One of my sisters in law asked me what I will do with all my free time, now that I am no longer my own one woman sweatshop.
Short answer: finding balance
Recently I’ve been struggling to find balance in my life. People always ask me how I find time to run a clothing line and look after my kids full time. And lately, I don’t think i’ve been doing a very good job. Unfortunately, something always has to give – and lately it’s been my personal life. And that just isn’t right. My house has been more than usually pig sty like, the laundry has been even more behind than usual, the fridge was constantly empty and we were eating almost constant takeout, and my kids have been increasing in grumpy/naughty behaviour.
Which is why this change in the way I run my business was so important. I was coming to an uncomfortable decision – involving either changing the way I do things drastically, or throwing in the towel completely. Which is why I’m so thankful that I’ve managed to make the jump to the next level, rather than stopping all together – which in all honesty would have broken my heart.
Already this week I feel more relaxed. And you know what? My house is under control and the kids have been happier – I’m happier! The house is clean, and I actually baked the cake (from scratch!) for Buddy’s birthday. Balance is good!
