Over the weekend, Jason and I had a teeny marital spat. That's what married couples do sometimes, I know, I know, #nbd. I don't usually talk about our business. I tend to be a bit more private about our arguments because I don't believe in airing my dirty laundry. We've all seen it happen before, and let's just agree that it isn't pretty.
Not pretty at all.
However, this discussion made me realize something. Which I honestly believe is the point of some arguments. You need to know what caused it and how to prevent it from happening in the future. I have no sense of balance in my life. I come home from work and immediately jump on my phone to catch up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Because all of those pictures of the vine app are sooooo interesting Interesting enough that it consumes me while Jason talks about his day.
Jason will try to grab my attention and I just usually end up saying "yeah,yeah,yeah...one more thing" Because that's polite and all. Then after dinner I usually beg to watch Real Housewives of every.single.city. It's an addiction that I probably should just seek help for. Once Jason declines (several times), I just head into our room and watch it anyway, by myself.
Now guarantee this doesn't happen every night, but a few times a week I choose TV and social media over my best friend. Inevitably I also chose this over doing and light cleaning and laundry. Then Friday shows up and our house looks like a Hurricane came bustling through and left no survivors. I freak, sometimes scream and sometimes cry. Embarrassing.
I've come to the point where I need to find balance to fit everything in. I agree to everything...work, babysitting my nephews/cousins, girls nights....but when it comes time to chill out and just hang with Jason I decline. I should've made this my New Years Resolution but I'm a too late and too scared of actually breaking this one.
So help me out, give me some tips!
What are ways you find balance in your day-to-day schedule?
