was a panic attack during college that almost had me riding in an ambulance. I learned that I can’t be Wonder Woman, although I try. :)) So to answer the question, “Can we do it all?” Yes, we can do anything we set our minds to. We just have to be creative, and have a supporting group that is more than willing to be there for us. To all my friends and family that have helped make my life all that much richer by lending their time, I am eternally greatful. Of course I will do the same for them in a heart beat, and I have. I truly believe it takes a village!
