A Balancing Act

Life is a constant balancing act –

Work, family, spirituality (if you’re a spiritual person), exercise, nutrition, friends, hobbies.

The list goes on and on.

Things can be going along smoothly until suddenly they’re not.

That’s when I usually realize my life has gotten out of balance and I need to readjust my time.

Technology can make me feel stressed out too.

Yesterday, over the course of one hour, I had five different people sending me texts.

Each of those texts, separately, could possibly result in a reshuffle of my very tightly booked week.

Each of those texts, on their own, was not a big deal.

But, having them all arrive on my phone nearly simultaneously … well, it stressed me out.

By the afternoon, I had tossed my phone in my photography bag and refused to look at it even when I could hear it vibrating inside.

I was meeting with a new client.

It’s difficult to be unavailable when you’re a one woman business.

I feel like I should always be there when people need me, but it isn’t possible one hundred percent of the time.

I’m very excited, however, to begin a new photography project this week.

I’m working with Adam Wright  –  he owns WrightWay Fitness.

Adam has been very patient waiting for me to be free to work with him.

I can’t always talk about what projects I’m working on, but Adam is fine with me sharing.

It’s a good thing, too, because his project is one I will want to blog about.

(Hey, if I’m going to be up before dawn photographing boot camps you can BET I’m going to want to talk about it.)

Adam does more than boot camps, though.

Yep, he does many other things including “heavy lifting” classes, and “toughen up Tuesday’s,” and “cardio blasts.”

I get tired just thinking about it.

On the other hand,

I’m really excited about this project.

I can’t stop imagining all the photos I will take.

There are so many possibilities … I can’t wait!

      I think I’ll get a workout just photographing the classes!
