While in college I could go on and on about how busy I was. I thought it made me sound cool. Oh, I can’t meet for that group project because I have to go to work/class/back home/etc.
Then I graduated and I kept up with thinking that staying busy meant I was cool and that my time was more valuable. I just traded homework and class for laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, etc. You know, grown up stuff.
And now? A few years later I’ve learned that it’s okay to want to stay in for the night. Just because. It’s okay that I’m the type of person who enjoys making breakfast and taking walks around the neighborhood on Saturdays. I don’t need to fill every minute of every day in order to feel like I’m being the best me I can be at this moment.
You and your time are valuable and precious.
I think it’s time we all stop the glorification of busy and start enjoying where we are right now.
