A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.
Busy means to keep occupied or having a great deal to do. But it seems to me we make this word so much more. A few months ago I set out on a quest to bring awareness to how this word is used. After all we all have the same amount of time it's just how we prioritize it. Is ‘busy’ really just a mindset? Are we using busy as an excuse?
