When You Feel Like You Can't Juggle Everything

With summer coming to an end, everyone is going back to their regularly scheduled lives. With a lot of things to do and so many things to juggle.

Are you one of those people that are feeling as though you may not be able to handle it all?

Don't worry - so many people feel that way, like they won't have enough time to do their school work, see friends, spend time with family/significant others, give themselves some time as well, be able to work, etc. There is a lot of people have to get done in their daily lives. And most of the time they feel as though they won't be able to do it all.

But don't think that way, that's the first step.

Map out everything you have to do for a month, figure out what has to be done and what you would like to get done in that specific month. Organization is key - if you aren't organized, it won't work.

But at the same time, try not to plan your life out too much.

Leave time for spontaneous adventures and random plans that may come about. Life has to be fun as well as organized but those two things are mutually exclusive.

Just know that sometimes certain things in your life will fall onto the back burner, whether that's your family or your friendships or even relationships.

But guess what? It's totally okay because sometimes other things take priority like yourself or school or work. Never apologize or feel bad for prioritizing yourself or your future. If they truly care about you, they will understand. It's not that you love them any less, or that you don't prioritize your relationships anymore, but that your future is something you have to work on too.

Having a balance is important. Organization can help with that, but sometimes there just isn't enough time and that is TOTALLY OKAY!
