Out Of Focus

With so much going on in my life right now I feel a bit out of focus...Out of focus with myself.
The focus has been on my businesses, my children, home duties, another job, a class I am taking, photographing events and families, processing the photos, and now teaching art at my son's school.
This is a self portrait of my reflection in my guitar I took awhile back, and the way I am slightly out of focus is sort of how I feel right now in my life.
I know things will calm down. I also know I created this hectic life. I know soon I will have more time for focusing on me. I have plans for more exercise, meditation, being in nature, surfing, and daydreaming!
Update 9/25: Thanks everyone for the comments!
Writing this post really made me think about how I am choosing to create my life,
and I am happy to say I am coming back into focus with myself!

Have a great weekend!
