It’s funny how one little thing can stick in your mind for days. On my way to work the other day I heard a quote on the radio:

“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” Bill Cosby

This really hit home with me, so much so that I honestly couldn’t stop thinking about it. This time of year is always busy for me (as I know it is for most of you too!) between work, home and family, but lately I’ve really been struggling with trying to do too much and completely exhausting myself in the process.

So I began examining my commitments and priorities in an effort to ease some of the stress that’s been weighing me down. I told myself that something had to give in order for me to keep my sanity and find some me time to unwind and relax.

My life revolves around a few major things: friends, family, my hubby, work and blogging. The time I spend with my friends and family are very rare and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, no dice. Josh and I can never really spend enough time together (which usually isn’t much) so that can’t be eliminated.

The bills have to be paid so obviously, I’ve got to work. That left me with blogging. I love blogging, I love the blogging community. But it has just become one more thing I don’t have the time for right now. But it isn’t something that I’m ready to give up completely.

So in order to (hopefully) retain some of my sanity I’m going to significantly reduce my blogging habits. I don’t know how long this will last, maybe just through the holidays, maybe longer. My plan for the foreseeable future is to try and post once a week, probably on Mondays.

The most important thing to me right now is to be able and enjoy my life without adding additional stress. I love this blog, and I won’t be leaving it completely without a fight. But sometimes even when you love something, you still have to take a breather.

I hope you will continue to visit me here at AHB, despite my reduction in posts. I love the time we spend here together, and I hope you do too.
