Aww, thank YOU! Yes, it is a constant juggle, but making sure you put life first, that being yourself /family/joy/needs is important. There will always be more roles and time for the right story, you can’t perform well if you’re not taking care of you. That doesn’t mean you have to be happy! As an artist, use sad/heartbroken/frustrated as motivators to create and grow in your art, but you must make sure you are being a good “mom” to yourself and yours. Then, from that solid footing, you can reach higher in art. That sounds way loftier than I intended, ha! Look, everyone’s balance will be different, the key is finding what YOU need to be happy/healthy. If a your thrival job is sucking your soul away, find another. I know that can be challenging, but once you’re past the transition part it will be worth it. I also know change is scary, for us all, but one thing that helps me is realizing that physically, fear and excitement are the same experience. Close your eyes and test it out - your body “feels” them the same. SO, if something like a looming change scares you, decide it’s exciting instead. It takes effort, but your body can be taught to follow your brain’s lead.
