Finding a balance

Last Update: September 29, 2016

Today starts my 9th day on WA and I'm still trying to find a balance in my life to make this all work. My goal for the next week is time management. I have 3 children, 26 year old son, 24 year old daughter and 3 year old daughter. The reason I started WA is because I lost my full time job in February after trying to juggle family and work with my son who suffered a brain injury in June 2015. He is still in the hospital 15 months later and I'm trying to make a go of income online to help my husband with supporting our income. So, it's been a tough last 8 days trying to find a balance between my new online endeavor, spending time with God, working out, taking care of my youngest, being there for my son, a wife and my older daughter had a baby boy the end of January, so yes I am a grandma :)

I am happy with the progress I have made so far with WA and I get so excited each time I go through a lesson that I want to keep going which ends up keeping me up half the night then I'm exhausted the next day but I push and do it all over Again!

For those of you that are still working full time jobs and taking on this extra online business could you please share with me any tips that helped you find an equal balance of time in your Life?

Thank you in advance and wishing you all the Best!

Melissa

Melissa, I don't have any beliefs but I feel if there is a higher power then all the time you spend helping and being there for your family and others is time spent with the higher power. So if you can't devote specific time to that you are still covered!

Hello MelissaW1,
I know that you know that life is not always fair as we see it; we sometimes find ourselves asking the question-why me? Well somethings are beyond our comprehension.

Stay PRAYERFUL and Always Know that GOD HAS ALL POWER IN HIS HANDS! You and Your Son will Always be in my Prayers

To GOD Give The Glory;
Your Brother In Christ;
Respectfully;
William
P.S What is you son's name? I want to place it on the Alter.

Thank you Brother William. Yes, I've asked "why" a lot but changed it to "make all good come from this". I truly appreciate your concern and prayers, my son's name is Ron Bailey.

God Bless,
Melissa

So much respect for you, Melissa! That is awesome! When I still had my full time job and was starting with internet marketing my big goal would usually be an hour a day. One hour of focused work over time is MASSIVE. Even with my grocery management job at the time, my church volunteer work and my 2 kids, I always was able to set apart at least one hour of focused work!

Thank you Dan! I appreciate you reading my post and the nice comment. Yes, I may have to spend a little less time to keep going. I figure once I get My site built and published it should get easier.

God Bless
