Busy, busy, busy. You have a list of so many things you want to get done. Cook healthy meals. Take me time. Get a promotion at your job. Clean out your closet. Go to yoga. Take your kids to that show. Figure out your life. Find a significant other. Paint the fence. Paint a masterpiece. Floss. Go rock climbing. Saving your marriage. Walk your dogs. What is on your list?
The question is – “What are you prioritizing.” You will always be busy. There will always be work, responsibilities, carpooling, classes, responsibilities and duties. Things you ‘have’ to do will always be there. Is it possible that making time for the things that mean living and life are more important than cleaning your home? Is it possible that prioritizing having happy, healthy family relationships is more important than making sure your child is in every activity possible?
Prioritize what is important to you. Your priorities illustrate who you are. Take a moment and review your priorities. Are you putting your relationships, friends and family at the top. (Keeping in mind quality not quantity.) It takes time and work to keep nurture our relationships. “I’m too busy, “is really just a convenient excuse for us to use. You can always find to time to do what is important to you. It is just figuring out what is really matters to you.
“It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?” ~Henry David Thoreau
