Being Busy

Blessed day all ~

Hoping this day finds you focused on the job at hand, prioritizing you needs versus wants and making hard decisions that will, in the end, best represent your true happiness.

If I could slap an adjective in front of my title it would be busy - busy wife, busy mom, busy friend, busy instructor, busy volunteer, busy salesperson, etc etc etc. My life these days is dictated by the hours blocked out in my calendar. My husband and I refer to our smart phones as our "family bible" of sorts, as it keeps us connected - connected to our work calendars, kids activities, our lives and yes, each other. As the kids activities ramp up, there are weeks that go by where the only way we are able to connect with one another is by phone (voice, text, email). The winter months tend to be a bit slower and allow us some much needed R&R from travel sports, but they are still packed full of activities. I suspect many of you are also busy in your own way, in your own world.

I came across a great blog titled "Find Peace in a Busy Life" that had some great nuggets of insight that I wanted to share. Something for all of us to consider as we carve out precious time for ourselves, our spouses, our children and others.
There's no such thing as being too busy. If you really want something, you'll make time for it.

I’ve realized that busy is simply a state of mind. A state that often causes stress, unhappiness and waisted energy.

Don't be too busy to serve your purpose.

Life can never be too busy for the things that matter most to you. If you don’t have time for those, the busywork won’t matter anyway.

“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these needs there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”
~ Thomas Alva Edison

Cheers for finding busy-ness that serves your purpose toward accomplishment.

Blessings and Namaste,
