Mother & Artist Balancing Act: Sometimes it feels like the Circus!

I’ve never been good at having to interrupt my work when I’m creating.  I was never good at spending my free time on my own creations while working in theater and film.  I enjoy my “I deserve to relax” time too much.  I just don’t know how to shift gears, let go and change focus.  Needless to say being a mother of 2 makes this challenge even harder.  As an artist I feel like I’ve had to give up a HUGE part of myself.  The first time around (at the birth of our son) I felt like a part of me was in mourning.  The 2nd time around, as our daughter was born it was easier as I had already given up so much.  Now that she’s here and I’ve recovered a bit I’m itching to get back to that dormant artist within.  I remind myself daily to have little goals (little expectations).  I’ve brought a bunch of projects home from the studio and I hope to start working on them in the new year.  After all it’s Christmas time and I think it’s the first year that creating the magic I remember as a little girl for my son will really matter to him.  So in the mean time I’m creative within the holiday spirit.
