Friends, family and blog readers often ask me how I fit it all in. “It all” being: single parenting an almost 13 year old boy and a 14-going-on-17 year old girl; being a civil trial lawyer; starting my own law firm; blogging and training for marathons (working on marathon #9 and counting). They build me up as Super Woman.
But, really, it’s not as hard as it sounds. I just follow the Ten Commandments. Not the ones in the Good Book. My own version of the Ten Commandments. Following them may not get me through the pearly gates of Heaven, but they do keep me fit, sane and smiling.
So there you have it. The Ten Commandments to Fitting It All In. However, above all else, remember that these are just guidelines. They work for me, but they may not work for you. So tweak them a bit so that they do work for you and keep on with your quest to fit it all in!
