System Overload.

I know that I have said this a hundred times, but I have been so busy. It has come to the point where I need to evaluate what I am doing and see if it is all worth it. I came to the conclusion that teaching guitar lessons isn't really worth it. It actually isn't really all that fun anymore. (The teaching that is.) It has been more of a hassle than anything else and I think that my students deserve more than that. So I quit. It was really hard to tell my students that I wouldn't be teaching any more. I feel bad, but I have to do what is good for me. I think that it is best for them too though. They need someone that is truly dedicated to it so they can get the best experience out of it.

I feel better now. I feel that I am a little less stressed. I love everything else that I am doing right now, so I think that I have elimiated all that I can. This summer is going to be WAY more busy than last summer with photography and I can't wait. My little dude will be starting swimming lessons in June right after soccer gets over. We are planing a few camping trips and trips to Idaho to the in-law's ranch for some much needed family down time. Then I am going to Mexico in a month and I think that after I get home I will be refreshed and ready to handle anything! Oh I can't wait!

Good for you for prioritizing. Sometimes it is just a matter of stepping back and looking at your life and saying: Is this going to be important in 5 years? Am I enjoying this? Is this taking me where I want my life to go? This is something I try to do, but it is hard!

"sometimes you just have to do what you have to do" - one of my favorite sayings, used by me all the time!!

It's hard to see the changes that need to be made sometimes, but I'm proud for you that you are putting your family & yourself first.

i agree with MOC. We really need to step back sometimes and take a loo at what we are doing in our lives and reconsider some of our options! Good for you!

BTW- we love camping too!
