Everyone is different. And each of us can mark our own growth and development in different ways. For me, learning to recognize my own limitations has been a lifelong battle. I want to believe that I can do it all. That I can be all things to all people at all times.

Which is ridiculous. And unrealistic. And downright impossible.

Walking out of the doctor’s office, with a diagnosis of bronchitis in hand, I realized that I needed to ask for help. I couldn’t possibly take care of everything that needed to happen this week while struggling for breath.

Thanks, Jack, for taking HH off of my hands.
Thanks, Ima, for the Tu Bishvat treats.
Thanks, SuperMom, for dropping off dinner late last night.
Thanks to BubbeGiraffe and ZaydeGiraffe for caring for the Frumettes.

And now…back to sleep.

    Feel better soon…and if you need any tips about napping on the couch and lazying around in a quest to get better, let me know. I’m an expert in this department these days! 😉

    Feel better!

    I’ve been thinking about limitations a lot lately. I started my blog two months ago, and while I LOVE it, I simply cannot keep up with the blogging, tweeting, and writing the novel (where I “should” be spending my writing time.) My writing time is scarce with little kids . . . and I’m chipping away at it with the social media stuff. HOWEVER, the connections I’ve made (like with you!) are real. I don’t want to crawl back into the lonely writing cave either. I want to find a way to balance it all. I know that limits are the only way . . . just trying to figure out exactly what they should be. Shabbat Shalom, my friend!

      We are at different places. For me, the blogging has strengthened my writing to the point that I am able to see how I can proceed to the book. You are already a strong writer. When I started blogging, I wrote when I wrote and if I didn’t get to it, no big deal. Eventually, the blog took front-burner for me. Writing five days a week keeps me focused and forces me to meet deadlines. It is my training ground.

      Keep blogging because you have great things to say. Just find a way that it doesn’t feel burdensome. The social media part reaps so many benefits. I feel the same way about the connections I’ve made (like with you!) and know that my life is enriched by the time I spend on SM.

      Shavua tov…
