So many of us wear “busy” like a badge of honor. We mistake productivity for self-worth. Take some time today and really think about what you love and ask yourself how you are incorporating it into your life. If you aren’t, can you figure out a way to fit it in?
I have never had a problem with feeling like busy as an honor. Even back in the days when I really was busy, with full time work, taking six hours of classes in grad school, and having three kids who were in sports, and various other activities, I never “bragged” about how busy I was. I hated all that coming and going.
Turning 50 I have found what I enjoy, and I incorporate those into my life. I am also at a place where I don’t have to be doing all the time.
