I love this quote. This quote is how I feel a lot these days.
As I write this post, it’s after 10 PM on a Monday night. I haven’t been in my office since Wednesday. Tuesday is going to be a day full of catch up, in between a number of meetings on the schedule.
There are so many other things I want to do with my Tuesday. I want take a Pure Barre class; finish reading my book; work on a project I’ve been playing with whenever I get five minutes for months; watch Center Stage for the tenth time; go to a Junior League training; blog; sit and be still.
I won’t get to do all of those things though. There is never enough time. I’ll fit in the Pure Barre class by waking up at 5:30 and getting to the studio by 6AM. I’ll grab some quiet time somewhere between Pure Barre an time to head to the office. I’ll go to work and hopefully check a few things off my to-do list. I’ll go to the Junior League training; I might get to blog after that; Or I might decide to skip it and read my book instead.
It may sound like I’m complaining. I’m actually doing anything but. To live a life in which you have so many things you want to do with people you want to be with is a blessing. We have a glorification of “busy” in our society, as though being “busy” makes us more important. If you’re doings things you love, there will never be enough time to fit it all in.
Instead of complaining, be grateful. You have a full life, if you can’t read the last half of that book in one sitting or write a few paragraphs, because there are so many other things taking up your time. You have things you want to do and people you want to do them with. That’s a blessing, not a curse.
Happy Tuesday, y’all!
