I looked at the home page here and realized I haven’t posted much this month. Consistency just flew right out the window. I apologize for that, because I know how important it is to be consistent with your content and to be part of the conversation.
At the same time I had to take a moment to remind myself that busy is good and to be thankful for it. Busy means that I have a lot of work going on – so much in fact that I’ve had to recruit some extra help in a few areas this month.
Busy means that I have income, which is of course very good when bills come due or the kids need new shoes or have event fees to pay at school. Busy usually means that I’m doing something right somewhere, and that’s always a relief.
Busy has some downfalls. Busy means that my house is a mess. Busy means that I went to the store in my sweatpants the other day because I was rushing. Busy means that I’m staying up late and getting up early, and skipping that afternoon nap that I really enjoy.
Busy means that there’s a lot going on and I have to remind myself to breathe a little so I don’t get overwhelmed. Busy means that new niche project I’ve been planning is going to have to wait a few weeks.
But, you know what?
I like busy. I’m extremely grateful for busy. Busy is awesome.
I hope that you find yourself both busy and grateful today as well.
