Or work in any time to de-stress?
I'm a military wife, SAHM and a photographer. My schedule is always hectic and I always seem to be rushing to try and fit everything in. It gets so overwhelming at times that, while I love what I do, there are moments when I don't even want to crawl out of bed, lol. I'm horrible at time management and I have this awful pension to try and please everyone and of course, that never works. It may for the various people I'm trying to please, but not 100% of the time and certainly never for my own health & peace of mind. I say "YES!" to everything before I've even thought about what effects it will have on me which is a horrible habit that I've been actively trying to break. It's going okay, but now I need to work on managing my time more efficiently so that I can actually be here for my family when they need me &/or take care of myself instead of focusing all my energy on working ALL THE TIME. I don't want my passion for photography to turn into just another stressful workload or deadline that I have to fulfill - I want to enjoy it! If this sounds familiar to you, I'd love to hear how you coped :) Thanks!
