Are you busy?

Are you busy?

I’ve been told by a lot of people lately (including my husband) that I’m just too busy.

Usually I shrug stuff like this off. It’s how I’ve always been. I don’t know any other way. I don’t sit still well.

But after enough people that I care deeply about have said something, I’m beginning to wonder if my ‘normal’ is actually severely abnormal.

I’m an only child, a classic over-achiever, with an entrepreneurial mindset who’s always coming up with the next undiscovered idea. Our family has always loved adventure and being on the go. I thrive on taking risks and trying new things.

But with our recent move in May and my father-in-law’s brain tumor diagnosis in June, our summer was anything but ordinary.

Now that we have a house of our own, my husband is craving to be in it for more than a few hours at a time (and he actually wants us all to be in it at the same time together! Crazy, right? 😉

So I’m asking you: Do you think I’m too busy?

Or maybe you should ask yourself, Are you too busy?

How do we define busy? And how do we get out of the cycle once we’re in it?

More importantly for me, how do you continue pursuing your passions and not lose sight of your family’s goals & dreams while still taking time to be still?

Those are questions I don’t have answered, but would love to hear your thoughts!
