How do you know if you are too busy? When is it time to say enough is enough?
I feel like I am always on the go. Most days I am booked solid from 3:30 am to about 7:30 pm. I schedule in running, work, the commute, the gym, and typically have plans with someone…either my mom, slull, Jbone or have something else planned. I feel like I am constantly on the go.
I have another cold. Ew is right. I am stuffed up and all boogery. You are welcome for that marvelous picture I just gave you, of me and my snots. I think the cold is due to the fact that I don’t have down time.
The problem is… there aren’t enough hours in the day. I make time for the people and things I want. Some weeks it is easier than others to do everything. For the most part, what ever I make time for I am happy to be doing so. I just feel like I am starting to get burnt out. I think the fact that I have another cold is also a sign that I need to chill.
I am busy, but I don’t know if I am always present. I am going to start making a conscious effort of staying in the moment, of actually BEING where I am rather than thinking about my next move. Because really, isn’t that what life is all about. Stopping to smell the roses every now and then?
As I make an effort to try and slow down… I will also be looking forward to a mini getaway with Jbird and the rest of my family to help get me back to zero, back to start and back to taking it one step at a time.
It’s off to bed with an all too early wake up call!
I hope you have a chance to stop and smell the roses!!
