Sometimes I wonder if it's just me. Everyone else seems to have it all figured out. How to balance parenthood and a career. Maybe I watch too much tv. Maybe instead of indulging in guilty pleasures like Real Housewives of Whatever, I should be sitting at my computer writing. Or perhaps my time should be spent networking rather than holding my sleeping baby for her entire hour long nap--while watching tv.
I've talked about and thought about my insecurity as a writer. Wasting way too many brain cells wondering if the only reason anyone asked me to write books was because I'd marketed the ideas so well. I used to be obsessive. I had a little trouble letting go of things. I worked on it, and by that I mean I spent many hours in therapy. Now I have the opposite problem--I can't get hooked in my career. I am like a tire that's just a little low on air--it still works, but you definitely feel a slight lag. So let's hear it-- what's your secret? How do you manage to have a personal life and a personal passion? Now taking any and all suggestions. I just need a little air because I'm pretty sure I don't have a spare in the trunk.
