I firmly believe people should do lots of things with their life. But we should do them one at a time. Not that we shouldn't multi-task or follow several dreams at once. It's just we should concentrate on what's in front of us at the time. I always write better and can give it my full attention if I know I gave my full attention to my hubby or kids when it was their turn. Trying to live in both worlds at the same time can often be a disaster and leave me filled with guilt for doing neither of them well. But if I concentrate on whichever job I'm doing at the time Then I can focus on the next one with a clear conscience.
