I had intended to blog at least once a month and have found my intentions are weak at best. Not because I am lazy or undisciplined, but because I have a business that requires most of my time and a family who does as well. There’s that icky problem of balance once again. It is something we all seem to chase after and sometimes, in sporadic moments, achieve it. I always visualize the juggler with too many balls in the air or the spinning plates whirling on top of sticks…you young ones more than likely can’t picture the latter…showing my age
Being a perfectionist at heart creates a dilemma when it comes to balance. I still get caught up in the “If I want it done right I have to do it myself” mentality. Of course I have learned to delegate more lately with only a small amount of angst.
The details of my floral design will always take precedence over outside pressures as I have a reputation to maintain and clients who are counting on me to WOW them. In the wedding industry there aren’t any “do overs”!
My name is attached to every single blossom I present and it has to be gorgeous.
I am still thrilled to be following my dreams, and working with flowers is definitely my passion.
I have been intentional as the years marched on with taking time off to be with my family and not miss important milestones with my kids. Of course every once in awhile it happens and the Mommy guilt kicks right in and cuts deep.
All I know about balance is it is something I am constantly running towards. If I happen to catch it, keeping it is almost impossible.
That’s all my thoughts for now…no promises that I will be here more often just acknowledging I have been amiss for quite awhile.
Love the one you’re with and be thankful for another day!
