I hate my to-do list

I know a lot of bloggers and no matter how big or small their readership, I have heard all of them say at one point that they sometimes wonder if anyone is reading their blog. For the sake of this post, I'm going to pretend that there are thousands of you out there reading this right now and excited to finally see a post!

So, my dear readers, you may be wondering where I've been lately and why I haven't posted in so long. I hate that I'm about to say this but....I've been so busy!

Writing a post is on my daily "To Do" list. And at the end of everyday, during that just about to fall asleep point when my eyes are closed and my body is relaxed, my brain decides to remind me of all the things I forgot to do and what I have left to get done. My brain loves making me feel like a loser.

And that's the problem. I'm not a loser! I have already crossed off a ton of items off my list today! So why am I feeling so horrible and why am I being so hard on myself?

Because I want it all.

I do and I can't help it. Maybe it's the Capricorn in me or the fact that I sometimes feel like I'm sitting next to one of those little board game sand timers and it's running out of sand. Whatever the reason, I feel that you just have this one life and not enough time to get it all in.

How do you juggle it all? And do you ever feel overwhelmed by your looming "to do list"?
