Priorities and limits

En estos días he estado aprendiendo una lección en cuanto a prioridades y limites.  Es injusto pedirme a mi misma que trabaje a tiempo completo (y a veces el trabajo requiere más que las propias horas laborales para estar preparada) y después escribir miles de palabras en las pocas horas que me sobran para leer, hacer ejercicio, cocinar y disfrutar de estar con Ariel.  Algunas cosas, creo, que tienen su momento y debo ser realista para no volverme loca.

I gave up on NaNoWriMo because I'm trying to do too many things at the same time (it's kind of like giving up training for a race, it's not that you're not going to exercise any more, it's just that you've adjusted your goals to your reality.)  I'm trying to write every day and with our blog, Global Voices, the Literary Workshops and preparing for school... it's a bit much to try to do any more writing if I also want to read, get some exercise, and enjoy some other things.

Ariel is still at it...we're having fun, even though I feel a bit disappointed with myself.

Its so easy to try and do too much. When everything sounds like so much fun. You can still do it another day or another week or another year. At least that is what I tell myself.
