You have to carve that time out for yourself. Every day. What you learn from this is invaluable. The discipline, the boundaries, the priorities, the negotiations you have with yourself, the frustrations, the feelings of achievement. If you can stay aware and open and observe the relationships you have with this process, with the people you live with, with juggling everything else you have going on to make this one commitment happen, the take-aways and evolutions that come from this are priceless.
