Burn Out?

After lots of thought, stress, time spent, I am looking forward to some down time.  I’ve basically been on the go since the girls were all born. 

My freelance activity slowly started taking over my whole life. 

To the point where it was hard to take my own kids to the park down the street from my house. 

I feel like I’ve missed out recording milestones, and spending quality time with my girls. 

And so, I’m deciding to take some time off to opt out. 

To be me. 

To be with my girls. 

To take their pictures, work on their (non-exisitant) baby albums. 

To breathe, to cook. 

To relax in my own home. 

To open my computer to blog, to record this period in my life that I want to savor, cherish.

I don’t know what this means for the long term future.  Maybe I’ll have to go back to work in a few years, in a traditional sense.  Maybe something else will come up.  But I can’t let the stress of ‘what ifs’ or ‘maybes’ stop me from living in the now.  For breathing in my babies while they are still small.
