RX for the Soul

“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”
-Stephen Covey
I found myself repeating this quote over and over again last week.  It has become my new mantra.  There are so many things that I need to do for my family right now, and I am having a hard time balancing those things with my need for “me” time.  Since moving across country has taken my children away from all of thier life long friends and comfortable routines, I am scrambling to find ways to set up a new support system (for all of us), before the reality that we are all alone out here, really has a chance to sink in.  There is a new church to find, new friends to gather, new doctors and dentists and schools.  In the meantime, I am fortunate that hubby has figured out a way that I can stay at home (not work outside the home) for at least a couple of months so as to get all of these things accomplished, and although I am extremely grateful, I am feeling a desperation to do some things for myself that I know I wouldn’t have the time (or energy) for if I was working right now.  Like this here blog.  And my Etsy shop.  I have wanted to do both of these things for a long, long time and have been working for months getting them set up. And although that wasn’t easy to do while working and going to school and taking care of a family, it was rewarding.  And meeting so many other bloggers and fellow Etsians that are making the time for it, despite busy schedules, encouraged me to continue on.  But now I feel it is time to take it to the next level and really put myself out there.  And that is where the struggle begins.  How do I find the time to do everything, in the relatively short amount of time I have to do it in?  How do I balance family needs with my own selfish wants?  I just keep telling myself that the “main thing” has always, and will always be, my family.  Everything else is secondary.  I just need to remember to “keep the main thing the main thing” and (hopefully) everything else will fall into place….  
I can’t be the only struggling with this issue, how do you find balance in your life?
Take Care,
