I came across this list on Pinterest the other day when I was feeling a little scatterbrained, and every single thing on it was something I had made a mental note to do more of this past week or so. Recently, I've felt really spread out in 100 different directions and that I have so much going on that I barely get anything done. In reality, however, I don't actually have thaat much going on, but I've instead been wasting time on social media and then suddenly realize how much I actually have to accomplish (second semester of senior year will do that to you). Last weekend, for example, I was more spontaneous than ever (a major feat for a type a girl like myself) and had so many fun adventures with my friends, but then came home to a huge to do list the night before school. I barely got any sleep, felt so behind and didn't even write a blog post for the first time in a long time. As fun as it was to be on the go 24/7, I came home with a million things to do and very little motivation to do so.
Then when I saw this list, it really struck me:
After reading this over a million times and saving it on my phone, it reminded me of my goal for 2016: finding balance. Having only one semester left in high school, I highly intend to create more amazing memories with my friends, but allowing enough time for myself to do the above things is so important as well. This week, my goal is to work ahead and manage my time so that I can balance everything and still get enough sleep (always my main concern :).
Can you relate to this constant struggle as well?
