Mind

Busy Bodies

I’m thinking about the conversation I had with a new yoga student about how I left a Type A life after watching many women going manic about making a perfectly perfect perception of their selves and lives. One thing that I had resembled and now resent is being busy. And granted I had small children and your mind is super busy with panic and decisions outside of your own needs, so that makes a ton of sense. Then, as my kids grew and I found myself volunteering for about 2 things for each school organization, scouts and HOA… I was like Whoa. I’m “b-u-s-y.” But then as time went on and tasks and check boxes and lists grew and grew, things got easier and I wasn’t busy – I was just committed. I hear this phrase all the time and I think those saying the B-word are reaching for appreciation and need a sense of value. You might be “dedicating” yourself to your career or going dead from it. I saw this article and thought – yes. Someone might get it and good for them!
