Juggling......But Not Dropping.

 

 
 
I have lots of people who rely on me, you are probably the same. Different people relying on you, for different reasons......you find yourself wearing many different hats.
 

 

 
 
And because so many people rely on me, I have found myself to be juggling lots of different balls. They are all different shapes and sizes, some are very heavy, some of very light, some colourful, some downright ugly......at the moment though, I feel I'm juggling too many.
 
 
 
 
I'm feeling a little out of balance, scared of dropping one.
 
 
 
 
And so, for the time being, because it's so precious to me, I'm going to wrap this little blog of mine, in some soft tissue paper and pop it somewhere very, very safe.
 
I hope when I come back to find it, you will still be here.
 
 
Bye For Now,
 
Ada :) xxx

  1. Hello lovely Ada. I really hope that by wrapping up this precious space you have created that we all love to visit so much, you find some balance to give and care for those who need it, including yourself. Needless to say we will all still be here and I will miss seeing you around blogland. Take care of yourself and be kind to yourself. Much love xoxo

  2. Lovely image, Ada! Wrap this blog up carefully and take as long as you need. Everybody needs a blogging break from time to time. We'll be here when you choose to return.

  7. Hugs to you Ada. I hope things calm down for you soon, and you get some "me" time - it's so important. Of course the blog can wait - and we will all still be here. xxx

  8. Oh, I do know the feeling and think it's very wise of you to give yourself a little bit of breathing space.

    Don't worry, we're not going anywhere.

    Take care, Heather x

  9. Blogging is a large ball of time so hope you feel the benefit...I'll still be here as I haven't got many balls now! Just don't forget where you've put it! xx

  10. Truly Ada, I know the feeling. I will be here when you get back, and I am sure that everyone else will be here too. I hope that you are able to rehome some of your "hats" or juggle them off somewhere else if that is possible. It is hard when these things come, and I hope that it will pass for you and that things will be good in the end. As lots of lovely people have told me recently, take care of yourself, big hugs and lots of love. I can also recommend lots of hot chocolate, especially the peppermint one that I just discovered. Thinking of you. xx

  11. Sometimes balls are more important than blogs! BUT remember even the best juggler has a limit to how many balls he can hold at once ... Don't overdo do it - most things really can wait ...
    Take care.

  17. Take care of yourself lovely Ada Bea, I know that feeling all too well but I suspect you've got a lot more balls to juggle than me. Relax and enjoy your blog break, safe in the knowledge that we will all be here when you return, and we will be delighted to hear from you. Lots of love, Rachel xxx

  24. Oh Ada. I really do know what you mean. Sometimes the motherhood gig is a little more all consuming than one expected. It's the sub categories of all the shades of their day through school and friends and sports and music and emotional turmoils and their needs and YOUR needs!!!! Take some time and be kind to yourself, dear Ada. x

  25. Have a well deserved rest. We will miss you, but will appreciate you all the more when you are back to blogging!

  26. I do love visiting your space/place and have so much respect for you, truly.
    For whatever it is worth, I do say take care of what needs to be taken care of...your family, friends and especially your own self. It is a difficult balance every day. And, here I am...........old enough to be most bloggers grandmama, and still trying to do it all at times....just crazy!
    Wishing you comfort, peace and all things that bring you joy.

  30. Oh Ada, so sorry ... but something has to give and if having a break from blogging gives you valuable time and space then we all understand, I just hope you come out of your wrappings soon (having one less thing to worry about can work wonders) ... and of course we will all still be here, as you all were for me.

    Much love, Claire xxx

  34. Dear Ada, you must take some time out to get the balance of your life back. We will be waiting to read you again, and I hope you will occasionally take a few minutes to pop over and see some of us. It is easy to get so far removed from blogging that it becomes a foreign country - don't let that happen, I would miss you if you dropped off the edge! But hoping you will feel better for spreading yourself less thinly, and soon be back among us. Much love, Lynnexxxx

  49. Hey Ada, I've been away for a few months and now when I come and visit, you're going into hibernation for a while..........blogging eats into our spare time and while it's fun and great friendships formed we've still got to do the day to day things......
    I hope you find the break gives you back the balance you need. Take care of yourself, wish I could package up some of our blue sky and warm temps to send you.........I'll go and have a little mooch around and catch up on missed posts.
