I just enrolled in online classes to get my Associates Degree in Business Management and conentration in Healthcare Management. It seems that now my free time is being consumed filling out applications, filing for for grants and scholarships and puting my friends and family on hold, I am juggling work, friends, homework, and family all at one time.
I have set priorities for myself to help me use quality time with my family, friends and school. I have a plan of action, however, it doesn't always act out the way you plan.
I make a point to spend time with my little one after work. Then I start on my assignments, and discussion boards. However, I have every intention on keeping in touch with my sisters and mom and friends, it doesn't always pan out. I am not ignoring or don't want to be bothered with them. I am trying to accomplish a goal that I have tried years ago and could not. I don't understand why I must be the one initiate a conversation, My family and/or friends don't call on me to see how I am doing. I am not asking for self pity but just to say I should not be the only one. Is that bad to feel that way? I had not called my mom and she called me at work on Friday and I expalined that when I have the time I will call her and she didn't get a call on Saturday as I was spending quality time with my husband and daughter, You see my husband works nights monday thru friday, we don't see each other so, when the weekend comes we utilize that time to catch up and talk and spend time with each other.
My mom was upset that I had not called and thought something bad had happend. I don't want my friends to think I am ignoring them, I need to do this to finalize my goals.
Is it wrong to feel this way! I am not feeling guilty it may seem like I am but actually I am not, I am just trying to find a way to juggle all these issues and not lose my family, friends and school.
Thanks for your opinions and Have a Blessed Day! :~)
