"There is Nothing Constant in the Universe. All Ebb and Flow, And Every Shape That's Born, Bears in its Womb the Seeds of Change." Ovid.
Yesterday, I missed the self-imposed deadline for sending out my Monday Inspiration. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to work on a client's manuscript after about 3 hours of sleep and I could barely keep my eyelids open. So at about 7:00 a.m., I decided to go back to bed. When I woke up, I still could not function properly, so I decided to skip out on the Monday Inspiration and work altogether, and just focus on playing with my daughter.

This morning, I am up again. This time at 5:00 a.m., feeling refreshed, having gotten a full night's sleep (which for me is at least 5 hours). I was going to wait until next Monday, but I was sitting here working and thinking when the thought popped into my head and, I don't want to wait to share it.

Last week Thursday, I landed a new client. She's the one whose manuscript I'm currently working on. Before her, I had just completed work for another client. This new client and I were still ironing out the terms while I was wrapping up on my previous client's work. Before the previous client, I was ironing out terms with that client and two other clients. This has all happened within the last 2-3 months. Before then, there were other email inquiries, but nothing that became a deal. And before then, there were long periods of deafening silence.  

Last week I shared a Shonda Rhimes video with my readers because I could not focus on writing an inspirational post. As I was reflecting on why; I found that I was feeling a little drained by my life. Juggling several roles in the span of a few hours will do that to anyone. So today I decided to share with you a few things I came up with that helped me survive the rest of the week. This may or may not apply to your current situation, but I'm sure there are areas of your life where some of these lessons may still be helpful.
