How To Get It All Done: A Busy Mom Following Her Dreams

getitdone

People ask me all the time how I manage to home school, cook dinner, be an awesome friend and write.

I have one thing to say on this subject: you/we/I find time to do what is important to us. PERIOD! When I am on a diet, exercise and food prep are super important and I carve out things like Facebook browsing, playing the piano and reading my emails for that goal.

When the juices are flowing for my writing, ALL I can think about is getting that story out, so, TV, listening to books, long extravagant talks with my husband, evening activities all bend to the all-encompassing iron that is story telling.

We do what we love, we do what inspires us, we fill our time with things that matter to us. After the kids are in bed, after the frantic inhale and exhale of the day has calmed, what you do is what you love most. And if you read this and say,’ no, no it’s not, I love this or that way more but I just don’t have time’ I will call you on your crap because you do what you love. If you loved it you wouldn’t let it die inside you.

I hope this inspires you all to turn off the TV and dust off that thing you love.
