I am an overthinker. My head is often 5 years in the future. Sometimes, this makes me feel burnt out. Surprisingly, my business is possibly the one area of my life I am able to stay in the moment. I am new and can recognize that I haven't seen enough of my own results yet to make big leaps and plunges into 2021. In this way, adding something to my plate has actually given me better life balance. I love my business. But I know that when my boyfriend has time off from his 6-day-a-week-10-hrs-a-day job, my blog posts will wait for me. When my Mom wants to spend Saturday night eating gluten-free pizza and catching up, I know that the e-mails I need to send can wait until Monday without anyone being the wiser.
I have learned, thank god, that for a business to be successful it doesn't need to be your focus all of the time. Burning out or limiting the time you spend with family does not label you as "motivated." Prioritizing as an entrepreneur can be difficult to learn, but nothing can be "on" 100% of the time without running out of charge. Give to yourself the opportunities to be an entrepreneur, a friend, a co-worker, a parent or daughter or sibling or cousin, a cook, a reader, a discoverer of new hiking trails and a lover of reality tv. Because you can do these all at once. And then congratulate yourself, because that's pretty badass.
