What is a Girl to do?

Typically I would say I am a pretty happy-go-lucky girl, but last week and this week has gotten the better side of me. I'm not really sure what has triggered or altered my mood, but I just feel like I can't find balance in my life right now. The strange thing is I love everything about my life - my love for God, my adorable kids, my ever-so patient, loving husband, my family, my friends, my job, my home - I am appreciative of it ALL, but yet I am lacking something. I am always trying to keep everyone happy, but I'm beginning to think this isn't possible. Someone or something is always going to be "left aside" no matter how hard I try, and this weighs heavy on my heart and mind. Do I expect too much of myself? Yes, I do! Maybe I give too much to others and not enough to myself, but if I didn't give enough of me to them am I being selfish? This is a daily struggle I deal with. I've tried setting aside an hour or two to myself everyday, but then something else seems to go to the wayside like laundry, dishes, exercise, my kids, my husband, etc. What is a girl to do with not enough time in a day?!
