maybe we're not lazy, maybe we're not unorganized (well maybe we're a little unorganized) - maybe we're just trying to do too much

a short rant - at a certain point even the master juggler

(that guy in the Guinness World Record Book with the 47 flaming plates on a stick, who may or may not be missing an ear)

piles on one too many plates and finds his maximum juggling capacity

(hopefully before losing that second ear).

And this maximum juggling capacity is a personal thing.

Your maximum and my maximum are probably two different maximums.

(and now that I have just typed the word maximum so many times, the spelling just looks ... wrong - I hate when that happens)

* wastes 2 minutes googling maximum *

And yes, I get that these lessons are all about setting priorities and asking for help and saying no and

... I guess we had better figure it out before those flaming plates hit us over the head.

(there are some kick-ass earrings out there - it would be a sad thing if we never get to wear them ....)

Juggling is the story of my life right now. Big art show, selling my house, working full time, selling my car, quitting my job and moving....all at the same time. Ahhh!

oh Jennifer that is WAY too much! I haven't forgotten your cork either! xo

Unni I think I will do like Viktoria says here and let some plates fall- I've always had a very hard head ...

Juggler here. Sometimes I wonder what the heck I've gotten myself into with all these projects, and then I remember I'd go nuts if I didn't allow myself that variety...

Times like these do remind you though, to step back, simplify, prioritize... for sure. ♥
