This is what I hear you say ..

I could really go for it (on the job, in my business, in my personal life) but if I do that now, with all my responsibilities, I don’t see how I’m going to be able to keep my life together. I need to think about this more. I’d better get more (advice, skills, permission) before I move ahead.
If I was just (more accomplished, educated, skilled, thinner, more energized), I could finally make progress on (my job, my business, my creative pursuit, finding my ideal mate). Once I make some progress on those things, my life can finally start.
If only there were more hours in the day I could finally (take that class, start that business, go for that promotion, get my health in order). But I have so much to do I don’t see how that is possible. I don’t seen anyone else stepping up to do these things so it all falls to me.
