Are You Too Busy Too?
I had a revelation the other day. I was invited by some friends to join them for an event. I thanked them and replied that I had a very full schedule with the upcoming Virtual Yoga Conference, which is less than a week away.
I guess my friends were a bit put off because their response was “you are always too busy.” I got the sense that they were a little upset because I had declined some prior invitations they had invited me to. Interestingly, at that moment I realized that they were right to a degree – I was always “too busy.” But if that’s the case, doesn’t this mean that it is just my norm? If someone is always “too busy,” doesn’t that mean it’s just that person’s regular lifestyle?
We all need to have an insightful perspective on what is happening around us and how we choose to see it. For whatever reason, I am still able to run a company, make time for my child, have a roof over my head, food on the table, and practice my yoga and meditation daily. Also, I am able to carry on with other passions of mine by working it into my schedule on weekends.
No, I don’t have time for television, nights out on the town, social gatherings – but those are not what I want to do anyway. There was a time in my life when I had time to see three movies in one afternoon, have a three-hour workout daily, cook meals, and bake to my heart’s content, so I’ve been there and done that.
Now what I really want to do is experience the next thing that life has to offer me. After all, isn’t living your life to its fullest potential what it’s all about?
