I DON'T BALANCE IT ALL- I PRIORITIZE

I am writing this blog post as I stress about the million things I have to do right now. Literally, I have a ton of stuff on my To-Do list and I am questioning whether I will truly get it done by the deadline. Ahhh! I laid in bed last night like, why do I continuously put myself through this stress?! But then I quickly tell myself: this is what you wanted girl, don’t complain. So these thoughts inspired this blog post because, essentially this blog is my way to get my thoughts out in hopes to inspire others- so here we go!

I am often times asked “well Dayna, it looks like you’re doing things so easily, how do you balance it all”. The truth is, I don’t. Balance is defined as a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions. So it is VERY safe to say that everything that I have going on right now is not “balanced”- that is far from the truth lol.

What I have learned is that it is not about balancing it all, but really prioritizing. That is always my answer to the “how do you balance it all” question. It is simply about making certain things a priority at different moments of my life.  At this moment, writing this blog post is my priority and in an hour, getting dinner on the table will be my priority. So at different moments of my day, week, or month, I set forth different priorities in order to achieve my goal.

So, with that said- I need to get my life together because, with the millions of things on my agenda, I certainly have to sit down and work through the list and determine what the true priorities are and what I can shift around.

When I start to get stressed or overwhelmed, this is how I get a sense of peace back, because ultimately trying to “balance” everything will drive me to drink! Haha

ABOUT THE LOOK
So let’s chat about today’s outfit. I am obsessed with the patchwork details in these Zara jeans! If you don’t have a pair of this style jean, get on it! They are the perfect statement jeans. I also love the sleeve detail of the top. This is the perfect casual slay outfit! 

So, what are your thoughts on today’s topic of prioritizing over balance? Would you agree? Let me know down in the comments below!
