You know that wave of anxiety that sneaks up on you, almost out of nowhere, when it comes time to power down your smartphone? That nagging voice inside of you that screams, "But wait! What if I miss something!?” That's pretty much how you can sum up what life beyond my technological devices used to feel like for me.
So you can imagine how I felt when I was told I needed to power down my entire life.
As a busy "mompreneur," my time feels extremely limited. I learned the hard way that as my business started taking off, some of my best qualities would begin working against me. You see, my laptop is my life. I'm a writer after all. I'm either buried in it or on the phone — all day long.
When I'm not, I'm wearing my mom hat. And when the sun sets, and my family is comfortably tucked away in bed, I'm likely powering through what little energy I have left, to respond to each and every client request, giving up my relaxation time and often crawling into bed long after my energy tank has been depleted.
