Everything is about balance. Not about juggling in a furious attempt to keep everything in the air. Not giving up on your dreams because you feel like that time has passed.
It’s about balance.
Some days, your writing is the most important. On those days, you closet yourself away and write, and write, and write.
Other days, your family needs you. Your friends need you. Your work needs you. And on those days, you might not write at all.
And that’s okay. All you have to do is keep a balance.
