It's nearly ten years since I made a commitment to my just-about-to-become husband, to be the best wife I could be.

It's been four years in total since I made a commitment to my then-unborn daughter, to love and care for her completely and utterly.

Just over one year ago I made a commitment to my newly born son, to be the best mother I could possibly be to both him and his sister; to love them both equally, uncompromisingly and without question.

It's been roughly seven months since I created Chez Mummy (or Adventures of an Ordinary Parent as it was known in its first few months of life) and made a commitment to create a memoir for my children, posting regularly about our life as a family.

One week ago, I made a new commitment. To create a new website; a new venture that I hope could improve my work/life balance in the long-run.

That's a lot of commitments to juggle and they are so all encompassing it's quite frankly exhausting.  How do you manage to balance your commitments?

  1. By knowing my limitations and accepting them not as shortcomings but rather as guideposts to keep me from exhausting myself on the journey. As the husband and father of a special needs wife and three special needs kids, I know that there are simply things that shouldn't be attempted but those that should I'll try to do them very well.


I would love to hear your thoughts and views so please feel free to post a comment
