In your day to say life it is important to find a balance that works for you. That balance will be unique to you, and only you can determine what is right for you. For me my family comes before everything, but what dies that really mean? Does that mean that I can't take a day to myself and go and create photographs, not particularly. This is where the balance comes in. For me to be the best for my family I need to be balanced. Look at it this way, you need to eat to sustain your life but if you eat too much... well we know what happens then. Consider photography the food for your soul, that thing that gets the juices flowing.
Inspiration for your photographs will not just come from visual stimulation, feel your photographs.
