The Glorification of Busy
(or “I May Have to Go to Bed at 1am and Wake Up at 6am But I CAN HAVE IT ALL!”)
I have a fantastic and challenging job that stretches me to my limit, pushes me to grow, and makes me feel proud. This keeps me busy.
I have a handsome boyfriend, and every moment spent with him feels like the richest of quality time. This keeps me busy.
I have a strong right brain, an urge to write, sing, play for rooms of beating hearts, a desire to paint, an insatiable appetite for all things creative… for anything that strikes my soul and leaves it vibrating. This keeps me busy.
I have beautiful weekend warriors for friends, who endeavor to do it all and who will YOLO until the day they drop dead from YOLOing. I have developed a very strong case of FOMO* as a result. It keeps me busy.
I’m happy and I’m busy. Which is definitely good, but certainly not best.
What do you do to unplug from the busy-ness of your life, Dear Reader? How do you reset?
*FOMO: fear of missing out.
